Look what Happens When I Don't have a Plan!

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday I was sitting in my craft room and wanted to make a card but had no idea what to do.  I started looking through my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (which is Awesome btw!) but still had no ideas.  I saw alot of cute cuts and decided to just cut a few out.  Since I didn't want to waste any of my "pretty paper" I just used plain cream colored cardstock.
When I was done "playing"  I decided to practice my inking- because I still had no ideas forming in my head!
Once everything was inked, I looked over at my pile of pieces and "magically" they were arranged perfectly!  
I inked another piece of cardstock for a background, cut and embossed a piece of Kraft Cardstock, stamped a Pink By Design sentiment, added some 3 Girl JAM ribbon and buttons, and look what happened!!


Sometimes I make prettier things when I don't have a "plan"!  LOL!!

Since I want to show it off, I searched through all the challenge sites that I follow and found quite a few that this fits into!


That's quite the list!  I couldn't have made something on purpose to fit that many challenges if I tried!!

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Your card is stunning Julie! I seem to always start out that way, not having a plan, but my cards don't seem to turn out as pretty as yours! Great job! I have to know what embossing folder you used on your kraft paper. Looks terrific! Thanks for joining the DCD Challenge this week--Pat N.
