This week at Just Us Girls, the challenge is this great CAS sketch from Maria. Naturally, I had to make a Valentine card.
The first card I made (see card below the sketch) didn't have any stamping except for the sentiment. I really liked it- I really did. I loved the papers I used and how they just went together so well. I kept looking at it and smiling and this little nagging guilt started rearing its head. The problem with the card was there WASN'T any stamping except for the sentiment. That just is not acceptable in my world. I am a stamper, I use dies folders etc as embellishments not the main focus. I even wrote a wee rant about it here.
So I got out my stamps and reworked the card. I tried to keep the same patterns on the nonstamped card because I really do like it.
What do you all think, cheater card or stamped card? Am I nuts to even worry? Is this all a product of too much school work or work in general? Who knows? But please join us at Just US Girls with your take on Maria's sketch.
