I give up

This started out a one layer......didn'y get to far, I just can't do it. I try and try. They just fell like they aren't finished. I started out witht he Kassie's Brocade eb folder, then added the Garden Trellis, had to have a fanciful Swirl, with punched out and store bought flowers. I so need a new bow easy, but here's what ya get until then LOL. I am off work today but have a few appointments and get my hair cut, I do mean cut. I just can't stand this any longer LOL. I'll be around looking and commenting later so until then, God Bless!

Your card is absolutely gorgeous, Olga! I love all the white and the embossing and diecuts! Never mind the one layer idea!

Hi Olga, I understand trying to master a new technique, however, this card is so wonderful I wouldn't trash yourself too much. You may not have made a one layer card but you made an AMAZING card. NancyD

Hey, this is supposed to stay fun. Don't get frustrated. Just let the crafting energy flow! Your work is always beautiful.

It may not be exactly CAS, but it is gorgeous all the same. I'm a fussy budget when it comes to adding on to cards. The more the merrier I think! Anyway, have a good day off and getting your hair done!

This is beautiful! Love the embossing with that pretty lavender ribbon. Hope your hair came out perfect. I get that way, where I just want to cut it off again.

MiamiKel said...

Oh my goodness, would you look at this beauty - stunning!!

Frann said...

Your card is beautiful! I am so with you on not being able to do good one layer cards. I have finally decided that I just prefer to physically build or construct a card rather than just stamping it. When I use stamps for anything other than the sentiment, I almost always end up cutting them out and popping them up on foam adhesive.
Just keep doing multi layer cards. You do them so very well!

That's ok, I can't do one layer either. Your card is lovely and I am glad you kept adding to it.

Carolina Little said...

Very very beautiful. I wouldn't be happy with just one lawyer either. Great job. Edna

Liz Williams said...

What a beautiful embossing pattern, Olga. White embossing always seems so elegant to me. I love the way the light picks up the pattern so lovely on the white.

Colleen said...

Olga,
You are way too funny, I know what you mean by one layer cards tough it took some time to get use to doing them when I was doing them.
I just got my hair cut yesterday too! The girl had to take off more that 7 inches. I keep it really long for the winter and then shorter in the summer.
P.S. This card is very pretty.

Selma said...

It turned out gorgeous Olga.
