The one that nearly got away...

...there are quite a few cards I make that never make it to my blog...I make them and then I think they're not good enough to show the world....

This is one of them...

I kind of like it, though it's not one of my fave ever creations...but I do like the fern stamp from Clarity.

I cut away the front of the card so that I could extend the stamping right along the inside of the card.

Well, I hope someone out there likes it...if just one person does then it was worth posting!

I think it's beautiful; the muted colours you used for the fern, the way you centred the greeting in the middle of the flourish stamp and the contrast between the black and the white.

There ya go!

This one is very definately worth posting Sarita, it's very elegant and sophisticated, as all your cards are. Know what you mean though about not being good enough to show, that's exactly how I feel about my last one. I only put it on my blog as the challenge has had a lack of entries lately and was in danger of ending, otherwise it would have gone in my 'rejects' pile!
Back to work today so no time to make another.
Enjoy the Bank Holiday

Must have been worth posting then. I like it! Then again I can't think of much of anything that you've ever posted that I don't like. All your creations have a serene elegance to them. Something that I admire, but certainly can't duplicate! Thanks for the look at one that's "not good enough" (HA!)

I can’t work out why you were cautious about posting this card. Your use of the solid grey background with the soft tassels against the soft (perfectly coordinating) grey ferns against the solid white background is sublime! Warmest wishes, Lesley
