Am I a Scrap Addict? - Sketch #5

Hey there peeps! Hope everyone is well and not too chilly! I don't know about you, but I'm sick of cold weather and long dark nights already. How many months 'til summer is it again?!

Well, it is time for another Am I a Scrap Addict? sketch and I have to admit, I struggled with this week's sketch. When I first looked at it, I had a vision immediately in my head of what I was going to do. Unfortunately, it did not translate well on to the page.....! AND, I swear that this is going to be the first and last time that I ever use reflective silver card - what a nightmare to photograph?! NEVER AGAIN!

I mounted a layer of Basic Grey 'Sultry' paper onto black card and matted this panel onto my card base which was covered with (evil) silver card. I cut a Nestie circle from more (evil) silver card and layered a black card star shape on to this. The whole ensemble was finished with a pink ribbon bow and Doodlebug rub-ons.

I'm not sure about this card. It feels a bit Marmitey... I can't tell if I love it or if I hate it! Apologies again for the picture!

I think your card looks great but I know what is like when what you have in your head won't go onto the paper like you want it to!
