Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning!  It's Thursday!  The week is almost over and I'm looking forward to the weekend - I'm off work!

I have a card to share with you that I love how it turned out - however, I hate how my photos turned out.  No matter what I did, it just didn't turn out the way I wanted it to.  I also don't like that Picasa decides how to crop the photos and I can't get it to undo it!  Urrgh!  Oh well, onto my card...  The image I used is from Lindsay's newest sets Teariffic Stamps.  I loved the doodle flower and wanted that for my focal image.


I did use the sketch from Just Us Girls and I really loved the challenge of this sketch!  Talk about so much fun putting this card together!  Here's another view of the card, closed...


I actually decorated the inside of the card a little bit.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Yo-Yo Yellow
Paper:  Piggy Tales - It's Raining, It's Pouring Collection Morning
Copics:  B02, B05, YG00, YG03, Y15
Tools:  1 3/8" & 1 1/4" circle punches, CM Circle Cutter
Embellishments:  Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to visit Lindsay and the rest of the team for more fun and inspiration.  Did you see the badge?  Mark your calendar for the super fun blog hop, shop & crop coming up next week!

Melissa, I do manual cropping in Picasa all the time. You should be able to select manual and then click and drag a box around the area of your picture that you want to keep. Although, I can't see anything wrong with the way this turned out. I'm trying to figure out how you got the cute scallops at the bottom but I'm guessing those are circles?? Anyway, super cute card!
