"Can it be?"
"Would she really?"
"Oh my gosh...colored card stock!?!?"
It looks strange, doesn't it? Totally unexpected.
But as I was clearing out my ribbon stash, tossing a bunch that will never get used into my "get rid of" box, I found just enough of this delightful blue satin for a single card and decided to use it.
The raised panel looked weird on a white base. Oh, yes. I tried. But the card needed more color than just the ribbon to unify it. Now, the colors are more balanced, and that fabulous sentiment (Clearly Besotted, I think) shines.
Just because I don't use colored card stock often doesn't mean I don't use it at all.
And that ribbon is GONE. It felt good to use something up.
Not to mention a half sheet of bashful blue card stock.
Are you using stuff up? Have you stepped outside your comfort zone this year yet? If not, give it a try!
