Paper Romance Challenge #2

This is my second post for the day.  If you are looking for my post on Try It Out Tuesday/Thursday #71 (TIOT) scroll down...


Today I have another challenge for you from the Paper Romance Blog.  Our very talented DT, Vicky, has challenged us to create a summer card or project.  Here's what I came up with:


I really wanted to have the image hanging from a branch, but I didn't have one... so I had to go with plan B!  My card just seemed to have a mind of it's own and this is what it turned into lol!  As I see it here, the tire is waaaaaaaaay too dark for the rest of the card.  Oh well.  Maybe I'll redo the image if I can pry it off the paper without ruining it!  This is yet another lesson for me to learn:  Do NOT wait for the last day to finish my card.  Did you see that I said 'finish'?  I did start it on Tuesday...


This is Swinging Shannon from Amy at Paper Romance.  She's one of the cuties by High Hopes.  Amy has many adorable stamps, including Bildmalarna and Popcorn the Bear in her store now and she's adding more and more all the time.
