graphic elements

Today I'm sharing the card I made inspired by the "graphic elements" section of my paint sample booklet. This is my number ONE favorite card I've made in a long time! As you may notice it's directly inspired by the little section of the idea page that is in the top left of my photo. And here is a closeup. The color on the left is sahara sand. My photo doesn't show the color so well.
And the inside.
I'm not sure exactly why, but this simple style is REALLY pleasing to me. It doesn't hurt that I LOVE that Pocket Notes SU set.
The Pocket Notes is by SU and the Open Circles is by Cornish Heritage Farms.
In other news:
I decided I'm not going to join SU. I'm going to place a rocking HUGE order of course, but I don't need to be a demonstrator. I really like using the handful of other companies that I love, I don't want to have parties or worry about quotas. I feel good about this. I also cut down my wishlist a ton. Wanna know it? Of course you do!
Scenic Season - although I'm considering not making Christmas cards. I really enjoyed doing the photo cards last year and I generally don't like making the same card 50 times. So I think I'll not get this one and not make Christmas cards at all.
Wellness Wishes - I've read that people hate this set. I LOVE it. It doesn't hurt that I don't have ANY get well stamps! I'm not sure how that happened. But I guess I need this stamp set!
Look Who's Turning - Hello, it has an octopus! Done!
Extreme Surfboard - I don't surf. But I cannot resist this lovely stamp. It's a must have for me.
Upsy Daisy - not new, still wanting it
Lovely as a Tree - not new, still wanting it
Seeing Stars - I'm a bit obsessed with stars as of late.
Just Perfect Alphabet - I'm not a huge alphabet person, but this particular one really is "just perfect"
All the in color paper. I don't like SU's inks. So just the paper, maybe some of the ribbon. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the new In Colors. OHMYHECK I love them. Even that purple one.
Holiday Lounge paper. (although not if I'm not going to make Christmas cards)
Thoroughly Modern Papre. - Heck I might get two packs of this. I love it.
Thoroughly Modern gusseted envelopes - I recently took over bills here at the house and I need these to help me stay organized and also they are SO lovely.
Dots and designs rub ons.
Modern Label punch
I may be low on black cardstock, I'll have to check.
