Identity Crisis .......

Not me, I hasten to add - my card lol. This started out one way and ended up totally opposite to what I thought I was making - so is it a birthday card or a sympathy/thinking of you card - my little boy thinks a sympathy card and my husband voted for birthday.
Needless to say I was attempting to acquaint myself with stronger colour yet again and play with the combination of Real Red, Old Olive and So Saffron as in an earlier post - once again using the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set.

Like Topsy the number of flowers just kept on growing - in my mind I was going to do a nice structured three flower matted look on 6 x 4 landscape cardstock but then I started tearing and inking and before I knew it my structure had disappeared - so I didn't fight it and just decided to let myself go - my friends know that I don't do 'letting go' terribly well - letting go and Bridgette are not normally mentioned in the same sentence - this probably explains the resulting card - it has a kind of structured letting go about it.

So what do I think?

Mmmmmmm ..... Thinking of You ........... I think!! What do you think?



  1. I think your card is beautful Bridgette. Love all those beautiful flowers!

  2. Gorgeous card. There are so many possibilities. It could be a bright sympathy, thank you, thinking of you, best wishes, etc... Personally, I'd send it as a thank you card, although I wouldn't be afraid to use it as a sympathy card too!! Fab work.

  3. Hmmm, how un-Bridgette of you but I love the result,very Sara

  4. well I think it could suit lots of occasions and is a very pretty card I especially like the flowers.

  5. I love this card. You need to continue "letting go" continue to produce stunning creations. Needless to say, inspiring me to get more involved in card making! Keep it up. Joyce


Is there anyone out there? Your comments let me know that I am not alone in my 'happy space' - which is very reassuring. Thank you.
