So Very Much CTC#115 - Saleabration Love

Hello and Welcome to another fun and inspiring Sunday Night Blog Hop!

This week, we are featuring our stupendous Saleabration Catalogue, and in particular, we are CASEing (Copy and Selectively Edit) from pages 8 - 11.
And I've been inspired by the projects on page 8 AND 9, and my creation is a mish mash of several elements of these projects.

First:  I wanted to use So Very Much - that gorgeous big thank you in particular....
Second:  I wanted to dabble with the Delicate Details stamp with the lace trims,
Third:  I really love this gorgeous card that features the lovely lace framework on the right below.
So that's where I started,
the 'thank you' image is way way too big for this lovely layout and then the
 lace trim frame was  NOT successful
When I put it together, it covered ALL of the gorgeous Falling in Love DSP 
- so that  was not going to work .....
(my piece of DSP is now waiting for another project).

So back I went to the page 8 images and used the quick and easy card on the right as my starting point -
and my compromise was to use the lacy bits on the side, and just frame the thank you.
It looked a bit plain, so I added some texture with the Hexagon dynamic embossing folder and a little wrapping of the Saleabration gold Metallic Ribbon

What do you think?
After all that evolution of creation, I'm rather happy with the final result 
- but that could be the result of lots of angst and trial and effort, and I was just totally happy to have a card at the end of the journey!!!
