Checking for Mail

Hi, what a week it's been.  Trying to get ready for the baby shower on Saturday.  I worked quite a bit this week on making favors.  They are finally done.  Now off to buy prizes for the games.  Then wrapping, wrapping, wrapping.  Oh, and off to the restaurant to pay the bill.
Can't forget that one or they'll be no shower.

This card is for Crafty Catz Challenge #139 - Metal,
 and the sponsor for this week is Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

The image I used is from A Day for Daisies.  This card has gone through so many transformations it's funny.  My daughter was visiting when I was originally working on this card.  We picked out a paper and I put the card together.  The  more I looked at it, the more I felt it was way too busy.  A couple of days later I ripped it apart and tried some different papers.  I tried some very simple papers and this one.  I finally settled on this paper.  I left it another couple of days and looked at it again.  Still too busy for my liking.  Along came this challenge to use metal.  I decided to try metal corners on it to see if I like it any better.  The jury is still out on this one.

Copics: B00, B02, B12. B14, BG0000, BG000, BG10, C0, C1, C3, C5, 
E00, E02,E34, E35, G20, G21, G24, R17, Y17, YR09

Isn't it funny how you can fuss and fuss over a card. It isn't like you can never make another one with that stamp. Anyhow, this turned out just gorgeous. Very, very pretty.
