The one about being somewhat mysterious

Don't you just love it when something comes together without much effort? And its something you end up liking?

I needed to make a card for Liz's folder (in our spirit card swap). I already had a failed card that was painted with black and white paint, so I covered that with dressmakers tissue. I saw this snippet of a photo on my messy desk so I added it to the edge of the card. The hand-dyed ribbons were sitting in the messiness, too. And I went with more small punched stars. I like those.

Be somewhat mysterious.

Man, I'll say this card worked! I really love it. I have been so out of the zone lately. I'm starting to feel those familiar creative tugs. Love that feeling.
