Here's a quick card I made a few days back. I had just received the East Coast Prep papers, and wanted to use them. I pulled the colours from this striped piece and based my card on that. For this card, I actually pieced together everything else before the main panel. I tend to make the main panel too big, then my ribbon has to go too far to the right or left. So this time, I got the placement of that, then decided on a panel size. Finally, only at that point, I decided on what I would even put on the panel. I made it a birthday card, because I can always use more of those.
Have a good long weekend. I've been busy enjoying mine :D
