Ok, here is my question. Have you ever bought a set that you would seriously die without, then get it home and want to chuck it in the bin?
I have, I have found my nemesis, it is called carte postale. I seriously had to have this, I was going to make the most wonderful things with it. So far that has not happened.
So I needed to finish my swaps. It is a small local swap, I only had to make 5 cards. This is a whole weekends work. (sad I know) But it is all I could come up with. I love the matching papers but they all have flourishes and things on them which make them hard to make a card with or in this case 5 matching cards.
I do think this card is pretty, but it is also rather plain and simple. I hope it will be a good swap card, but then what is the worst that can happen.........be banned from swapping?

I would have maybe done more but with VSN closing in and my homework piling up. I need to move on to other things. I will be posting more about VSN so stay tuned.

It's the reason I didn't buy Carte Postale, I love what you did with it, but I would just sit there looking at it with no ideas flooding through my brain.I love your card, the ribbon really lifts it, great job sweetie!

And I thought it was just me having problems with this set! I can't seem to create a good card with it unless I'm case'ing an idea from splitcoast. *sigh* I love the images, but man is it ever hard to be creative with...

You are scaring me with this talk of not being able to make anything with this set......I just ordered it. This is a very pretty card so I don't understand what the problem is LOL.
