Back to My "Normal" Self.....

Remember yesterday when I said I was most comfortable with glitter and lace?  Well here I am again back in my comfort zone.  I used to try and fight my style, but now I've embraced it.  I like to play and experiment and push myself every now and then.  But I'm most comfortable with a certain style.  And I have decided that I am perfectly fine with that.  ;)  What is your style?
How would people describe it?

I have a Crafty Secret's card to share with you today.  It uses digital elements from the Valentine Digital CD collection. I printed the post card twice, so I could cut out the roses, and added glossy accents and glitter.  I used dimensional foam circles to give it depth between the layers. 
All of the papers were also from the digital CD. I love that I have control over how big the design is.  It's perfect for cardmakers! I added a bit of lace behind the image, seam binding, pearls, and a button to finish it off. 
There's that depth that I was talking about...... 
Yesterday, Cortney had her tooth filled.  She was such a champ!  I am so proud of how brave she was!  And the dentist and her nurse are such patient caring people. 
They took their time with her, talked to her and put her at ease. 
All that worry I had, and it turned out beautifully!
I am off to shovel snow before heading in to work.
5 inches.
Have a great weekend my friends!
XOXO

And glitter and lace suits you brilliantly! I love your style...partially because it is so different from mine! LOL! I like CAS - clean, simple designs. That's me. I like to stretch now and then, too, though, so I totally get that! This card is beautiful!!!

Beautiful card Michele! I hear ya! I've too realized I have a creative comfort zone. I'm learning to embrace it as well. I like to venture off every now and then, but always end up in my zone.

Your style is beautiful!

Beautiful card. I like your "creative zone". Happy too that Cortney had a good dentist app.. I feel the same way about going to the dentist as she does. Enjoy the day!
