Pocket Silhouettes

WAY back in 1985 when I was studying psychology at Allegheny College, I wrote my undergraduate thesis on computer anxiety.  This was at the time when students were moving from typewriters and Brother word processors over to PCs. It was the era of WordPerfect.  Remember the black screen with green characters and dot matrix printers? Or maybe it was the blue screen with white letters. (It's okay,  I know you've done the math and figured out how OLD I am!)  My thesis was actually fun to write.  I thought I got over my personal computer anxiety,  but it's coming back as I tackle my new computer challenge -- BLOGGING!

Since I'm new to this blogging thing, I know I have to go into my photo editing program and add a watermark to my creations.  But that will come with future posts. One thing at a time!  I was just so happy this morning to get a "subscribe" button on my blog.  Yes, I am patting myself on the back for that one ; )

This card is an adaptation from page 111 of the IBC. I used markers to ink up the Pocket Silhouette stamp - old olive, melon mambo, so saffron and pear pizzazz.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  The card base is melon mambo.  I ran the large white layer through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  It is finished off with some pearls in the center of the flowers along with some old olive satin ribbon.

Let me know what you think!
