I grabbed some designer paper (Pyrus collection from BasicGrey) and started over. The cross is stamped on one of the plain sheets in the pack and embossed with Garnet (gold, red, burgundy, lovely multihued effect) and edged in brown ink. I think I put a little too much of the "old rugged" in, but I was running out of time. A quick mat on some espresso linen and gold, then some coordinating papers underneath with the annoying realization that the cross shape does not lend itself to pleasing compositions. Again, running out of time. Mounted all on some burgundy cardstock (the espresso base was better, but felt that was too much brown for a happy day for a little girl). In my defence, this colour scheme is perfect for today as we are in the midst of the fall colours and everywhere you look are glorious golds, yellows, oranges, reds and burgundies.
Well I'd better dash. Just got busted - perhaps blogging is not on the essential to-do list for getting ready for church. I guess we're not walking over today!
