Arch Window Card-Upcycled!!

Did you notice my clever use of the hip and trendy term "upcycle"? I see this word sprinkled about by people who are ever so much cooler than I, and have been waiting for the opportunity to prove that I am quite current. The beautiful vintage scene I used for this Creative Cuts and More Arch Window card is actually cut from the cover of my Graphic 45 Christmas Past paper pad. I love how it turned out, and I'm feeling very smug about my wise use of resources.

I made this for this week's 2 Sketches 4 You challenge, but I couldn't quite get the sketch right, so I'm not sure I should even link it. Sometimes I just can't convince my card to acquiesce to the sketch. What's a girl to do? Some cards are just disobedient. Creative Cuts and More is sponsoring 2S4Y this week, if you have time, please play with us! I love Laura & Kazan's sketches, they are very talented! Sometimes I even make a card that resembles the sketch!!

I'm not cool (dang it!), and I must not hang out with any cool people, cuz I have NEVER heard the term "upcycle" before! I'm sticking with you, Carla--I need to keep on top of things!!!

LOVE this gorgeous, vintage card--the arched window is fabulous! I don't care if you stuck with the sketch or not, I love it! Hope you're having a wonderful day! (I'm freezing!)
