Online Card Class - Day 1

Hello everyone,
Online Card Class started today, and I created my first card CASEing the 'Amazing' Laura Bassen! The one thing I was unable to incorporate in my card was her use of white tissue paper (brilliant idea)...it seems that all the tissue paper in my house right now is either a loud color or a print...geez! So, anyway, here is my card:



I used my new Hero Arts Large Lotus Pattern stencil for the background, and sentiments from the Forever set. The ampersand is from Paper Smooches. I added some white thread behind the frame and trimmed off a little of the front panel before mounting it to a white card base.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven't signed up for this class yet, there's still plenty of time, and of course, lifetime access! 

Take care,
Barb
