Global Design Project #068 - Perfect Day

This week's Global Design Project challenge is to CASE designer Jess Williams:

I'll admit that I fussed and fussed with this project.  I had a picture in my head and things just weren't translating to paper the way I wanted them to.  In the end, I was fairly happy with this card, but decided it was just time to move on.  I'm fairly certain when I give this card to someone, they'll love it...but I will pick apart the imperfections I know are there. That's the price I pay for being a perfectionist.  Honestly, I've gotten so much better, but there are still times when that trait gets the best of me.

(Oh geeze, and now that I'm looking at the card to case, I realize that it doesn't even have the little tag on the bow...that was Jess's other card!  Gah!!!  As I said...moving on!!)

When I was working this card out, I knew I wanted to use something from the new Occasions catalog and the Builder Birdcage set was perfect!  I think it's so fun that you can make the birdcages into chandeliers!  So adorably fancy!  One tip I can share for this card that I learned because I was totally being impatient:  you can emboss first, then lightly color over the image with a watercolor pencil and add water with an aqua painter. The first couple of times I tried doing the chandelier image, I watercolored first, but it was taking way to much time to dry...ain't nobody got time for that!

I used the following products on this project:
