Top Note Fun #1 & CCBGC #13

Hello my bloggy sisters! I hope you are having a wonderful day. Thanks so much for stopping by. I have a card to share today for the Crafty Critters Blog Group Challenge #13. Jenny hosted this one and her challenge to us was to make a split negative card. Now, I've never tried this and it didn't turn out like I had hoped. You see when it comes to stamping exactly straight and especially twice in a row...well, let's just say that's not one of my strong points. But, this is my creation...


As you can tell I chose a sheer ribbon to go over my 'split negative'. I thought this might do good at distracting the eye from the fact that it's not a perfect split! hee! hee! I used real red c/s as my base then stamped the SU! medallion stamp on a white top note in chocolate chip ink then on a chocolate chip top note in white craft ink. 'Hello' is from the fundamental phrases stamp set. I did a little fake stitching on two corners.
It's not what I imagined it would be but it's as close as this fumble fingers can get. hee! hee!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
Until next time...
Blessings...

Melina, this card turned out great! This awesome image would be a challenge for anyone to line up and you did just fine!

This is very pretty! And it doesn't matter that the images don't line up. It's still perfect!!!

I think your card turned out lovely and your split looks good to me ;) The ribbon is a nice touch as well!

Classy card! Don't worry - it's not that noticible that it's not even (mine wasn't perfect either!)
