Scor Pal Play


Good morning everyone,

Here's a deceptively simple card for the day. I had good intentions of posting once every day this week, but my goal has been shot in the foot...or, shall we say, knee. DH's knee is the size of a football, causing us to spend yesterday in town chasing its problem. We have to return at lunch today for more tests.

Anyway, back to my card. I was playing with my Scor-Pal this morning, scoring up some backgrounds for future use, as one does. There are some lovely things out there using this great product and I am so excited that a metric one will soon be available to me. I actually DON'T use it to score my base card, as our card dimensions are slightly different to the US. I do, however, use it for a myriad of other things...like scoring this simple background.

I also used it to create the frame around the image. I reckon it jazzes up the card just nicely. The colours are ever so bright and cheery. I took this photo with my new camera outside in the blazing sunlight...Cool, eh?

Materials
Stamps: Hero Arts LL229 A Great Big

I really like the scored grid!! I have been so on the fence about a ScorPal. It looks pretty cool though. Love your card!

The grid is fabulous! Love the color combo you used. So springy and cheerful! hm...I'm looking thru all your cards to pick one to case...I've narrowed it down to 2 but this card is making me re-think. What to do, what to do! :)
