Loving You...inside out!

Yep, this card opens backwards!  It's the "Backwards Fold Card" and super fun to make. It certainly challenges our 'thinking' because we are so used to creating a card with the fold on the left.  I created a Make It Monday video on this new fold and you can view it by CLICKING HERE. Tips: 1) I used a sponge in Sahara Sand ink to distress the color of the white doily.  2) I used a Sharpie marker to color in my pearl.  This tip is wonderful for coloring not only your pearls but rhinestones, too! Try it! CONFESSION:  The small heart on the front of the card (do you see it, at the bottom right edge of the designer paper?)...well, it's covering a boo-boo.  I accidentally ripped the designer paper when it stuck to my work surface. I was so mad....!  So, I used this as an opportunity to "embellish" my mistake.
