Hi there! Here's the card I created for the most recent challenge over at Jazzy Paper Designs!

Inspiration photo:

My take on it:

I used "Background Basics: Woodgrain" (PTI) to create the background panels. Then I stamped over them with images from "Gratitude = Joy" (Unity).

The lines of the woodgrain reminded me of the sketch lines on the album cover in the inspiration photo.

I have been wanting to play along with the Jazzy Paper Challenges for AGES, and I'm so glad I finally did!!!'s 6 hours before the deadline, but you can let me slide on that, right?

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! I appreciate your feedback!!!

Have a GREAT Saturday! I'm heading to an event at an art gallery with my friend and her daughter! FUN!
