Remember when...

     So much has changed since I started paper crafting. In some ways, cardmaking has become much easier: computers, die-cuts, machines, etc. And so many choices on designer paper, cardstock colors, matching ribbons, buttons and other embellishments. Wow! No wonder my Craft Room is overflowing.

     The gals over at 365 Cards (they're the ones that encourage you to make a card a day) had a recent Challenge for us to create a card using the trends back when we first started cardmaking.

     Boy, did that take me back. Fortunately, I'm not sure I should admit this, I still have some of the paper and punches I used when I first began making cards. So I used them to create the following card.

     The DP is cardstock that I had splattered with bright green and pink paint. The corner punch is one of the first ones I ever bought. I also used a couple old Sizzix dies (the heart and tags). It was all put together on pink cardstock with a bright green mat. OK, the ribbon is new, but I'm sure I used ribbon back when I started making cards.
     I'm also adding this card to the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger (the picture is below).  I'm picking up the pinks and greens in the picture. I really love the Spring colors.
