The Paper Players #69: Nance's sketch

Hi everybody! First of all, I have to thank The Paper Players team for choosing my card as a Cut Above last week! I feel so good when someone likes my creations.

When I start the process of creating a card, I don't know what I am going to come up with. I can have a vague idea, but when you put papers and embellishments together, the original idea of your card changes completely! At least that's what happens to me. This is also why I truly enjoy (I think this happens to you, too) that part in the creating process in which you play with your stuff. After that, and once you have created your card, publishing is the following process in which you open up to people, followers, friends and family to show your creation, and if you add to that the fact that people liked your card and selected it in a challenge or contest, even better! It's like the cherry on top. I feel pleased and gratified.

Hope you like my creation today! Have a great day and God bless you all!
