different kind of card for me

It is rare that I come up with my own kind of layout of a card or design of a card or a different way to cut a card...I usually stick with the same basic style. Well, this afternoon a layout (if that is what you call it) came to me...I tried to get other things done and just couldn't get this card out of my head. So once I put the kids to bed, I got out everything that I needed to make this card and I sat down to make it! I knew when it was done, when it looked right...funny how things work like that sometimes :)! It is a different style for me, hope you like it :)!

The first picture is an angled view of the card, and the second picture is the front view of my card...make sense??

What was needed to make this card:

~Blue cardstock that I got from Kim
~Brown chocolate chip cardstock from Carousel
~Avacado flat cardstock from Carousel
~White flat cardstock from Carousel
~Patterned paper from Imaginisce called "Loves Me-So Happy Together"

~ Brilliance black ink

Stamp set:
~ SU Embrace Life

~SU watercolor crayons Soft Subtles
~H2O brush from Michael's
~photo stickers

I made the usual card base, but trimmed just a little off the top of the front of the card...then sort of added a topper to the front of the card. If you would like more details let me know and I will write out some instructions :)!

This is awesome Catherine! I really like how you trimmed a section off and added the topper! Great card!!
