I decided to sew a piece of Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper to the focal panel after I had matted it with chocolate cardstock. I also added a white scalloped border to the bottom for some contrast to the browns...but it still didn't look right yet. DUH...paper piercing! LOL! I pierced around the upper portion of the panel to frame the focal hearts. That was just the touch it needed...or was it? The more I looked at it, the more I was certain that something else needed to be done. I finally walked away from my crafting area for a break when it hit me...corner rounding! I rushed back to my table, and rounded the corners on the bottom of the panel. I was finally satisfied! What do you think of the end result?
That's it for me! It's my birthday, and I am going to spend it running around with my guys today. I will see you back here tomorrow, though! Until then...
