Whew! The last card, can you believe it? If you have stuck with me each day through the sharing of each of these cards, I want to give you a big "thank you"! I hope it didn't get to redundant. I just really felt like some would get something out of taking a closer look at each card.
I think I managed to create a category that just about anything and everything could go in to, but decided that for the last card, that maybe a catch all category would be a good choice. I hope that by the end of the year that there are some things that will surprise me and make me happy, things I didn't anticipate with a category. I really believe that once I start focusing more happiness and on little things in life that add so much to my life that I never thought about before that there will end up being discoveries that I just couldn't see from this starting point. I think it will be filled with some really good surprises. At the end of the project, I think this will be a category I will treasure most because it will be one filled with things I didn't anticipate.
For this card, I wanted it to be pretty simple. I combined two of the 7g ephemera cards with a journaling strip and then topped them off with a flower and trinket pin. As I did with the other ephemera cards, I distressed the edges and then inked the edges.
I added some curves and bends so that the pieces would lay up off of the card. As explained yesterday, I added minimal adhesive so that they would be attached but look very free from the base card.
The journaling strip on this card really sums up the category. There is no rhyme or reason to what is in it, it is just totally random things.
Okay, that is it! That is the last of the category cards. I have one last post on this project tomorrow, a few images of the tray itself for those that wanted a closer look at how I covered mine. So until tomorrow. . .
