CPS #173

It's been forever since I've been to a TH night spin class, but I went tonight because I felt like I needed to get a spin class in due to skipping the TU night one. The guy that usually teaches this class has moved to a different gym. He was cool, and I always felt that I got a good workout in afterwards. I was willing to give the lady tonight a chance. She was nice and friendly, but I wasn't really feeling her music. I didn't think it was energizing enough. She also announced that because of low attendance, the gym will not be holding the TH night spin class for the rest of the summer, starting next week. :/ I hope she didn't think it was because of her. I guess people thought that 7 PM was a little later than they'd like class to be.

Did anyone watch the first episode of the new Real World: New Orleans? Wow, that Ryan kid needs to take a chill pill. Starting all that drama with his new roommates on the FIRST NIGHT is not the best way to make a good first impression. It makes for great television though!

Oh, come on! Like you don't want junk TV...

For today's card, I tackled Card Positioning System's sketch #173. Instead of doing six individual items on the right, I decided to squish them into one element by doing the pleated ribbon technique. I was better prepared this time with stronger double stick tape and glue as a back up. I felt that the card needed some more visual interest, so I added the rhinestones for the centers of some of the flowers. I like how the card has lots of curves: the rounded pleats of the ribbon, the rounded corners of the left panel and the rounded corner of the card.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Red

I like your patterned paper and that ribbon treatment is so interesting.
