**New** JUGS Split Negative

Today, I tried something new. JUGS had a split technique challenge.. Thank you Gina K. of stamp tv for doing a tutorial video on this technique!  I must admit, it took me a while to get the image lined up, but I think it turned out good. I wanted to keep the colors masculine because this is a card for someone I know who is deployed. I tried my new paper piercing template and I think it turned out great. Added a nice touch to the card, wouldn’t you say?  My sentiment and stamp is from PTI’s Out to Sea set. I edge distressed the sentiment. And used my scor bug to make all the score lines…. So, what do you think…. Good enough to send to a man out to sea? Or good enough to submit to a publication? Nah… I wouldn’t go that far! Happy Saturday everyone!
