In the old days, gaudy embellishments were beat out of us in journalism school.
(Not so much, anymore. But true back in the day.)
As a result, I’ve had to learn to embellish my words.
It’s like getting dressed.
First, I put on the outfit.
Then, I accessorize.
Sometimes, I use too many accessories
and have to edit.
Other times, I don’t have enough,
and must add.
In my own writing, gaudy’s a step too far.
But embellishing is still required.

This is my very first contest, so please help make it a success!
I must have at least 15 different entries for this giveaway. If not,
I’ll roll them into a future giveaway, which means you’ll already qualify.
Paperculture.com cards are on high-quality eco-card stock and have modern
