Color Throwdown Challenge #67
and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #46.
AFTER I got my card 80% done I realized that Mercy's sketch was a square and mine was not! AAACK - but sketches are supposed to just be the general guidelines right!?!? (ok you would think by now I would be better at reading the fine details!)
I made a congratulations card for a special friend of mine who is celebrating a wonderful achievement. I wanted to make her something totally FUN and even a little wild/whimsical.
GinaK's Tag Lines. The accent stamps that coordinate with the Vintage 4 nesties comes from WaltzingMouse Stamps - I LOVE them! I didn't have any Durango paper but I had the kraft, sky and artichoke. I substituted GinaK's Pumpkin Spice for the Durango - hope it's close. I used my PaperTrey Guidelines set to create some DP of my own to go with this week's colors then I found scraps of some sky and artichoke DPs for my accent pieces. Used a colorful brad on the focal image "frame" and added some pearl accents for the Mercy sketch but because I didn't make it square I was out of room and couldn't put all 3 at the top.
I hope my friend gets a BIG SMILE from this card. Thanks for visiting. I hope to see all of you on Saturday for our next Just Us Girls Challenge - we have a fun sketch for you this week.
