I had such fun slowing down to make this card. I was so rushed during the Saturday’s Stamp-a-Faire though it was very fun. I took my time and just when I thought I was done, I added something else and I am THRILLED with it!
The challenge was to use the colours shown below in the inspiration photo. I only had the green and coral colours so I had to hunt to find this yellow paper that fortunately had both yellows in it! YEAH! I tried to use the rule of threes on this but I don’t have three yellows. I debated adding a yellow button somewhere but decided against it because I couldn’t becide where to put it. Maybe in the white space to the left of the sentiments? Hmm… I’d love to hear your thoughts on the issue!
I did make a small mistake; I am fairly new to PTI card stock. I grabbed a scrap of green for the leaves and the panel under the lace. When I put away the rest of the scrap and one other, I realized they were different, the one I used was darker. Ooops! I had used Ripe Avocado instead of chartreuse. Bummer! Too late to change it now.
I also used this month’s SFYTT on this card but I basically cut off the bottom so it would be a landscape design instead of portrait. Interesting how some sketches are thrown off my altering them but others are still awesome!
If you enjoyed this card, I hope you will visit again. I have subscription thingies on my sidebar. Have fun on the rest of the blog hop!
