Here are my six cards piled on my Longaberger shelf with my little bird cage and ceramic bird I picked up at Michaels. Aren't they sweet? I thought they would make adorable little Valentine cards ♥
Here are some shots of the similar colors paired together.
These were super quick and easy if you can't tell by looking. First of all, ANY card that I create in one day (no coloring prior to, or using a partially created card, no stitching the day after, etc.) is a QUICK card for me. These were all started and finished tonight after a full day of work, picking my daughter up from school after she failed her concussion test, taking her to dinner and to her gymnastics meet anyway to support her friends, and picking her up. Oh, and I walked the dogs :O) LOL If I had more time, I likely would have added some stitching or at least some faux stitching...and I probably would have figured out a way to use some ribbon (my fave embellishment)...BUT, I think they're just fine how they are now, so, no added flavor!
Check out the rest of the Color Throwdown DT's projects! They're SURE to inspire you.
Have a great (and hopefully SHORT) week! Thanks for stopping by ♥
