Okay, so I totally owe you my JUGS card from Saturday, I know :] AND, I did finish it…tonight. The problem is that I HATE the end result. Nothing about it that appeals to me at all…so I have to ditch it or fix it before I can share and be proud of my project. I know I’ve been behind lately in everything papercraft related, from my projects to commenting on the challenge blog entries…but I just can’t seem to get caught up, much less ahead with everything that’s happening in my life right now. Without going into too much detail, I’m moving on 1 April. While I’m anxious to start fresh in a new home, it’s stressful to move. There is a TON of stuff to take care of…but my career and my active teenager keep me plenty busy without the added stress of moving. I trust everything will fall into place when all is said and done, but getting there can be a rocky road.
Soo…all that to share my day late, and dollar short Color Throwdown card! Ms. Cathy is our hostess this week, and coincidentally this is her last challenge (indefinitely…you can read more about that on the CTD blog). Her color combo truly challenged me this week! I have something against putting two greens together for some reason, even though I always seem to manage once I get it together :) Which is exactly what happened this week.
Here’s my project:
I love how it turned out. It' looks kind of shabby chic, but there’s no distressing of any kind…isn’t that a prerequisite of that style? LOL I used the MOJO Monday sketch (like some of our other girls) but had it all laid out before I saw what the team did, so I went with it :) Kind of a simple card that looks more involved due to the faux stitching, the elegant frame and the pretty ribbon treatment. I debossed the main, cream layer and then pierced the border. The butterfly and frame are cut files from My Time Made Easy.
Thanks for hanging in there and not ditching me due to lack of posts recently :| Hopefully I’ll get into a better routine when I move!
Have a wonderful Thursday and Friday!
