Okay I have to say...this week is FLYING by! That's good, right?! Bad part is I just can't seem to catch up. I will though...every peak has a valley...just biding my time for the lull. So, that brings me to today's Color Throwdown challenge! Laura selected this pretty palette that is perfect for your Valentine cards!
I waited until the last minute to make my card, so I ended up not showcasing the palette like I should have. Not in love with the final result...and I stepped out of my comfort zone and colored this sweet PI image my friend and CTD sister, Bar sent me. She is adorable, but my Copic coloring leaves a lot to be desired. Either way, I think my card will be perfect for a little girl's birthday, so I'll hold onto it :]
I used my December MTME paper Dotted Stripes and recolored it to Real Red for my card. My decorative circle is my MTME All Tied Up Circle cut file. I created a "window" in SCAL on both circular layers and differed the size of the two rectangles by 0.2". I added a punched flower with a flat backed pearl to my sweet PI lady's hair and two primas to my red bow. Quick and easy...which is good if this ends up in the hands of a youngin' :] I used the Sweet Sunday sketch (SSSC103) for my layout...I just flipped it on it's side:
Okay, that's all I have for you today! Be sure to swing by the CTD gals' blogs and give them some love. THEY are sure to inspire you...I'm thinking I'll have a do-over later this week!
