Good morning everyone! I can hardly believe it's already the end of January. Spring is right around the corner! I already see forsythia bushes in bloom around the neighborhoods and the jonquils are poking their heads up as well!
The card I have today gave me a bit of trouble. I had the image all colored and I liked it, but I couldn't figure out what to do with it. This is the reason I should pick out a sketch and papers before hand, but I usually just color and image and then make a card. Anyway, after much looking through all of my papers I finally picked out this purple paper with little different colored flowers on it and went from there. I figured the purple went with the color I used for the chair, and it had little yellow flowers that would go with the color I made the background wall, and my scallop rectangle has pink that goes with the pink flowers. The green I used for her shoes doesn't really go with the green in the paper, but oh well!
So then I went to emboss the bottom of the card and much to my dismay I had the folder backwards and the swiss dots were debossed instead! So I had to change my plan and make the embossed dots on top! Once I had the whole card made I had to come up with a sentiment of some kind. This kid really looks comfortable enjoying a good book, so I printed out "Enjoy Your Day" in a purple color in a font called Batik Regular. I sponged around the edges and mounted it on pop dots. Now that it's all finished I'm rather pleased with it! Looking at it now you'd never know the trouble it gave me would you?
Have you received your squigglefly newsletter? I am so excited to see that they are going to have a Divine Bovine card contest. Those images are just so funny to me; I can't wait to see what gets submitted!
Well, enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
