Hi again back with post #2 for today ... this time with a challenge card. I got the basic card done earlier this evening between Jeopardy and The Closer. I had originally thought about using another distressed paper flower, but while I was watching The Closer tonight, I thought about using ribbon to make a flower instead. There are lots of ways to do this, but I wanted a not-so-complicated way so I could finish this card up and get to bed! Despite being off for the summer, I do actually have to get up a decent time because of a staff development workshop tomorrow.
Anyway, I made this card using the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch #31. I love 4-1/4" square cards so playing along was a no brainer! :-) I also wanted to incorporate the Scrapmaster's Paradise color combo to multitask on my challenge blog to-do list this week. Samantha picked out SU! Summer Sun, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay. Well, shucks! I don't have Bermuda Bay yet, so I went with a pastel version of the combination using PTI Lemon Tart, Ripe Avocado and Aqua Mist. Close as I'm going to get this week!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope your week is off to a great start :-)
