In preparation for seeing a recently engaged friend, I wanted to make a little Congratulations type card so I pulled up this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #177 and the Color Dare 96, which was Bashful Peachy Greens. My only issue was that I didn't have Peach Parfait, so I substitued what I could only guess to be my closest color - the old In Color - Groovy Guava. I couldn't find a button that suited the middle of my flower to make it pop, so black it was. As an added bonus, I was able to ink up some 'as yet unloved' stamps from the Verve Dream Big set, which I love but wish had dies for the flowers & leaves since I'm lazy!
I even tried two backgrounds to see which photographed better....I think I prefer the black background. Which do you think is the better background?
Thursday I was hoping to get around to making this card, but our trip to the local ski hill for a Discover Snowboarding lesson turned out to be far more fun that I'd imagined and we stayed for a few extra runs before they closed. I was on my butt far less than I'd expected from everything I'd been told (and while I would NEVER say that I'm good, I think I held my own for a newbie!) Now I want to get to the mountains so we can actually go down a hill that will take more than 20 seconds.
