Happy midweek fellow Maggie friends! I have decided to play along in another Color Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The lovely and talented Norma has chosen Blue & Brown for this challenge. I very rarely, if ever, color with blues, so my Copic colors are limited, and I agree, I still need a lot of practicing to improve my Copic coloring skills LOL! Anyway, here is what I came up with:
My card base is my usual 5.5" x 5.5" and I used SU! chocolate chip, followed by baja blue. All of the DPs are from the Kaiser Craft 6"x6" "Le Chateau Collection" pad. I really liked the print with this "Friendship" sentiment and decided to "offset" it so I wouldn't cover the pretty DP. I die-cut the flourish from SU! kraft CS and used Cheery Lynn's Tropical Flourish die. The little "Love" sentiment is also from this paper pack, and placed on a Memory Box "Ringed Buckle" die-cut, and I added a hemp bow with a little blue flower. The huge flower at the top I made myself with Maya pleated brown ribbon and topped it with a blue rose from WOC. I wanted to mimic the ruffled peony flower. Both Tilda and Love sentiment are mounted on foam tape for dimension.
This is what the inside of the card looks like. I kept it flat and simple. The sentiment you see at the top is from a talented and sweet friend from Idaho (you know who you are...and thank you very much!). I die-cut it using my SB Labels 18 and distressed both layers with DIs. The jotting panel again is very plain for easy mailing.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, and for all the encouraging comments I have received. I appreciate them very much.
Enjoy the rest of the week, and have a wonderful weekend doing what you love.
Warm Aloha Hugs,
