i rarely blog in the evenings, the main reason being it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to get a great photo in my house after dusk... but i've got an early start in the morning, and city crafter wraps up tomorrow evening; and since i am totally in ♥LOVE♥ with both linda's sketch and the DT's inspiration pieces, it's now or never. so here's my card:
(patterned paper: pink paislee, cosmo cricket, prima; alphas: basic grey; brad: american crafts; border punches: recollections; other: doily, scrap of magnolia giftwrap, magnolia blossoms off a silk flower stem; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
if you cruise over to CCCB to see the DT samples, you'll notice that i totally "lifted" almost all the elements of my card from one or another of the gals, there were just sooooooo many brilliant ideas on display. i've gone a bit more minimal (for me!!!) and worked in as much white as possible since this card is for my aunt and her husband, and this is their sort of "vibe".
the other colors are from the gorgeous spring-like palette at CR84FN, #54 to be exact; though i've reversed the proportions a bit and used more blue than green:
i was excited because as soon as i saw it, i remembered that i had that little scrap of magnolia giftwrap, and i knew it would be PERFECT for this, and also that my aunt would love it!
and now i just need to link this baby up then find an envelope... good night, darlings! ♥
