The inspiration was this week's CASology Cue Card.
The idea was simply a kite with a beautiful saying from Our Daily Bread Designs:
Your love O Lord
Reaches to the heavens
And Your faithfulness
to the skies.
This morning it dawned on me that I was going too "expected" with my colors...using blues for the "sky". It's not horrible but it doesn't do justice to the beautiful saying. The kite looked plain - I tried gems and buttons and bows...but nothing worked.
I've recently had blog friends use black as the ocean, and another did a purple sun, and another used a red background to a winter tree (obviously you should go blue or lavender with snowflakes!!??) Unexpected touches that really made the cards. So I went hunting for a color combo that I liked and landed on the second Fab Friday challenge.
What an elegant color combo! And I was thrilled to play along because I also played along with their VERY first challenge two weeks ago! So here's what happens when I put a gray, tan and yellow kite in the sky. It added the elegance and uniqueness that I was missing.
