I've wanted to play along from the day she posted a week ago, but life gets in the way. With the husband recovering from surgery, the teenager not getting his driver's license until next week and with the auditors in at work - it's been a very long couple of week. I give you this sob story because I only had a half hour window to make this card and it's extremely rare that I can make a card in half an hour. First of all, it takes that much time just to find the stamps and dies!! Second, I'm a brute force cardmaker, I'm not a visualizer. I just keep experimenting - - - what about this pattern? what about that color? what about a different placement? Even with the inspiration, I ran out of time on this one! Don't get me wrong - it's going to be perfect for my husband for Valentine's Day, but it does not do justice to the inspiration!
I was inspired by Shona with this card that Kara pinned on week 289. This is Shona's card. It is truly lovely with a floral background and a soft blue "hello".
I followed her inspiration exactly except I made it masculine.
