I had just ordered these scribble dies with a leaf that was big enough for the banner. And I had the big sentiment in my not-yet-used stash. It was meant to be!! I did struggle a bit with the flower center. Sometimes it amuses me what part of a card gives me trouble - and how long I can obsess over it. There's actually a scribble die to go on the center too - so I tried the same coral colors, then I reversed them, I tried black and white, then just black and just white, I tried brown, I tried brown with dots of sparkle - my desk was littered with flower centers and the scribble part. I waste so much paper because I cannot visualize; I have to see it. At this point, I can't remember where the idea for copper came from. Even with that, after I had it there, I walked away from my desk for awhile but glanced every time I walked by and it seemed good. I'm actually liking it better as I'm looking at the picture.
I hope to see you playing along this week and if you have any flower centers, may you obsess less than I did!

This is such a great card Kim! I just love that flower and the big sentiment! The colours are so pretty and I love your creative take on the sketch!!!ReplyDelete
My desk may look like yours - I often cut things out in 3 or 4 colors! I have to see things together! Luckily my granddaughter shows up and uses those bits and pieces! I love the colors you ended up with and the diecuts are sweet!ReplyDelete
These dies are just perfect for the sketch! I love this. Funny what happens when we look at things too long...I think this is just wonderful!ReplyDelete
What a delightful card, Kim! I love so much this sweet color combination and how you created the sentiment using both negative and positive die-cutting.ReplyDelete
