FYI Challenge #34


It's been an interesting week, after being on vacation, and I'm glad it's almost over.  I almost feel like I need another week to catch up. lol 

I'm excited to bring you another FYI project.  For all of the details, click HERE.

I LOVE this photo!  The colors are gorgeous together, and I think the light and dark contrast are super fantastic.  It reminds me of an enchanted forest, although, I don't think I've ever really seen one on TV or anything. lol  Here is what I came up with for my card today.

Yep, those distress inks, love them.  I can't help but use them every chance I get.  I kept my card simple, as I didn't want to interfere with the background I created.  I love the way the red looks on the orange.  The pop of dark brown from the bow was just the right touch to include some contrast, like in the photo.  I needed a thank you for someone, and this is definitley going to do the trick.  I hope she likes it.

My Lovely Lotuses have posted some fabulous projects, as always.  I do hope you'll head over to check them out.  Maybe you'll get the chance to play along with us too!

Excellent sponging!! Beautiful card!


A beautiful card Steph - isn't it great to get inky once in a while! Love the background and the text - this is a great take on the photo.
Also love the Orange Fluff recipe (above) - must try that out - it sounds yummy!.
Have a happy weekend - Sylvia x
