Happy Humpday! I hope your week is going as well as mine is. School started on Monday, and because my daughter is a pretty good teenager, we've already gotten into our daily routine without any trouble at all. What a year it has been for us, and I'm thankful that things continue to get better.
So, I created this card, just for fun. I wanted to try a couple things, and I wanted to use colors that I probably never would have combined, had I not been challenged by them. This is definitely out of my comfort zone, but it's growing on me. Here's my card.
This is my very first attempt at a one layer card. I think the butterflies might disqualify me from being a true one layer, but it needed something. Everything else is stamped on the main panel of my card. I used a stencil/mask from one of my Simon Says Stamp card kits, and think the added design works well enough. I stamped my sentiment in the masked center panel, and then I stamped the flourish on the side. I liked how it seemed to appear layered with all of the elements, but it was still in need of something. That's when I added the butterflies. In all, I like my card, even though I don't know if I'd use these colors together again. I can't lie though, it is pretty bright and bold, and cheerful. :)
I've combined the following challenge in my card today:
Card Crafters Circle #88 - Winged Things
Stampin for the Weekend - Butterflies
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #224 - Lime, Berry & Eggplant
The Paper Players #159 - One Layer Card (this was my first attempt, not sure I pulled it off though)
Pile It On #33 - No Designer Paper
I hope you have a great rest of the week. I hope to be back soon, with another crafty project. It's going to be a busy weekend though, as we've got our last trip planned for this weekend. Guess we'll see what happens.
Have a wonderful day!
