Well, this weeks’ Mojo Monday sketch challenge was such a great sketch – thanks to the great designers on the Mojo Monday design team!
I had so many ideas in my head; ideas for Halloween, for Christmas, for a birthday. But when I sat down to make a card for my entry, I had a particular color scheme that I knew I wanted to use (Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple). That made me decide to use two specialty papers: Natural Composition Specialty paper and the Core’dinations Paper. If you don’t already have these two specialty papers; you NEED to get them! They are so much fun to work with and have such versatility. Together they make a neutral color combination that can be used with any other color colors.
That led me on the path of wanting to use my Early Espresso heat embossing powder, and it just led me to the Pleasant Poppies stamp set. That always happens to me; I start with something in mind and wind up on a different path but I’ve learned to ‘go with the flow’ and I’m never disappointed with where I end up!
So what do you think? I LOVE this color combination! I also LOVE the little dahlias – they are so cute and so super easy to use. I think I am going to make another card just like this and use my blender pen to color in the poppies in Primrose Petals & Raspberry Ripple. That will help with the continuity of color throughout the card.
Would you do anything different if you were making this card?
