As a "happy happenstance," I made a card that fits two challenges. I've been looking at W Plus 9's Monday Mood Board for a few days. Rather than try to explain the colors, I'll show you in a minute. But as an aside, you need to know that when I was about 12, my mom told me that she loved me in grays. That's obviously stuck with me for oh, a 'few' years. And one year for Easter, she made me a yellow, A-line, sleeveless, cotton dress, with a border of white daisies at the hem. I LOVED that dress. Funny what we remember, isn't it? Anyway...the MMB rekindled memories and that's always a good thing!
See why I fell in love with it? This board is amazing!!!
And then this morning, Fusion's new challenge came up. Talk about a 'happy happenstance!!' See...
What divine inspiration! You've just got to love this! However, other than the double horizontal stripes going across the it, that's as close as I could get to the sketch for this card. Sticking with the left side for now...who knows, maybe I'll be back with more of a combo. And without further ado:
Other than the Neenah white base, I raided my scrap box for all other papers, including those textured gold strips at the bottom. The sentiment and flowers are from one of my all-time favorite sets, Fresh Cut Florals by W Plus 9. Inks are from SU (yellow), MME (stone), and Stampabilities (gold). An SU lable punch, inked with a little more gold. Hit my sewing box for the gold thread. Made a little 'nest,' which is so trendy right now. Usually I'm not much of a trend follower, though, I'll admit that there've been a few that I've liked. And that's all I've got for today. Time for me to get some work done, and then if I have time, more cards! Happy dances everyone!
