Good Thoughts

Hi there!  A couple challenges drew me in to create today's card - the sketch at Mojo Monday and the beautiful color challenge of Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party at Splitcoaststampers.  Because the sketch is Tall & Skinny this week, my card measures 3.5" x 5.5".

Between the time when I first saw the color challenge on Tuesday and when I went to create my card last night, I somehow had the idea the green was supposed to be Old Olive and the blue Soft Sky.  When I went to bring over the image above I was so surprised.  The nice thing about the weekly color challenge at Splitcoast is that you can use similar colors to the ones in the challenge, so here's what I ended up with.  ; - )

The Soft Sky panel was run through the Big Shot with the new Spring Flowers embossing folder, then a piece of designer paper layered over it horizontally.  I decided to make the small panel in the sketch a tag, topping it with ribbon and twine and tilting it slightly.

The fern image was inked up in Old Olive, then stamped off once before stamping on the tag off the edges, leaving room for the sentiment.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  I've love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.  Be sure to use the links above to check out all the wonderful inspiration!
