I think I had a revelation just a bit ago. When the mojo is alluding me, it's time for an obvious case! I may not have been creating for the last few weeks, but I've sure been eyeing some cards all over the blogosphere. This one, by Dawn McVey, had a color combo that completely caught my eye. I had to try!
Also enter the trusty sketch challenge... And this one is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch. That darn flower embellishment in the corner sure gave me a good work over. I made about four different flowers and didn't like a singe one of them! Another revelation. When in doubt, use a button! I love this little rounded square button I found in my Berry Sorbet stash. So perfect for some of my rounded corners!
I stamped the verse in Going Gray and then rock-n-rolled some Berry Sorbet onto the edges. The polka dots are stamped in Vintage Cream ink. This is one of those cards I wish you could see in person. A picture just doesn't do it justice. :)
It's a glorious three-day weekend for me (and many others!). The weather is supposed to be great as well. Maybe a trip to the beach or some outdoor activity is in order. I definitely plan to spend some quality time sitting outside and reading. There's some shopping to be done this weekend as well for my sister's bridal shower that I'm hosting/throwing next weekend. No rest for the wear, eh?! But I'm so excited to see my sister! I pick her up on next Friday evening at the airport. :)
Happy Memorial Weekend to my US friends! Thanks for stopping by!
