It's Your Day...Smile!

Sunday, January 12, 2014

I saw a pretty color palette today over at Designs by Dragonfly, and used it to make a birthday card for a friend.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch (#327) for the card layout, and used a mix of stamps and dies from several different companies.
On the inside, I used a Sizzix diffuser when I embossed the white panel, to keep the center flat. Also, the yellow ink that I sponged inside the oval isn't nearly as vivid IRL as it is in the photo, but for the life of me, I couldn't get it toned down in the pic!

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday #327
Simon Says Monday Challenge: Blues
613 Avenue Create: Anything Goes/Optional Theme: Party/Celebrate
Challenges 4 Everybody #37: Anything Goes

A very feminine and beautiful card. I like how you did the embossed BG with the die cut too. I also forgot to say on your last card that I really like how you do your interiors too. This one is extra nice too!!

Beautiful! I've always loved blue and yellow together -- any shades. This is such a pretty card design and all your different elements come together perfectly. I'm really loving this and I know the recipient will, too!
