"If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow, but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much."
Here with a quick card I made after Little Peach was in bed tonight. I couldn't resist the delicious colors that were in the MFP Friends of Speedy TV challenge - turquoise and orange. Yummy!!
I love emboss resist, but for some reason I usually reach for patterned paper, instead. (Might have something to do with the countless stacks of it I have!! Ha!) Tonight, I was inspired by the lovely background that Janine Brain made in her sample card and decided to do a simple embossed floral background.
I wish I could say I masked the Thank You banner, but it is a piece of cardstock. I purposely did not put it up on foam or mount it on a contrasting color so it would blend into the background. I love that in the photo it looks masked. It doesn't blend quite that well in real life, but it is close. I like that effect.
Supplies I used include: Serendipity flower stamp, Distress Ink - Broken China, Prima flowers, Coredinations orange cardstock, and misc stash items: rhinestone, TY stamp, etc.
