Things have been crazy around here, so the few cards I have managed to make still haven't been blogged yet. Eek!! I got super-inspired by the Winnie & Walter Color Combo Challenge for July. You might already know that color challenges are my favorite kind of challenge and W&W has one each month. Yay!! So much fun.
Take a look at the fabulous inspiration photo and color palette that Heather H. chose for this month....YUM!!!:
My Dad's 94th birthday was last week so I used these colors for his card that I sent him along with some home-baked cookies.....which he loved. (He didn't mention the card....lol....)
|I do lots of layering of backgrounds on my cards and find that the "middles" of the panels are often covered up and "wasted". The tag on this card is cut from one of these hidden lower layers.|
Aren't the little birdies in the W&W So Tweet set the most adorable things? I couldn't resist placing a sweet envelope in this one's beak. Now the little guy is ready to wing his way over to my Dad with my love.
Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set
Winnie & Walter - LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
DCWV burlap, cardstock, and scraps
Distress Inks for coloring
Baker's Twine from a recent W&W package <3
Thank you for stopping by today. I know I am rather hit and miss on my blog posting in the last couple months. I am so glad for the W&W challenges that give me a great excuse to play in my craft room even when so many other crazy things are happening in my life!! I hope you will join in the fun and play along, too!
