CTD35


Good Afternoon! I finally got around to doing a challenge, the color throw down to use SU colors purely pomegranate, kiwi kiss and tangerine tango. Well, my normal method of operation is to select an image, color it, then find the right designer paper to flow with the colors and image. This leads to one "goofy" stamper, because I can never get colors to match correctly. So, this time I used the SCS sketch challenge layout from yesterday, then found DP to match the card stock and finally picked out a couple of stamps to complete the card. I haven't used eyelets in ages, so I used them here, although the green is an exact match IRL, just not in the picture???
I'm not thrilled with this card, something is just off. But it does remind me of the Robins that have arrived and the Spring flowers to come within the next month or so. It's so good to be rid of winter!

What a wonderfully bright and sweet card, Carol. I have so many eyelets but always forget to use them. Thanks for the reminder!
