Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #19
This is my submission for Dawn's latest color challenge! This is a busy time of year for birthday cards around here so it helps me to participate in these challenges to get color/sketch ideas! Plus... it is just fun, right? What is it about challenges? Is it that competitive nature in all of us coming out that makes us want to compete for the win? :) Or do people REALLY do it just because they want to play!?!? :) I think it is because we all want to make something that someone else likes! So... when your cards don't get picked for that challenge or that publication ... why do we keep doing it? Torture? ha...
Sorry for the ramble... have been in deep thought lately about a lot of things! :) And.... I... am one to talk about it... not just keep it inside and put on a pretty front! :) You all know I am crazy by now anyway.... right? :)
Back to the card.... Usually I am trying to think of the very best idea that I can possibly think of and make that card! This time... I just pulled out one of my Unity stamp sets and did my best to make it work. I think it turned out pretty! The picture doesn't do the colors, rhinestones, and stickles justice but... that is how it goes when you don't have a light tent or know how to work your camera! :)
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far! I had a baby shower to attend this morning and then we had Thanksgiving with Michael's side of the family this afternoon. So... I am going to spend the rest of the night taking care of things around the house! Until bedtime that is and I am sure I will be right back here.... visiting with you all! :)
Peace and Love!
