At first I had a hard time with this color challenge from Colour Q. I just saw the Always Artichoke and the Cherry Cobbler and had a hard time getting past the Christmas colors. I am really pleased. In fact, I found out yesterday that my daughter would be moving up classes at her day care and decided to use this card for her teacher to say Thank You. I wrote the card and sealed it in an envelope then realized that I forgot to take a picture of it for my blog…oops. So I ripped open the envelope, took a picture, and put it in a new envelope. 🙂
I used the masculine Seize the Birthday sketch for the layout. The Operation Write Home midweek challenge this week was to use the colors of your state flag. Being from Texas, anytime I use red, white, and blue it looks like a 4th of July card to me. So I used red and blue but went with a deeper red, cherry cobler, and darker blue, night of navy. I think it turned out better than I thought it would, and I don’t think it looks like a 4th of July card at all.
