Today when I was cardmaking my sweet niece woke up from her nap and begged me to make a card for Gramee. She really wanted to make a birthday card but Gramee’s birthday was in January and there was no way she would be able to keep it hidden until next January. We then had to have the same discussion about a Valentine’s card. So we finally agreed on a ‘love you’ card. She picked out everything on this card…EVERYTHING! Looks like I’ve got another papercrafter in the family. She literally finished writing her name, walked out of my crafting area, and gave it to Gramee…se there was no way she was keeping it until next January!
I changed the card quite a bit. I like the sketch from Operation Write Home #159, but I don’t have a 2 1/2 in circle punch and was totally fixated on the size. Maybe I need to order one in my next order. I also made the banner an inch wide instead of 1/2 inch. I used my color coach to select the colors. I went with pretty in pink, certainly celery, and bashful blue.
I made today’s card for the CAS[E] this sketch #13 sketch challenge. I use the color coach to select the colors. I love this color combo and am really pleased with how this card turned out!
