So, this card is a little more simple than my usual style. There's not much beyond the big bouquet but I thought the colors and depth of the bouquet was enough to carry the design. Although from a couple weeks ago, I really liked the colors of the Global Design Project color challenge #121 so that was my inspiration for the florals. The stems are cut from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the flowers are all stamped on thick Whisper White in Bermuda Bay, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum. A Crumb Cake base is a good neutral to balance all those colors and I think it adds a rustic charm that goes well with the wildflower look of the bouquet. Of course, Linen Thread is the perfect finishing touch of rustic charm!
No time to stamp the inside this week and I'm prepping for another tournament this weekend. The weekend keeps me busy as I've ended up in the role of team photographer. Watching the action through the lens helps keep my mama bear tendencies in check and helps me keep calm--I'm sure all you sports moms, dads, and grandparents can relate! Here's a shot of our daughter at the net from last weekend's tournament in Jacksonville. Proud mama! :-)
I hope you've enjoyed my card today and feel inspired to play along with my sketch at The Paper Players. I'm sure the fabulous work of my teammates will get you even more fired up! Just be sure to play along before the challenge closes on Friday, February 2nd at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by!
