Hey, welcome to the weekend! We finally have some normal temperatures here in northern Illinois. The current temp is 78 degrees...at noon! It's so refreshing :)
Anyway, I'm sharing a card that I've created using the beautiful colors over at the CR84FN Color Challenge - #59.
I love the inspiration photos, but coral isn't a color I use very often. Not sure why. But, I was so drawn to these photos that I just had to give it a try. Oh boy. It proved to be QUITE a challenge for me. I struggled to decide which colors to use on the various parts of this card. It took me most of the evening to complete this card. Does that ever happen to you?
This is final result.
I'm so glad that I didn't give up. Because, I'm thrilled with the results! This turned out to be one of those cards that I keep looking at, every time I walk past it. And each time I do...it makes me smile.
I used several dies for this card (the frame, the sentiment panel and one of the roses). The die cut rose is popped up on dimensionals, then I added a few drops of platinum liquid pearls. I even pulled out my Versamark frost ink pad, to add a few subtle roses in the background.
Thanks so much for taking a look! I'll list my supplies below.
