I went to Barnes and Noble Friday (what a surprise...not). Anyway, while waiting for my dark cherry mocha, I saw this coffee cup. It called to me. It said, "Susan, you must buy me, take me home, and use me to make some cards."
Really. I tried desperately not to fall victim to its siren's song. You see, I've been ranting recently about how we have TOO MUCH STUFF in our house and need to get rid of stuff. We have lots of coffee cups. We don't need another. But this darn butterfly cup kept calling and calling and calling to me. It wouldn't shut up. For such a pretty thing, it sure is noisy.
The first card I made was dreadfully busy, just like the cup. And then, simplicity took over and I made this.
Be still, my heart! Amazing! I had to do it again, only experimenting a bit with different leaves.
This color combination is DA BOMB. I used Baby Blue VersaColor ink, Tea Leaves VersaMagic, and SU's rich razzleberry cardstock. The punch is Martha's large monarch double punch.
Martha doesn't know we're on a first-name basis.
But I do.
The sky isn't blue in my world. It's rich razzleberry.
