I want to get back to a card I made a while back with Summer Silhouettes, the SU set that Phyllis kindly sent to me. This simple layout is VERY appealing and can either have huge dramatic impact (think colored card base/white panel, or bright colored panel with white embossing on a white card) or it can be deliciously CAS with white on white and a happy color combo!
Guess which way I went?
Not hard, eh?
I used a wonderful khaki-ish color from VersaColor and a purple...what a neat combination! The flower still looked a bit flat, though, so I pulled out my Sakura Stardust purple pen and went to town.
Notice how I only added the sparkle to the x-shaped flowers, not the dots, which creates a bit of a dimensional effect and gives the whole thing that little something extra.
And I just have to share a funny story with you. I was taking the tags off new bras yesterday, and my younger son Jack walked in. His face lit up, and he said, "Boobies! Did you buy new boobies, Mom?"
I nearly died trying not to laugh.
