Happy Colors

Have any of you noticed that Memento markers have more intense color than the pads? This card is living proof of that. Colored with markers, the card has fun, bold colors that pop right off all that white.

Lady bug, rose bud, lilac posies, and tangelo are the marker colors. All give much more intense color than the pads ever yield. Normally this annoys me because I prefer them to match. But in this case, the intensity works in my favor, so YAY!

What I love about this layout is how everything is so centered and perfect...yet the sentiment throws a pleasingly asymmetrical monkey-wrench into the mix. Curves and points, long and short, round and rectangular. Fun tension is going on here.

The orange enamel dot subtly reinforces the focal point of the orange petal. And orange is such a happy color!

Happy Hump Day!

  1. I like the sentiment on the petal. Your bold colors are beautiful.

  2. Love the bright pretty colours ♥

  3. Love the monkey wrench! If only I could get my husband to understand that concept. He frequently tries to decorate, like bringing home pumpkins for the steps. Great idea, but then he sets them out in ways that I find PAINFULLY symmetrical. I have set up some sort of vignette at the door for Christmas, and come home from work to find that he had rearranged it! Ack!

    1. You can not put 2 pumpkins on either side of the door. You shouldn't even be allowed to buy 4 pumpkins unless one of them is for cooking, IMO! 3 or 5 would be soooo much better.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
