and hope you've had a lovely week -
You know when you have an occasion to congratulate someone, tell them you are thinking of them, perhaps someone needs a bit of a bolstering up or encouragement, is perhaps not feeling too well - well of course as a Stampin' Up demonstrator what better way to say it than with a card.... !
and this week I opted to take up the current challenge over at the Global Design project site
where for no. #69, we have a Colour Challenge and so used this as inspiration to get me thinking.
yep - we had Delightful Dijon, silver and a colour of your choice., to play with.!
Now hands up - who numbers Delightful Dijon as one of their favourite, go to colours.?
Well I for one, must admit to being very colour challenged with this - so had a real tussle on my hands, but finally decided to pair it with, of all things, Mint Macaron and was really pleased how it turned out.. and I did indeed make a card!
I used the lovely Shimmery white card stock for my topper- as this takes water colouring beautifully. I divided the card into 3rds and with a bit of masking/sponging, stamping, aqua-painting later - finally came up with this.
Originally i just had the 'Amazing You' as the only sentiment and although I had it popped up on Stampin' dimesionals still thought it needed something more - so added 'Celebrate...' as an after thought but think it works.
what do you all think? Hopefully the recipient liked it and felt a bit more like her old self.!
