I'm running late so I'll have to post details later... here is my take on the sketch for today's Diva Challenge! Be sure to check out the Diva blog for many more cards using this sketch!
I hope you play along too! Thanks for stopping by!
OK, I'm back with some details. First off I want to mention that my color scheme came from the Tuesday Color Challenge on Splitcoast. At first I wondered how on earth I could make these colors happy and fun as opposed to Christmasy or too dark (Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Black and either white or vanilla). Well, I quickly realized these colors are fabulous together and red and green do NOT have to be always associated with Christmas!!!
I've kind of had something like this in mind, with the die cut daisies lining both edges of a sentiment panel- glad I finally got to put my vision to the test. I love that part of it, but I think in trying to keep with the sketch I ruined it. Well, ruined might be a strong word, but I was just thrilled with this until I added that circle on top of the last daisy. The image goes well with the die cut daisies though. What do you think? If I had been able to make it smaller I think it would work better for me. Maybe!?
Do you know how it feels to have a card that you think is really good then you go and add that last detail and it goes from great to "oh crud" in a hurry?! It did take me quite a while to get those flowers just the way I wanted so I couldn't redo it yesterday, but I just might... we'll see. Whenever I say that some other idea comes to mind and I move on.
Anyway, be sure to check out all the other Diva's and their wonderful creations! Then don't forget to play along and link to the Diva blog so we can all come visit you! Thanks for stopping by!
