Hello, friend. Isn’t that just the sweetest sentiment! This card seems particularly appropriate as we have been trying to plant lots of pots up this year to add colour to our garden. I used the colours from this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge. No surprise that I love lime, so it was pretty much a given that I would make a card for these colours:
I inked up the flower pot in smokey shadow and then kissed a polka dot stamp to the body of the pot. I think it gives the pot a weather look – just like my pots!
I also kept in mind the CAS116 challenge on Splitcoast to use the “artists rule of 3”. Now when you first look at my card you will be thinking there isn’t 3 of anything there – just one flower! However, I used 3 colours (red, lime and grey) and used 3 elements of the strongest colour (red) in the scalloped border, flower and button.
So did you watch the Royal Wedding – don’t they make a cute couple!
