Hello friends! Got my LIM cards done early, again... YAY! And for good reason... today is an absolutely sparkling gorgeous day here in my corner of the world. It is days like today that remind me why I love the Puget Sound area of Washington state so much. The sky is brilliant blue, the mountains brilliantly white against the sky and a nice breeze is blowing to keep things cool! Fabulous! Anywhoo... I do have some cards to share, lol!!
The LIM challenge this week is a color challenge and Chrissie and Jen have asked us to use colors on the opposite sides of the color wheel. I decided to go with blue/orange and yellow/purple. The first card is my favorite although it didn't start out that way. I recently purchased the MFT/Liana Lane Designs Border It - Mod Borders set. I thought it would be good for making masculine cards. When I first started making this card I used a different border image and didn't really like how it looked with the "happy birthday" sentiment I was using (also a MFT set). So I switch that border image for the one you see and I love how the card turned out. A few sequins were added to make the card a bit more girly... seriously what guy would want a purple and yellow birthday card?
The second card was made using the PTI set Irresistibly Ikat and is definitely more masculine that the first card. For this card I used the blue and order combo. When I first stamped the diamond shaped images they didn't have anything in the center and the card looked a bit plain. So I decided to add the little center dots and it changed the look of the card immediately!
Thanks for stopping by...
