Hello, friends! I’m just popping in very quickly to share this “Be Yourself” card that I made for this week’s Dynamic Duos #68 and Mojo Monday #309. I’m slipping in just under the wire with the Dynamic Duos card; the contest ends today at noon PST. But it was a fun color theme this week: Perfect Plum plus your choice of colors. And the Mojo Monday sketch is always a delight to work with. Here’s what I had to work with:
And here’s what I did with it:
I changed the Mojo sketch up just a little, using a square image in the center and running my fishtail banner along the bottom. These images are all from Graphic 45’s A Place in Time Collection, which I love for its versatility.
As you can see, I chose to pair my Perfect Plum with Always Artichoke. I love purples and greens together. The sentiment is from a Fiskars stamp set. The distressed font goes really well with these images.
I added a few Diamond Stickles to glam it up, as well as a couple of little fishtail banners and flags. The shabby bow was died with Milled Lavendar, Antique Linen and Peeled paint distress ink. The stick pins are from Petaloo. And that’s it for me today, folks! Thanks for taking the time to stop by the blog. If you have any questions about today’s card, just ask. I’m always more than happy to help. And thanks for your lovely comments. They make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers! Until next time….
