(c) Two Peas in a Bucket

NOTE: Just a note on what is coming to my blog soon. I’ll be posting the latest Color Inspiration Round-Up tomorrow morning + a new color challenge. Then on Sunday, I’ll have a new Virtual Card Club for ya! :)

Hi all! This week’s card uses papers from Imaginisce (To Love & Cherish) and Anna Griffin (Isabelle – pattern 1 & pattern 2). I thought the black and white papers would go so well with the bright greens and yellow-greens. Yummy!

Anyhow, I kept it pretty simple, and you’ll see in the video that I started out using a stamp for the background of the card, but later decided not to. The initial sketch I used for this card had a stamp in the background, but I discovered I wasn’t liking it, so I went a different direction. Don’t be afraid to veer off course of your a “sketch” cardmaker. Trust your instinct and work at it until you like what you see. :)

Create a card using black, white, and one other color (or two closely related colors like I did here). Upload your card to the gallery and it will appear on this week’s Finally Friday page under the Video Challenge Submissions Tab.
