For You

So I had a few minutes this afternoon to play with a colour combination from Summer Card Camp (while the rest of the family was napping!).  On Friday Jennifer and Kristina offered up a number of colour combos and I went with the second combination as I desperately wanted to colour a rose in yellow.

Paper: PTI cardstock; Patterned paper and yellow cardstock (DCWV); Neenah
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers; Antique Linen Distress Ink
Stamps: PTI (Year of Flowers Collection)
Other: Classic Oval Large Nestabilities (Spellbinders); EK Succes scalloped edge punch; Pearls (HA)

I really enjoyed this fresh colour combination.  And I thouroughly loved colouring that rose.  I was worried that these smaller images in the collection would be tough to colour but I was pleasantly surprised.

As you can see I did not do much to the card, I wanted the rose and the blue patterned paper to stand out.  I toyed a bit with yellow ribbon versus a scalloped edge, paper won in the end! I would have liked to add some stickles here and there on the rose but seeing as this card will most likely go into my OWH pile I had to forego the urge!

I hope you are all having a really pleasant Saturday afternoon.  I am waiting for the heat to go down a  bit as I really would love to take the family for a walk in this lovely park about 5 minutes away, it has a wonderful 2 mile walkway around a lovely lake (man-made unfortunately, we are talking about Houston, but sometimes we just have to look at beauty in a different way, or with different eyes).

Maybe see you again tomorrow!

Brenda, you are so funny re: the man-made lake! I'm glad you enjoyed the walk with your family. That's what's most important. I love the idea of a yellow rose and I love the papers you paired it with!
