how excited am I that I got to play along with the Mojo Monday sketch ON Monday :) I guess sometimes it does pay to be a slacker and forget to post a Monday blog post! I used this week's Color Throwdown 113 colors too (and just in the knick of time) but I did alter the combo a *slight* bit. The challenge calls for Early Espresso this week and while I do have that color I *really* wanted to use this adorable polka dot ribbon-which happens to be Chocolate Chip....so I swapped it out. I still love the combo...even if it's with the lighter brown. Now that I look at the completed card I think I would ahve preferred it if I embossed the perfect plum but what's done is done....that's what happened when the little man wakes up super early from his (very short) nap *sigh* I used one of the SU self adhesive rhinestones for the flower center but I wanted it to "go" a little better with my card so I colored it using the same copic marker that I colored this little cutie's shirt with. It's super subtle but it's a "just enough" touch :)
Materials used: magnolia stamp (sorry I don't remember which one!); chocolate chip, perfect plum cs (SU); vintage cream (PTI); tuxedo black (memento); fresh snow ink (PTI); copics; choc chip brads (SU); polka dot ribbon (american crafts); nestabilities; rhinestones (SU)
I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! We enjoyed the spectacular weather by going to the farm down the street and picking our pumpkins! Elizabeth had a blast picking just the right one....and wouldn't you know turns out just the right one happens to be just the right 5....all in varying sizes of course. Then the in laws were kind enough to watch the kids so the hubby and I could have a date night :) We went to a fabulous bistro and then went to see The Social Network. It was a really great movie and interesting to learn about the roots of Facebook-a site that I am on *way* too often!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you have a wonderful day :)
