Today was a lazy, rainy day and I was anxious to get in my stamp room. But after running a few errands this morning, I found myself puttering around the house doing some cleaning so I didn't have a chance to be creative until late this afternoon.
I thought the Color Throwdown challenge this week was a little unusual for this time of year, but it's got all sorts of colors that I love so started my card there. I don't have any Summer Sun so I substituted Crushed Curry, which is pretty close. I even substituted Daffodil Delight for the little flower buttons. In real life these are so close it's hard to tell they're not the same color!
Then I checked out the sketch at Clean&Simple and thought it was pretty unusual so I wanted to give it a try.
I almost ran into a snag right away. My card is 4 1/4-inches square and I didn't have a scallop Nestie big enough to create that partial circle. Then I had an a-ha moment. (It was actually more like a "duh" moment). For Christmas I got an electronic cutter that I had been dreaming about for at least a year. I've been experimenting with it, but I hadn't used it in a few weeks and actually sort of forgot about it. Thank goodness I remembered it, because the great thing about it is that you can take any shape and make it whatever size you want! So I just used a scallop circle and made it big enough fit my card!
Thanks for stopping by!
