Birthday for RS37 and CTD217

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I fell in love with the color challenge at The Color Throwdown this week as soon as I saw it.  There's just something about Lucky Limeade and Night of Navy together that say "wow" to me.  I finally had some time to make a card for the challenge and I paired it with the sketch at retro sketches.

This is actually the second iteration of this card.  The first one had monsters on it and I just wasn't happy with it.  So I took a little break and stepped away from my desk.  Usually this helps me figure out what I really want to do and sometimes that means scrapping what I've made altogether.  In this case I managed to salvage most of what I had done.  I just needed to carefully pry apart a few layers then recreate the main layer by stamping some new images onto it.  Not too much additional work!

Thanks for stopping by!
