A Bland Card.



I think there is just way too much ivory on this card. I need to add more color. I was going for simple card but ended up with a bland one. Boo. Oh well. It's really too late to fix it now. I am just stuck with it. Anyway, I made this card for last week's SCS sketch challenge. I am way behind on some of my favorite sketches because I have been so crazy busy with everything. I miss them but what can I do? I just don't have enough time on my hands! For this card I wanted to use some black accents so I punched out the little flowers, added black brads to them, and popped them up on dimensionals. I then tied on some lovely black organza ribbon and called it good. I guess I don't hate the card, but it's definitely not a favorite of mine. Well, that's all for today! Enjoy your Tuesday! I am somewhere in the state of Colorado trucking along behind these dedicated men. I can't even begin to imagine how hard it would be to ride a bike up an entire mountain! They are doing it left and right though! Go boys! :D Us women are enjoying our time together. Continue to pray for their safety if you would. I always get nervous watching these guys get passed by some not-so-courteous drivers going 70 mph.

I've been blog hopping and noticed you've been a busy RAKing Blogger lately! Great Job!
I really like this card, I think it's dramatic the contrasts of color you have going on here.
Blessings and Happy RAKing!
