Ahhhhh… another masculine card – yay! I usually find them to be difficult to make but I’ve turned out several lately! This card is another Labor Day creation in which I combined Sketch Challenge #205 (SC205) and Color Challenge #225 (CC225), both challenges from a ways back that I had filed away for future inspiration!
I had purchased the Botanical Blooms set off of eBay earlier this summer and hadn’t used it yet (shameful, I know!), but it was the first set that came to mind when planning this card. I was a little leery about being able to get it to work with this color challenge (which specified using Kraft, So Saffron, and Night of Navy), but I like how it turned out… an unexpected way to showcase flowers!
I wasn’t too sure what to do with all the blank space on the left-hand side of the card so I chose to run the sentiment vertically alongside the main image, and fill the rest of the area with a “no frills” ribbon arrangement.
Thanks for stopping by today and please be sure to leave a comment with a link back to your online gallery or blog so that I may come and see what you’ve created lately!
