Its Tuesday - Garden Party time, where a magazine clipping from the "Inspiration Shoebox" is used to design a card.
Here was the photo from last week --->
I really liked the wall color contrasted with the wood. And I liked the way the pictures were hung. I actually had this idea (a collection of family photos) for one wall in my house. Unfortunately, I only have two pictures hung so far (hey - its only been 7 years since I started....). Two lonely pictures don't quite have the same effect.
So here is my card. I decided to use the family of justjohanna owls. (Aren't the owls cute?)
I covered the white bar with sheer blue swiss dot ribbon to give it a little more interest, but I wish I had thought to stamp it with "Having a fine owl'd time" (another justjohanna stamp). I scored the background paper to give it the beadboard texture.
I love all the owls and could easily come up with a story for each one about their place in the family.
This card was a bit of an experiment. But that's OK - experimenting is kind of the point of this anyway.
And there is always next week.
Speaking of next week - here is next week's challenge photo (yes - more green!). If you'd like to play along - just comment on this post and I'll link to your entry when I show my card next week.
Oh, and I have not updated the store with new stuff yet (sorry - life got in the way a little). But I have great new stuff (really - honest - its right here). I just need to get it loaded into the site. Wait till you see the new kits - I think you'll really like them.
