My card today is for two challenges. Click on over to the Color Throwdown blog to see their awesome colour challenge #246, and then check out The Paper Players and their Bring on the Bling challenge #150.
Honestly, I really find it a challenge to do two challenges at once. I get sort of involved with the one and then the other isn't really working out, I forget something, or the whole card just isn't turning into what I have pictured in my head. It's sort of stressful actually! But with this card, I didn't have that at all! At first the colours were giving me fits and I felt like scrapping the whole card, but suddenly I just seemed to pull it all together. Then I looked at it and I loved it, but it still seemed to need just a little... you know.... something. Pearls! And then I remembered this challenge! Couldn't have been more perfect really! So that was that... and I love when that happens... and this card is just so gorgeous, I am entirely pleased with the way it all came together.
Here's the finished product, which I will give to a very special lady whose birthday is on Friday. I hope she likes it.
Thanks for taking the time to look, and let me know what you think about my card. Have a great day!
