Today Keesh has given us a colour challenge to play along with, so I do hope you can find some time to play!!
Here's my card for today's challenge.. I've kept it Clean and Simple, mostly because I wanted to make something for my AWESOME and AMAZING Dad who has been working SOOOO hard here the past few weekends with my also FABULOUS hubby, giving the front garden a little BLITZ!!!
So bearing all that in mind, the most important part being that it is for a BLOKEY bloke here it it:-
And here is the colour swatch for you to see:-
I started with a base of Vanilla then added a layer or Choc Chip and some DSP from my long retired Outlaw pack which uses Creamy Caramel and Very Vanilla. The top panel is Brocade Blue which I've cut with my Scallop Edge Punch and then added a little paper piercing.. I was tempted to use my Apron Lace punch, but thought that my be a little "fancy" for a Blokey Bloke!!! I couldn't resist using just a little ribbon.. I don't think he'll mind too much, I'll just tell him to pretend it's a rag or something... hahaha, and the little button was my FIRST attempt at making my very own, although I got a little over zealous with the Crystal Effects and then wasn't PATIENT for long enough before I started fluffing about with it, so it's a little smudged ... remember ladies.. patience is a virtue when it comes to Crystal Effects.. hahaha.
The sentiment is my very own Handwriting using my Choc Chip Stampin' Write Marker.
