Dini's birthday challenge #5


I cannot believe how much easier it is to work - both cardmaking and housekeeping - with everyone gone! Wow!

Anyway, Dini's challenge for today was to case a card from the gallery at Our Daily Bread. I have to tell you, this is an absolutely awesome gallery! Even though ODB does not (yet!) have a large offering of stamps, the designers are amazingly creative. I plan to visit frequently. I chose a simple card, in part because of my own limitations in card making, and in part, because as I've said in earlier posts this month, I have a ton of organizing & catching up to do, both in my stamp room and the home in general. I chose this card to case, and was pleased with the result. I chose it because I liked the color combination, however, I didn't have quite the right tan/beige background paper, and when I discovered the more olive colored paper that I used, it blended so perfecty (and surprisingly!) with the light teal I had, I stopped looking! I don't own flowers in the right color, so I used my cuttlebug and added texture to the cardstock.

I love how the large black lowercase font stands out. this is really a card you can look at for a while. the small print juxtaposed next to the big black letters is striking.
