Gently Falling Duo Challenge
I had a wonderful day crafting with my two best friends today! I got up early this morning and made us some soup and banana nut bread to snack on during our girls' day. They were both yummy and helped fire up our mojo for some card making! This was the card I worked on today; it uses the fun sketch from Pals Paper Arts. I love this sketch and will definitely be filing it away for future reference! I also wanted to play along with The Friday Mashup and use twine on my card. I adore baker's twine and seem to be using it way more than ribbon lately.
I am really enjoying Gently Falling, so I'm pretty sure I'll be putting an order in for it tomorrow. :) To start my card, I played around with my Color Coach and decided I liked the look of Calypso Coral, So Saffron, and Early Espresso together. Once I figured out how much of each I wanted to feature on my card, everything went together pretty easily.
