Anyway, I'm not here to discuss shopping, but to enter my card for the Colour Q Challenge #117. I love working with black & white/cream and to add a colour to it is always fun.
And I had so much fun checking out all the entries thus far as to see what colours were being chosen by others. There are some fantastic entries! Not to mention the design team inspirational projects!
I decided to try and use as much colour as possible and go a little different...a little offbeat if you will, but still using one of my favorite tools - Spellbinders. For my additional colour I chose to go with a colour that I have a ton of in my scrap files - Spring Green! This is what I came up with.
Now some you Spellbinder lovers will wonder where I got a rectangle of the Fleur De Lis pendant? ...well I actually cut out two, cut them with the Square in the center to create a frame, and then cut and pieced it together. It worked much better than I thought it would. But, even though you can barely see it, knowing the light and camera would not be kind to the piecing of the frame, I covered the seam with the ribbon. And that is another story! do you know how long it took me to decide on what colour of ribbon to go with? I went back and forth between white, black, and green.
And next is a side view of the card so that you can see all the layers popped up. Will have to mail in special envelopes at this thickness...4 popped up layers!
I think I might try this again with a variety of colours. It was a fun card to make despite being unable to make up my mind on what colour ribbon to go with. ;)
Thank you so much for stopping by, and let me know what colour of ribbon you would have gone with! Happy crafting!
