I'm So Glad You're My...



This card is for my sweetie and I truly am glad he's my husband and the father of our two children. When I saw the colors for the new CR84FN56 Color Challenge I instantly thought of Authentique's Blissful Collection. The challenge colors of yellow, gray and a neutral work perfectly with these dp's and I gravitate toward geometric patterns for some reason. It's certainly not from a love of mathematics I can tell you! I've been branching out with new challenges lately and the challenge at Our Creative Corner  caught my attention. The challenge is to use our favorite T!m Holtz technique and I've been wanting to make his tissue tape flower for a while, so I did, and you can view his video here {last one}. Since my DH is an engineer I placed a sprocket gear from T!m's idea-ology line in the center and a black Kaisercraft pearl to finish it off. I did not use a sketch but formulated my own design and any reference to a sketch 'out there' is purely coincidental. The third challenge I'm participating in is the Make It Monday #93 Challenge where all creations are welcome. Here's the yummy beautiful inspiration photo from the CR84FN56 Color Challenge and there's plenty of time to play along with all three challenges.



Thanks for spending some of your day with me and I hope you have a fantastic week!

OHHH, L1...
Houndstooth and numbers and rulers, OH my!! I despise math myself. That's not true, I have a fondness for it, but it's many formulas and equations elude me. I do however know that I love your Father's Day card to your hubster. This is wonderful and the design and sketch layout look fantastic. Just got back from a spontaneous road trip so I'm off to see if I missed anything else. Gorgeous card L1 and thank you so much for your comments the other day.
Hugs to you,
L2
