And You Thought . . .

I was going to put this stamp set away for a day or two. Well, that I was before I saw this great card on the 2B Krafty blog. Isn't Janine's card pretty? I was intrigued by the color combination, a couple of colors I don't think I've ever put together before. Now that the card is done, however, I'm wondering if I might not have liked Buttercup with Outdoor Denim more than I like the Moonstruck/Buttercup combination. I guess that's a question I'll have to answer on another day.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Moonstruck, and Buttercup cardstock; Moonstruck ink pad; Treasure Life September SOTM; Hero Arts Art Flowers Spring Collection; Moonstruck Bigger Brads; White mini brads; Acrylic discs from Michael's; Cuttlebug w/Swiss Dots embossing folder and Nestabilities Classic Ovals set.

By the time the guys got home from the golf tournament last night, Bjorn and Mathias were both in bed. Thus, they are still here. I'm going to go hop in the shower, and then I think we should make a trip outside for a little fresh air and exploration. I have another card to post later. Until then, enjoy the day!

I love this card!! I think Moonstruck was a good choice to make. If you would have used Outdoor Denim, I think the Buttercup would have been too "washed out." If you use OD in the future, try using Honey or Sunflower...you make like the results. This is just one opinion though. Like I said, I LOVE this card. I may have to CASE it! First I have to get the stamp set! LOL Great job!!
