Marina Mist Birthday
So about my card. Do you ever start out with one plan and wind up with something completely different? I started this card with an idea to use my new kayaker and a layout I had seen on a website. So I started with the layout and got the grommets on the edge, the colors in play and the background papers in. But then when I went to add the kayaker, the image just wasn't working. It was too small and boring. So I decided to make the focal point the message and I like the way this turned out. Tune in later this week to see how I did use my kayaker with a different layout! ( - :
The colors are river rock, marina mist and natural white - these colors go so well together. I'm loving marina mist. It's my favorite blue these days. The stamps sets are argyle from pti and a retired birthday set from stampin up. I used a polka dot embossing folder and some textured thread from pti on my grommets.
Thanks for looking - leave a comment if you can! Enjoy
