Do you ever get stuck on a card, just can't make it work, and have to walk away? It happens to me quite often. Anyways today's card was one of those cards...
I started on it yesterday and knew I wanted to work with this topiary image and I thought it would look great pair with embossed leaves from In Bloom. So the original color combo was ripe avocado, brown, kraft and cream. I played around with different layouts, different buttons, whatever I could think of! Nothing was working! So I though enough is enough and left to go to my work out class. I guess getting a good buns kicking work out must have kick my brain into gear! As soon as I got back I took one look at my card and thought "COLOR!" So that's when the raspberry fizz came into play and everything else just fell into place.It's kind of hard to tell in the pictures but the leaves are embossed with clear embossing powder. The topiary pot was stamped a second time and cut out, then mounted with dimensional adhesive for a little bit more dimension. For the selection of the buttons, I thought it would be neat to pair a fun textured button (top, but it's hardly noticeable) with a simple one (bottom).
I think it turned out all right, considering the struggle I had with it.
Thanks for stopping in! I hope you enjoyed spending a little time with me today.
