Hello! Have you ever made a card you weren't happy with? Well, I do LOTS of times and the one I made for this card was just OFF! So I took it apart and "FIXED" it. I liked both of the peices as individuals, but the way I colored the focal point and then add these STRONG colors...well, it clashed.
Add to that, the sad news a friend of mine was killed in a car crash yesterday, was quite shocking and I wasn't up to fixing it last night. I was thinking about the Brevity of life and how we just never know when it is going to be our time. Please keep her family in your prayers. The family members remaining are Dave (husband), Paul (college son), Michael (high school). I am praying that the testimony of God's Love in her life will draw them closer to God - may each of them hide under the shelter of the Most High and find rest, comfort and peace.
Give your family members extra hugs today!!! I gave my teen daughter one and she just gave me an odd look. Oh well. When she is "old" like me (not that I am old mind you, but to her I am), she will value those things much more, right? lol
Today's Challenge is a Color Challenge as you can see listed below. Add to that, the Technique Lovers Challende from Splitcoast... Designing with Paper Pleats (the chocolate/white panel on the left) and that is my card...
