With Gratitude

Hello Friends,  Before I get to telling you about today’s card I need to explain that my card photos over the next few posts maybe a little off…. as Apple decided to completely re-vamp iPhoto ( and they didn’t even clear it with me first) and now I have to re-learn the program all over again.  So bare with me for a few weeks or so.  There are some perks to the new and improved iPhoto, however I have also found some distaste.  My son says to give it time…so the verdict is out for now! With that said, the colors on my card DO indeed MATCH the color challenge I am playing with over at The Paper Players.  I just couldn’t get the grey to not look deep brown no matter what I did.  My son says also, “You know mom, I have a very easy solution…it is called Photoshop.”  Of course that is not free and very costly, so I think I will just press on and see how I can do on my own!  So imagine these colors just as the graphic below!   I also paired it up with this super fUN sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch that I couldn’t wait to tackle! The bird and sentiment is from Verve’s With Love set! There are also 5 score lines on this card as well.  3 vertically down the left side and 2 other horizontal ones at the top and bottom of the card.  If you click on the photo to enlarge it, I think that maybe you will be able to see them.  I paper pieced the bird with some real fun DP I had in my scrap stash.  I finished it up with some ink splatters in all three colors!  Boy how I love doing this!! The splat colors came out rather true to the right colors, so very strange! The square scalloped sentiment tag is raised with some pop dots!  The leaf stamps are from Cloud9 Designs.
