Hello to my fellow bloggers and readers!! I'm so happy to be able to post a card after such a long time!!! I'm typing this with crossed toes that my children will stay healthy for the next week & 1 day....yep, June 1st is the last day of freakin' school and I can't tell you how excited I am about that!!! We have had one heck of a year with illnesses in our home....I'm truly not used to this since they were such healthy babies......but we're looking forward to school being out and to them being healthy---at least until school starts again next year!!!!!
Anywhoo, onto my post for today! This card is for the Color Throwdown challenge to use Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant and Lavender Lace. I absolutely love this color combo and very happily combined it with this week's Sketch Challenge from SCS.....who could resist an easy thinker LOL!! I also used an old tried & true background technique for my layered pieces---Glossy Resist. I like how my panels came out---I think it makes my card very elegant! Thanks for the great challenge ladies!
I'm off to work on my Twisted Thursday Sketch card for tomorrow. Be sure and come back to see what I've come up with! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!
