Sometimes my brain is so full of ideas for new cards to make I can hardly choose which direction to head first. Other times (like this week!) I draw a blank and nothing I try seems to turn out at all. In times like this I like to turn to sketches/color palettes/theme challenges to get things kick-started. Today's card is a combo of a couple different challenge themes all rolled into one!
I chose the sketch from The Paper Players and the hues from the Color Throwdown. Since I like to "think outside the box," I made my burlap string do double duty as both the side banner and the small element in the sketch.
These photos almost make it look like I used a dark blue, but I can assure you - that really is deep plum card-stock accenting my green and rust!
