Welp, I confess that this week I decided to take this GDP#042 sketch and put my own spin on it. No circles or banners, but ribbons and layered dies and flowers.
I have a family member who is 100% classy, modern, and simplistic. She’s a lady-lady, and she’s stylish but timeless. So as I sat down to make this card, I knew that I couldn’t adorn her card with loads of feminine frill or stamps, but just needed to go back to some lovely basics. Gold, black, and white with a few pops of color.Big, bold stripes in colors that will always be “in”. The Pop of Pink specialty designer series paper is so nice, since some of the sheets have gold in them. “She leaves a little sparkle where ever she goes” comes to mind. With my gold twine (a Target steal for $.50) and this subtle gold-white paper, this card comes together.
I know, I know, not spot-on with the sketch, but I like to live on the wild side. Background shape, sentiment, specialty feature, some horizontal features… wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am.
