Kristina Werner's Weekly Color Challenge #15


Yeah, I know, overdone, but I like the components. I chose the Petal Perfect chain from the Fold-It Links template Hot Off The Press/Paper Wishes and it was easier to make than I thought it would be. You simply trace, cut out, fold and decorate. I dressed the plain white petals up a bit with the layered flower centers in the inspiration colors and edged them with Close To Cocoa Ink from Stampin' Up. The bedding in Kristina's inspiration piece had a white chain effect and that was what I was going for. Loved the way the chain looks on the layered torn paper... FABULOUS! But the other side of the card was so bare. After sleeping on it, I knew I wanted to "say" something and came up with "MISS U" on the tags. Love this too! The problem? With both elements on the card it is just, well, too vertical, too much, something doesn't quite work. Anywho, I'm going to submit it and work on fixes over the weekend.

I don't think it's overdone, I love it! If you'd left something off, your card wouldn't be so fabulous!
