Spring tulips – #GDP089

Today I participated in the Global Design Project color challenge to use Basic Black, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive.

GDP089_Colour_Challenge

This past weekend, my husband and I went to a garden festival and saw lots of beautiful flowers and I think the color combination of Old Olive and Calypso Coral are perfect for flowers. I left this as a simple design letting the image be the star.

Card Challenge

Today I participate in the Global Design Project theme challenge: winged creatures and went with fireflies. Although it is still February, spring has arrived here in South Carolina with flowers and trees in bloom. That means that summertime and fireflies will be here before you know it!

I love the pop that the copper embossing powder provides on the jar lid

Holiday/New Year Card

Today, I was inspired by the Global Design Project sketch challenge. Here is the sketch layout:

And here is the card I came up with:

img_0404

I like that the sentiment isn’t specific – it can be used for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s, or even a winter birthday! I stuck to only using the two colors (Whisper White and Soft Sky) since the snowflake packs such a powerful punch and I wanted that to be the star of the card.
