Welcome once again and thank you for calling by.
I decided that I would make a card simply for fun - and with a couple of challenges in mind. My starting point was an image I was sent in a RAK from my dear friend Linda, that has a pithy quote accompanying it!!
I had hoped to trim the total image to an oval, but it just would not 'work', so I had to go with a rectangle and a scalloped edged rectangle underneath it.
The colours took some time to 'come together', and they are not a colour combination that I would typically use being lemon and bright pink, with some blue in a background panel.
I wanted to put a focal point on the ribbon, but had nothing on hand, so improvised instead with a jewelery pin, some beads and a pair of pliers to twist the end with. I also added some half pearls in lavender to accent the floral corners and one corner of the main image.
This is the end result, which when looking at it again, still brings a smile to me.
I am linking this to:
based on Proverbs 17:22
"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
This scripture holds so true, and I personally know that if one can keep a positive attitude in the more difficult times of life, and can have a laugh with a friend, life seems to be so much more bearable.
The challenge is to use humour in a card, and I think this fits the bill.
I appreciate you visiting, and leaving a comment - may your day be blessed.
