The photograph in my blog header was taken by my friend Marcia who graciously allowed me to use it in my blog after I ooooh'd and aaaah'd over it last summer. Thanks so much, Marcia!
This Wednesday's challenge over at Simplicity's blog was to create a single layer, grey and white card with a pop of color. Some weeks when I read the new challenge I know exactly what I want to do (now whether it actually happens is another thing!), and some weeks I am lost in the weeds. This was one of those weeks. But, yesterday as I was rummaging around my flower drawers (stamp drawers!) I saw this awesome Penny Black image and immediately thought of masking out a portion of it to nestle in a sentiment. Sentiment by Saavy. Made the oval mask with a SU oval punch. Had the card done in 15 minutes. Taking a picture has taken much longer. It is cloudy and dreary here today and 4 Ott lights just aren't doin' it for me! Sorry for the poor quality image.
