WOJ Challenge #32...Brown and Blue!
After a restful weekend, I really was in the mood to create a few cards. I can't speak for everyone else, but there are times when I have to back away from the craft table and simply clear my head.
While looking for different sketches, challenges and inspiration, I decided to make a card for WOJ's color challenge....brown and blue! This color combination isn't a particular favorite of mine, but once my card came together, I was rather pleased with the results.
Originally, my ribbon was blue but that did not work for me at all. I removed the blue ribbon and replaced it with this sheer ribbon from Flourishes and I loved it. Initially I had wanted to incorporate more hints of blue embellishments, but I decided that the blue smock,pants and umbrella were enough and met the challenge requirements.
