During this past year with 365 Cards, I have been stretched so far out of my comfort zone by Pam's challenges that I cannot get back! I have learned a lot (which I thought impossible since I've been card making since Moses was a boy), and I really found myself enjoying this creative process to the fullest! I am so happy to be on board for one more year!
Your challenge today is the color scheme below: teal, chocolate, white, red, kraft.
I sort of used a pale version of the teal color, but I told Pam that she knew I'd cheat sooner or later, so might as well do it on the first card of the year and put her out of her misery! (insert evil laugh here)I used Basic Grey Nook and Pantry for my background and paper piecing. I could not figure out how to use this sheet of BG paper. It's so busy and...wow! I had stamped the My Favorite Things image (thanks, Melody!) onto white and then some scraps of Nook and Pantry, so I paper pieced the lady first. Then the rest of the card just came together. (I channelled my inner Rose today!)
ETA: Many of you know that my family and I have been very active in our church, in leadership, children's ministry, music ministry, and more. Well, due to some difficult issues, we've made the very hard choice to leave our church of the past 5 years and seek a new church home. Please pray that the Lord will show us His will during this uncertain time. It's very scary to visit new churches and meet so many new people. We struck out in faith Sunday morning, and while we don't feel the church we visited was a good fit, we were blessed by the love we were shown.
