You are my Most Favorite

Hi Everyone,

Conil from Which Craft? inspired me to play along with the Ellen Hudson pin sights challenge. She made the most gorgeous card - you have to go over and see it! Initially I was not thrilled about the colors - a bit drab....but after seeing her card I gave it a try.


I made the background paper with water color. Added the sentiment (Neat&Tangled) and the die cuts (Ellen Hudson)

 As you can see, I also added some splatters, Washi tape and enamel dots. My husband thought its too busy. Perhaps he is right.


I think its okay - it does not always have to be CAS, right?

Happy stamping!

No really doesn't have to be CAS and I love it! Gorgeous how you've used the colours, the water coloured striped background and all the elements make one fabby card....Maybe we shouldn't always show our Husbands our finished card...That's caught me out before too. Had a little chuckle about that x

Hi Cornelia!

Anything you make is always great in my book. I suspect your beloved hubs is used to more CAS cards from you - this one is lovely with the little more detail for a change.

Ha! Now try vintage to send him running for the hills! :)

Hugs

Schon witzig, dass wir gleich hintereinander gepostet haben! Deine Karte ist toll! Nicht CAS, das stimmt, aber du "darfst" ja auch mal was anderes probieren... ;) Ich mag die Streifen!

I think it was a matter of opinion, it doesn't look too busy to me...it looks spectacular. Honestly gorgeous. Initially,wasn't sure about the colors myself, so kind of ignored them. But yous has incorporated them all and beautifully. Thanks so much for the shout out, it's much appreciated.

I think it's a great card from difficult colours - they wouldn't be what I chose off hand! I don't think it's too busy at all either. I love the streaks of blue on the background mixed with the gold down the side. xx

Just spotted your response to my comment - sniggering here! Why not link up into the Playground - now I BET that CAS die I have on offer as a prize would meet with the Bosses approval :)

Been to dentist today for a back tooth filling - why do I now feel my grin is as wide as a Muppet's? :(

Hugs

I LOVE the look of this card Cornelia. The colours are great and, of course, I love ANYTHING with splatters on it!

Not too busy at all, Cornelia ... rather spectacular, actually ... you've worked magic with that colour palette ... the soft watercolour stripes, the shimmer and that gorgeous gold combine to make such a delicious card! Hugs, Anita :)
