Melon berry petals


Todays color challenge is a difficult one for me! One ink color and one layer! So I didnt EXACTLY make a one layer card but my layers are white!LOL!! I used a set that had some serious dust on it!LOL! I dont own alot of bold images since I love to color so much so I didnt have alot to choose from. About the only bold images I own are flower images and since its been awhile since I made a flower card I decided to go for it. Ive seen alot of cards using the brad/button combo and loved how it looked so I used it for my flower center which is the reason I needed another layer so the brad prongs wouldnt show through. I also used my curved rectangle nesties that was enabled by the fabulous Denise. She has made some gorgeous cards using these nesties and of course I had to have them!LOL! Im still trying to decide what type of sentiment to use on this card. I need some sympathy cards and I keep putting it off b/c I struggle with them. I never know what images to use. Do you think this would be a good sympathy card?!?!
We had a good time at the beach but I was ready to come home!! Alana started coughing alot while we were there and she went to the Dr yesterday and she has bronchitis. yayy fun!LOL! We went to Friday Fest while we were there. It was fun! The kids liked looking at all the cars/trucks and listening to the bands lined up on the streets. Have a great day!
