Hi! I guess I haven't posted in a few days, life is busy, and then darn colds! Before I made this card for MIM I saw the new colors for ColourQ and decided to make a card for both. Not much thinking outside the box on this one , but I do like it, and think it could be a great guy card too! I didn't add sequins (this time) but couldn't resist adding some random stars, I liked it blank too .
Let not your heart be troubled!
Lil Inkers stitched frames
and Papertrey Ink cardstock
Colds are NO fun, hope everyone is feeling better in your house. This is super duper Marybeth. Great job getting this together for both challenges! I like the addition of the stars, it ties back to the little one in the sentiment!!ReplyDelete
Love it Marybeth. I agree with Lisa the stars tie it together.ReplyDelete
LOVE this! The stars are the perfect touch!ReplyDelete
I think this is gorgeous! Bold, graphic and I love that sentiment too! Great work!ReplyDelete
Inside or outside the box thinking...doesn't matter, your card is FAB!ReplyDelete
Are those stitched edges? ha, ha, love that die you use to make those!!
The sentiment is great and the colours and stars give it so much interest!!
Any guy ( or for that matter girl) would appreciate a card like the one you made!! :-)
Thanks for inspiring.
Bye from the Netherlands,
great card! hope you're feeling better!! thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week!ReplyDelete
Your overlapping turned out amazing! Love your use of the colors.ReplyDelete
Love your card Marybeth - I've resisted this set so far, but love the overlapping colors on your card. Love that it is on a red base too - really makes it bright & happy.ReplyDelete
Love this card!! Perfect IMHO!! Watercolor Wonder arrived at my house last nite and I so should've gotten these BDay sentiments!! Sorry about the cold...hope you're feeling better soon!!ReplyDelete
Marybeth I love this fabulous card. I think Watercolour Wonder just went on my wish list!ReplyDelete
Ii was too quick, and thank yous o much for sharing your beautiful card with us this week at the colourQ!ReplyDelete
I vote stars. You've put them in exactly the right place. Summer colds are worst! Hope yours is a short one. By the way, love the colors you chose!ReplyDelete
Love the watercolor stamps behind the sentiment!!!! And it doesn't hurt that you threw in a little Lil' Inker!!!ReplyDelete
I think the stars make the perfect finishing touches! Love your choice of Watercolor Wonder too--really awesome card! Hope you feel better soon!!ReplyDelete
Awesome Marybeth! You chose some super colors....ReplyDelete
Love this simple little gem...
the watercolor wonder and colors...
and I think the stars were the perfect finishing touch! :)
I bet these would be easy to mass produce to have on hand! ;)
I just love how the watercolors go over the sentiment. And, the stitched mat and little stars are perfect additions.ReplyDelete
Marybeth this is so fun! Love the colors, the stars and I may have to case it for some cards I need to make tomorrow! Great masculine card!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness. I purchased the Watercolor Wonder set because it looked so fun, but I haven't been inspired at all to use it yet! But your card totally inspires me. To me, I think it is one of the best uses of this set that I've seen. Brilliant. ;-)ReplyDelete
LOVE the stars and LOVE your swipes of different colors! So cool this could work for male or female! Feel better, Marybeth!ReplyDelete
That watercolor set intimidates me but I LOVE how you have used it. What a perfect backdrop to that fun sentiment!ReplyDelete
This stamp set makes a great back drop for the sentiment. The color combos really look great with the ombre look.ReplyDelete
This is so beautiful and one fabulous birthday card. I love the look of the water color stamps and that sentiment over the top is perfect.ReplyDelete
Beautiful colors! Love the way, when layered the two colors make another color. This stamp is just perfect for this!ReplyDelete
LOVE this beauty, Marybeth! Perfect sentiment placement, and there's that stitched mat again. One of these days they will come to live in my craft room. LOL!ReplyDelete
Great card, Marybeth, love how you used your bright colors! Hope you are feeling better now! Thanks for playing with us at the colourQ each week.ReplyDelete
WOW, this is simply FABULOUS, Marybeth! I love the striking color combo!ReplyDelete
