Holy Cow!! Bright is the word of the day over at the Color Throwdown blog. Tangerine Tango and I don't generally get along and Ballet Blue is a color I've only reached for when a challenge required it. So needless to say Tangerine Tango, Ballet Blue and Brilliant Blue was a bit of a shock this morning.
However, once I got into my craft room and got to looking at the colors together they weren't half bad. Maybe it's because I live and Colorado and am a huge Denver Bronco fan or maybe it was all the caffeine I had but this card came together quick and easy and I really like it.
These colors just had to be a little boy card and I found these really, REALLY old papers in my stash that matched todays colors well. I stamped the stars from Verve's Polka Stars (ENABLER ALERT: Verve is having a SALE) and distressed the edges (you really can't tell in the photo) I stitched some crooked lines on both layers and added some fun elements like the spiral edge and the staples and the card was done. I think I'm going to make a few more of these today just to have on hand. I never have a cute boy card when I need it and have plenty of this dp left.
Make sure you head over to the Color Throwdown blog and check out the DT's cards, they blow me away every week.
Thanks for stopping by!
