And I'm too tired to clean up before I go to bed. Today was a creating day. When I get into these designing frenzies, everything flies and caution hits the wind. And I end up with chaos like you see here! I had several cards to design, four of which were to be for the Birthday Stamper's Dozen this week. I wanted eye-catching designs, but ones that were simple to make and I'll show you what I came up with as the week progresses. I do have one of the designs that I want to show you today, because it follows the sketch for the MOJO Monday Challenge #281, designed by Mary Fish, one of my favourite bloggers.
I really like the overlapping circle concept and I decided to use the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and its colour palette for my design. It's an unusual palette. I don't know if I would have thought to use these colours together, but it works for a vintage look.
I incorporated several new things in this card: the Feeling Sentimental set bicycle image, an image from Bring On the Cake, a stamp set that I just received free from Stampin' Up for blogging about Leadership 2013, and the clock from Tea Time Trinkets, which I have been dying to use, but never found the right spot until now.
