Make a Wish....or 2 or 6..

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday! It's nap time at our house, but I have been hard at work on a card that has had me go through countless sheets of card stock and more glitter than necessary.  A little backstory here: So this morning I woke up at 6 and decided to see what the Curtain Call color challenge was this week. I saw it was this:


Ok, kinda springy colors and kinda fun and flirty. I think, oh I can whip this out in a few minutes and then have plenty of time to shower before church. Fast forward to 8:15 when I should be in the shower or at least in the closet looking for an outfit and I am still in the craft room dealing with this card. Ugh. For the life of me I am not sure why these colors drove me up the wall, and honestly I am not sure if it was actually the colors or if it was just that I had no mojo this morning. So, off to church we went and as soon as we ate after coming home I decided to give it another go. That was at 11:45 central..fast forward {yes, again} to 2:07 central and I am JUST finishing. Oh goodness..I just could not get a good card out of me today. It was so crazy! I have so many card bases lined up and so much wasted supply sitting on the table and in the garbage...lol..I hate mojoless days like this! So, this is what I came up with finally:






I don't know..what do you think?  It's a little plain and a little juvenile, but it's all I had today..lol. ..and there was NO way I wasn't going to post something today! Not after all of that time.  :)


Well, anyway...I hope you guys like it and now it's time for a nap. I have to be back at church for Awana in 2 hours and then we're having a sleepover tonight. Ok, so it's just me, Aaron, and Ava downstairs, but we're watching "Twilight" (time #47!) and "The Simpson's Movie" and "Harry Potter" (which one is up in the air, but whichever one it is it'll be my nth time seeing it..lol), so I wont be resting then. Have a great rest of the day and i'll see you tomorrow!

It is a perfect birthday card for a tween kinda girl and you could carry the theme through with stars ...... star shaped bubble bath maybe make a journal ..... I think this looks fantastic and sometimes simple is more perfect then all the bells and whistles ...... GREAT CARD KEVA!!!

Great card Keva, love the interaction of the 3 elements at the top (the star, flourish, and ric rac), and the sentiment is PERFECT with them! And of course these are really fabulous colors!

Laurie said...

Oh I like this Keva! Such a great CAS card! that flourish at the top is so pretty!!

Dana said...

I feel your pain on spending hours on a card you thought would be simple to pull off. SO frustrating but you can't just give up!
I definitely don't think your card is juvenile, not at all. It's just clean and simple and I think it works for the challenge perfectly.
Hope you had fun with the family on Movie night!

I think this is really cute! I like the sentiment down in the corner. It really balances the card.

Julie said...

This is adorable, Keva! I love how you used the colors! Great card!

I really like your use of the rickrack strips in different colors. The flourish from the star is a fun accent.

Christina said...

Oh my goodness, I had the same struggles with this color combo! Not good for my first week on the Crew! I had lots of wasted cardstock, to say the least. Anyway, I would have never known that you struggled by looking at this fun card. I love that you went bold and bright, and the flourish is fabulous! So glad you stuck with it this week!
