For Alex...

Hi everyone! Today's card is just so special! I made it for my step daughter, Alex. Alex lives in Seattle with her mom, and we don't get to see her a lot, but she's a great kid! She spent last summer with us and we had a great time. So, she'll be 16 in a couple of weeks. I cannot believe it! Of course, I am too young to have a child that age (Ha!), but apparently my husband is not...heehee.

So, in keeping with the festivities over at Papertrey, I decided to use one of the color schemes provided for today's contest.







This is the favorite of Lisa Johnson. I chose this one because these are colors that I don't normally use - especially red  - and I thought it would be a nice change of pace. Who knows...red could become the next yellow for me. :)



Here is the card that I made for Alex:






All I can say is that I will totally use this color combo again. I love the way it all looks together. What do you think?



Stamps: Big Birthday Wishes (papertrey)
Card Stock: Spring Rain, Vanilla, Kraft (papertrey); dsp (su)
Ink: Bashful Blue, Real Red (su)
Extras: Woodgrain impression plate, Numbers Die, button, large scallop border, twine (papertrey); Flower (Michael's)

Gorgeous! I can't believe how you continually amaze. Surely you get tired and need a nap from always being so creatively on point? ;-) That flower is a whole lot of fun. It works fantastically with the stenciling of the Nestie. Beautiful card.
