thank you

My summer tour of publication rejects continues with this bright and cheerful card.  This is unusual for me in that I've put red and pink together.  I have a hard enough time with pink, let alone putting it with red.  This patterned paper inspired me and I think it works.  Another note is that the paper piercing was added after I submitted for publication ... bugs me when I feel brilliant after the fact!

Happy August and have an amazing summer.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Oh this is so cool. I love the colors. The layered flower is awesome paired with that dp. I can't believe it was rejected...only means they were looking for something specific is all.

  2. I love the colors together! So summery and cheerful. Yes, the piercing is brilliant--LOVE that idea!

  3. This card totally works!!! This colour combo is my fave!! LOL!! To bad about the late genius moment :(
