Fusion: Striped Wreath
You know those articles about planning your wardrobe for the week on Sunday nights so you are less rushed in the morning? That never worked for me......how could I possibly know what I would feel like wearing so many days ahead of time? (Yes packing for a vacation is very hard for me!) And the same principle applies to my card making.....I cannot do cards waaaay ahead of time even when I know what the challenge is because I don't know what sort of mood I will be in that week. I know crazy but true.........I gave up fighting my personality quirks long ago! Because of my Atlanta trip I had just a small window of time to complete my Fusion card this week. Gram and Emma and life in general fill my days quickly. I was hurrying to finish this card in time yesterday. I added the little sprinkly xxx above the pumpkin and then I thought "Hmmm it looks blank underneath so I will add a few more."
Well of course it looked blank because that's where the sentiment "Hang in There!" was supposed to go. That finally dawned on me while editing the photo and there was no time left for a redo. Sigh.......so for a minute I worried about my brain cells and then I thought - "Hey that's what the inside of the card is for!"
I played around with colors and shapes to do a total Fusion card today - inspired by the sketch and the photo! Hope you join us!
The colors I used worked perfectly for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge!
