Hidey ho chickies! This is for yet another Raspberry Suite Color Challenge! We're on week 6 - time to use aqua, berry, chocolate and white! :-) I've been enjoying the color challenges and it's nice to stretch my usual color combos a little. :)
Bri's out and I got to just sit and craft for a whole night w/o interruptions. No need to cook, no need to clean. It's been lovely! I didn't get a chance to craft at all last weekend as we've been out and about.
I had to switch my driver's license to PA since I don't live in the dirty South anymore. ;) But it's been more of a hassle than it should have been -- and mainly because my first name has a hyphen in it. (My parents gave me a Chinese first name.. Belinda's technically my middle name). For whatever reason, PA can't handle hyphens as the first name so they couldn't confirm that I was actually who I said I was when they tried to look me up. So they blamed NC, they blamed the Social Security office, they blamed everything under the sun. I'm pretty sure hyphens have been in names since who knows when. It's one line of code to change... sigh.
Oh well... going tomorrow morning AGAIN to try to sort this out. Crossing my fingers! I just want to drive, is that too much to ask?
Ok, now on to happier things, like this card! I don't know what it is about color challenges. Even though I might have used this color combo myself I just can't do it that well when I'm forced to! ;-) I kept wanting to add a color, take out a color, use some yummy patterned paper... well, you get the point.
I embossed some dots onto the brown cardstock. The vellum behind the sentiment is also dry embossed with dots. I love love love polka dots!
Added a fun butterfly made from a flower. The flower had 8 petals and I simple cut off some and glued them onto the middle with a button. Isn't it fun? I *LOVE* that you can turn a simple flower into a butterfly. I hope it looks like a butterfly - it's a little chubby. ;-)
Hope everyone has a lovely day!
