As much as I
I digress. Sorry, I'm awful good at that, aren't I? ;-)
Anyways, today's card is interesting.
No challenges to follow, just a stamped image leftover from yesterday's post. So, I have this image to color, and I start coloring it with bright (not me) colors, and I like it. But then...I can't decide how to finish it into a card! Do you ever suffer from such problems? Ugh...I messed around a bit too much with this, and I'm OK with how it turned out. Not elated, but not downtrodden, either. ;-)
I will rectify that. Remember, you've been warned. ;-)
To me, it obviously needs a sentiment stamped in brown. Nothing I thought of looked quite right, and I wasn't about to ruin the whole thing (and all my time) by stamping something just to stamp something.
I'm thinking a very small 'happy birthday' or something...either directly on the cardstock, or on a punched piece of vanilla cardstock. We shall see.
The ribbon is behind the vanilla cardstock, wrapped around the back of the chocolate chip layer, and tied together at the punched-out portion. This goes directly against my grain of 'saving' ribbon/$. How? I never waste ribbon that you can't see, but I decided this time, for the look I wanted, that's what I was going to do (eek).
Okay, so how did I come up with the post name?
Simple: The designer paper is an old one (yay!) called Petal Prints & Paisley or something like that. The color of this specific piece is Old Olive. The flowers, they remind me of a flower garden. Hence, Olive Gardens (not to be confused with the restaurant - partly why I added an 's'). ;-)
Well, what do you think?
