Last week I was giving my magazines one last look before they got put in the recycling bin; I never start a new month’s edition before tossing the last one. (I have many collections in my life, but not old magazines!)
I’ve told you before how much I love the color ideas Better Homes & Gardens provides each month. The photo above really caught my eye, and I’ll bet you already know why!
Not only was it cleaning day, but I needed a card, so I took that opportunity to challenge myself. How close could I get to the feel and the colors of that photo? Here’s my card:
Stamps: Secret Garden, Paper Pumpkin kit
Ink: VersaMark, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Stampin Write Markers (Raspberry Ripple, Basic Black)
