My mojo was MIA this morning as my 1st 2 attempts at a tag and a card were awful! So bad, in fact, that I didn't even post them! I took a break and spent the day with my daughter as she independently purchased her own car at the age of 23! I was proud of all the research and planning she had done...her knowledge of cars surpasses many of her guy friends! Oh yes...back to my card...I finally was satisfied with this card for Betty's Color Challenge to use Cajun Craze, Baja Breeze & Wild Wasabi with the option to use a strip sentiment. I was stumped for awhile to know how to incorporate the blue, but finally came up with this idea. I inked up the 2 smallest flower images and stamped with Cajun Craze ink on Cajun Craze CS - gives a subtle pattern without being too bold. A little embossing to add texture to the bottom, and a rickrack die border in Baja Breeze, a layered flower with a fancy copper brad and there you have it.
