A cheerful Monday card..

Monday already?!? It comes so much quicker than Friday, right? A quick post tonight – had to squeeze this into for my last entry for the color challenges over at Moxie Fab World.

This card is for the Jewel Tones Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World. The sketch is based on the Sketchy Sunday sketch over at Tiffany’s blog, Iheartart - one of my absolute fave places to visit!

I’ve included both of these pics as I’m just getting used to doing a little photo editing and I honestly can’t decided which is better – the first is compeletely natural light & no changes to the image. The 2nd is using the ‘auto-fix’ feature on Picasa – then a little manipulation to the ‘temperature’. Not sure how any of that works! So, any good photographers out there – which image is better??

As I used a bow for a CAS card, I’m also submitting it for the Pals Paper Arts current ‘bow’ challenge. The cheerful yellow was inspired by the sunflower image over at Just Add Ink. Lastly, its going in for the Anything Goes challenge over at The Paper Players.
Here are all the inspiration pics:

    Rachel this really appeals to my clean and simple loving soul! I love the fact that the bow perfectly borders the sentiment to bring even more focus to it. I also love the way you used the colors from the Paper Crafts challenge. (I bought this copy of the magazine – really wonderful inspiration :-)). So pleased you joined the Paper Players again this week with your second card. Really gorgeous
