Celebrate Today!

What an appropriate title for today's card...Celebrate Today!  It was my dad and mom's anniversary, so I wanted to make them something special.  Right now I'm working on sponging, so I wanted to make a nice scene for them.  I think I need to work on figuring out some different scenes, but for now this will have to do.  Since I started their card so late I went looking for a bit of help.  I liked the colors for this week's Paper Players color challenge, so I quickly pulled them out and got to work!  Since sponging makes my colors mix a little I knew I would end up with a hint of green on my card too.  I have no idea why I think this, but a card just doesn't seem right if it doesn't have any green on it.  Ok, I don't think that of all my cards, but I do think that about a lot of them that I make.  Maybe some of you have this weird obsession too...there has to be a certain color to make things just right. lol





Thanks for looking and have a great day!

  1. Gorgeous! I love the branch framing the side of the beautiful scenery!
    I went through a spell where I felt I needed to sponge soft suede on every card, but I don't know if I use a specific color for every card...
