A Different Birthday Card

Hello Everyone. I’m in blogland again! I have been here before but life decided it wouldn’t let me continue but I was determined to get back here again.

I don’t know if I’m the only one but how do you feel about being pushed outside your comfort zone? I don’t like it at all – I feel all awkward and I also feel like I am walking on a tightrope. This is a little how I felt about the Color Throwdown challenge that is up at the moment. Don’t get me wrong I love these colors but I wanted to push myself with this combo – I don’t usually go dark hues I am usually work in the lighter hues.  So I pushed myself to go darker and I am actually happy with the results.
A different Bday Card1Since I was going outside of my comfort zone I decided to fall back on a definite favorite of mine and that is starting with a sketch and Case this Sketch came to the rescue. Then I searched my stash for a paper pack that I could use with the color challenge.  I found in my stash a paper pack from Kasiercraft called “13th Hour” and I liked some of the papers and thought I could use it for my challenges.

Here’s a close up of the card

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation.  If you could think about liking my post so that I know that you stopped by that would be great. Also if you have a question or wish to leave a comment about my creation please don’t hesitate to so down below.

And I leave you with this thought for today:
