Good morning and welcome to week 5 of my Monday Medley.
This week I am featuring Feeling Sentimental.
This is a nice nostalgic set with a fair bit of potential for masculine cards which is always a good thing. Today, I have a trio of cards; each using one of the images in various color combinations.
The first is a cheery kid's birthday card that makes use of the bicycle and several bright colors. I sort of went with a circus-type look for this one and then realized that the ferris wheel would have probably been a better fit for the style of the card. Oh well...I'll have to take another swing at it and try that next time.
The second is simply a note card but I paired up the phone booth with some fun numeric paper from Pink Paislee, a couple of textures and some punches. I thought the "hello" with the phone booth added a bit of irony to the whole thing... *smiles*
Finally, on the third card I matched the ferris wheel up with some funky paper and two colors (Rich Razzleberry and Summer Starfruit) that truthfully isn't a combo I can say is in my typical wheel house. On the other hand, I love how this card turned out so maybe I need to be a little more daring with my color combos going forward!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great week!
