Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #8: Father's Day
Whoa--judging by the noise outside my window, the Lakers must have just won the NBA championship. Woo. Hoo. (Can you tell I'm not a pro basketball fan, LOL!) Today I'm playing along with the nice bunch at Papertrey Paper Dolls and their 8th challenge, a color challenge. When I saw the colors I thought: Wow, I *never* would have put those three colors all together. Now THAT'S a challenge, way out of my comfort zone. You know what? I ended up loving the combo. I used it for my dad's Father's Day card, and I think it looks even a little bit . . . sophisticated? Not the card necessarily, but the colors. I think my dad'll . . . well, he'll compliment the card and then it will go live in his sock drawer with all the others . . . but I mean, I could write "Happy FD" on a paper bag and he'd treasure it, but I'll know that this year, he gets a cool card! :-) (Please forgive atrocious punctuation. Thank you.) Thanks Lee Anne, for pushing me to stretch my boundaries this week!
