RS157, OLS14, Muse 109 - Happy Birthday (National Geographic Style!)
I found myself with an hour this afternoon and decided to make a card (I probably won't get another chance to post again before CASology on Tuesday morning).
I went searching through blogland and found Retro Sketches - I haven't played there in ages! I don't always love sketch challenges, but since this week's sketch is perfect for a CAS card and my good friend Tracey is on the DT, I decided to play along.
I made my card one layer, by sponging the frame onto the white card base. I chose yellow, thinking maybe I could make another Muse card, using the frame element, the theme and the yellow from Marion's whimsical spring card. I figured since it was one-layered, I would only use a sentiment, and also link it up to the current OLS Challenge (Words, Words, Words). I figured I would use blue for my sentiment, to add in another link to Marion's card.
But once I saw the yellow frame on the card base, I got a National Geographic feel and popped over to their website to see how close my design was to their logo. I ended up going very graphic and masculine (but wouldn't it be perfect for someone who is interested in (or even still gets hard copies of) National Georgraphic!).
So there you go. One hour, two colours, two stamps (Uniko Happy, Craft's Meow Birthday), three challenges and more than you ever wanted to know about my thought process!
Now I'm off to bake cookies and start prepping for dinner!
See you Tuesday!
