Thoughtful Flowers

Don't you hate it when you wake up with a giant headache?  That's me today.  Lucky for me I'd made this card yesterday afternoon so I still have something to post right now.


The colors are courtesy of the Global Design Project challenge:


And I got the layout from the latest Retro Sketch:


And voila, it was done.  I did discover in the making of this card that if you ink up a stamp with Soft Sky ink, stamp it off once, and then stamp it on something you're working on, the color comes out looking like old dirty dishwater.  Yet another reason why we should ditch Soft Sky and bring back Baja Breeze.

As an extra special bonus today, here's something I stole off Facebook that I've been meaning to email to my mom but I keep forgetting.


I don't know who made up this chart, nor do I remember who I stole it from on Facebook, but I thought Mom would like to see it since she's got a crush on Snape.  Teehee.

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Butterfly Basics, Best Thoughts, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink:  Basic Gray, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky
Paper:  Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Accessories:  Subtles Candy Dots

Sorry you've had a headache. No wonder you didn't want to get on the computer.
