The rain has finally stopped for a couple of days (woohoo! Though now that I've said that it will probably start raining again any minute now) and I'm still playing around with the new In Colors and getting a feel for some new color combinations.
My husband's grandmother's birthday is next week, so I asked him what her favorite colors are and he doesn't know. Neither do his parents, so hubs said to use purple and green (which are my favorite colors). I added a bit of yellow because I thought it worked. So for this card I used Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, and the sentiment is Blackberry Bliss because it's like a much darker version of Sweet Sugarplum.
I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:
I actually did put my sentiment on a banner, but both it and the card front are Thick Whisper White so it's hard to tell in the photo above. I really should work on getting better photos of my cards.
Anyway, I'm also entering this over at Retro Rubber:
I got Summer Silhouettes in 2012, so it's four years old and it's retiring. The birthday sentiment is from Rose Wonder so that's not retro at all ;)
Well kids, I've got errands to run, so that's it for me today. See you tomorrow for the Friday Flashback!
