Dream


Hello and Happy Wednesday. I think it is Wednesday, but I thought that it was yesterday too, all day I thought it was Wednesday. May is such a crazy busy month for me that I often can't remember if I am coming or going. Anyway, I do have a card to show you. I love this little Riley image, but to be honest, coloring it challenged me a little. Any time there are two objects that are the same color close together like the tree and Riley I have a hard time showing them as separate objects. It took me a while but I was finally happy with the results and think it looks like Riley is sitting under the tree and not like his is a growth coming out of the tree. I thought dream would be a perfect sentiment here and I found this metal tag that did the trick. Papers are DCWV and I used a Fiskars border punch.

I think you did a great job, such a great card and fit anything. Love Riley sitting under the tree and the DP is perfect.

I think about that too, when two things are of the same color, but this turned out great! Your coloring is always the best and this layout is wonderful!
