Old World Ship Collage


Well, things are a bit hectic in our household right now, so I didn't think I was going to get to participate in The Play Date Cafe Challenge this week. As I mentioned in another post I have a lot of birthdays coming up, so I had to make a masculine birthday card anyway so I challenged myself to center them around the colors this week.

The photograph did not take the true colors of the card which is disappointing. The image looks way more rustic and Old World than is showing up in this picture. I am not sure if you can see the difference in the colors from behind the card and what the card is sitting on, but those are the same colors, but yet behind the card is washed out. I tried reshooting it, but I just don't have the right flash and lens right now. One day!

Well, thanks for taking a look and this color combination helped with those masculine cards we tend to put off to the very last minute! J

Look at YOU, Tammy, darlin'! This is such a juicy, crafty, MAN card! (*GASP!) I can practically smell the sea shore from the magical, nautical mood you've created here! This is fabulous! I love how you've been inspired by the PDCC colors - YEE HAW!
