Card for dh

Ok, this card took me all day long to make. I made this for dh *just because* and had to keep running into my room to do things one piece at a time under the disguise of doing laundry. Ironically enough, he was surprised when he saw it :-) He had no idea what I was doing.

The card base is Summer Sun and the bottom piece is Cameo Coral. I'm still loving this color combo and think it's perfect for summer. The color is a little off because I couldn't find a good, well-lit spot when I took the pic and I played around a little with some photo editing software to try to fix it but the bottom part still looks too pink to me. The sentiment and focal image are both from Amuse and are on Whisper White and matted to Old Olive. I used Brilliance Rocket Red Gold and colored in the suit with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Both of these are mounted on pop dots. The ribbon is from Michael's. I didn't want to do too much to it because it was for dh.

I'll be back later with the winner of the Oval Punch. I'm having a hard time accessing the comments on blogger at work--I get put into an endless loop :-) Hopefully, I'll also have some new stuff to post because I'm getting the new In Colors today along with the Pick a Petal stamp set.

Have a great day!
