We also did some shopping for my hubby, which doesn't happen to often! He loves to dress up and so he wanted to find a new dress shirt and tie. I have to say, there are quite a few bold colours out there for men's shirts, from pink to purple to neon yellow! We stopped at Tip Top Tailors and found a light purple/greyish shirt with a matching tie. I actually quite like it! It's not too purply (if that's a word) and I think he looks rather handsome in it ;)
As soon as I saw Mojo Monday's sketch, I knew I just had to play along! I love the layout this week.
I decided to create a regular A2 size card using this layout. I stamped the elephant image from the Patterned Occasions stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the Extra-Large Oval punch. It fits perfectly in the embossed oval frame. Flagged pieces of designer paper create the background. Lately, my colour combos seem to resort to pink! I chose Raspberry Ripple as the card base and Blushing Bride as an accent colour. They are so lovely together! Gray striped bakers twine and a gray button is added to embellish the card.
Isn't that little elephant cute? I decided to not put a sentiment on this card, partly because I didn't quite know where to put the sentiment, and because it gives options to use it for any occasion.
Thanks for visiting!
