You Fill My Thoughts

For my next trick I tried combining two challenges, Color Throwdown:

and the Tuesday Morning Sketch:

I also decided to take some inspiration from several of the too many cards I have pinned on my Pinterest Cards board. I figured it was about time to do something with it instead of just swoon. I tried several different things until I ended up with this:

It took me forever, and I'm not feeling the love. I thought maybe it was the lack of contrast with the die-cut, so I tried this:

Meh. About the only thing I do like about these cards is the scoring:

Getting the score lines to be raised on the card front is a trick we learned in one of the CAS2 Online Card Classes, and I love it. I thought the sentiment looked ungrounded, so I added the score lines instead of anything with color.

Eh, I'm going back to try something else. Maybe it will involve paint. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
