So I finished this card and the first thing I said to my husband was, "I hate it!" It's growing on me, and as I said to him, it looks better from a distance (LOL), but I really had something much softer in mind. And then I used the black and that was the end of "soft." The raffia helps, but if I were to do it over, I would try Close to Cocoa and see if that tones it down. It's difficult when I have a grand total of 4 pads to choose from, 3 spots and a pack of Bold Brights markers. You'd think it would make it easier *not* having so many things to choose from, huh? I'm really not even a BB person - well, in moderation mixed with other things would be fine - but I got them to work on my daughter's bday invites. Some Soft Subtles are definitely next on the list ... I think a black brad in the center of that flower would have been good also, but, alas, don't have those yet either! :(
Anyway, this was done for SC122 and CC112 for this week.
