with thanks to my Starbucks sleeve, I couldn't resist using it as the focal for my card today. Thank you, graphic designer! I've had this idea percolating in my brain since DH treated me to a gingerbread latte last Sunday. And it all came together nicely for the 365 Card Blog Day 275 A Novel Idea, SplitcoastStampers CC 299, and Card Patterns Sketch 92.
The Day 275 Challenge was a picture of the novel, The Secret Garden with the girl dressed in red stopped to pass a note through the garden wall. Perhaps a story about her life.
The Color Challenge on SCS this week was Real Red, Old Olive and River Rock.
Neutral of your choice and for the Dessert Option, Christmas theme.
And last, but certainly not least as this is the foundation of my card,
the Sketch from Card Patterns 92. I did reverse the layout to make it work for my graphic paper and the cup sleeve. I used the back side for the vertical panels...corrugated cardboard.
Being a homeschooling family, we read all the classics, including The Secret Garden. And our rule is no movie version if the book hasn't been read. I can remember taking my oldest son to see The Indian in the Cupboard when he was 5. During the show, he kept saying. "Mom, they are leaving this or that out...it's not as good as the book!" And even today, with them up and grown...we still read the book before the movie...
Thanks so much for stopping over to visit today, I'd love it if you would leave the gift of a story before you go.
