I got a bit of time to play again yesterday. This card is based on a lovely little card that I saw here, made by Jodi-Danielle Kutz http://jodikutz.blogspot.com/2010/03/got-little-done-today.html . I switched out a few things, including the colors (I wanted them to match my color challenge from Sunday). I really like both cards. What do you think?
Tip for working with "threes" (see last picture above): First, line up the outer two items, making sure that the borders are equal distances from the edge of the paper. Then you can 'split the difference' by centering the 3rd item between the two. I love using this tip because it always makes things look like they're centered perfectly!!!!
