When I first saw this bright colour combination for this week, my first thought was: "Darn, I used Cheep Talk last week" LOL! Being low on energy after a week of swimming laps didn't help much either. However, despite my reeking of chlorine, having a high fatigue factor, and basically no mojo, I pressed on :)
Just loved Mercy's sketch this week so I was bound and determined to use it. After much fiddling around with what to put in the circle, I opted to make a flower (I know, surprise, surprise LOL!). Out came the punches and voila, a flower was born. I Swiss Dotted the center of the flower as well as the white panel and in a stroke of genius (well, in my mind it was anyway LOL!) I used the leaves from Best Blossoms on the turquoise panel (it really is turquoise, the photo changed it on me!!) so they looked like they were coming out of the flower. Some yellow ribbon and white half pearls finished things off nicely.
The rest of the Curtain Call Crew have some samples for you along with our August Guest Designer, Teresa Kline.
