Pals Paper Arts posted their most recent color challenge (#186) just as I was starting on a thank you card to send to our very dear ex-neighbor (Good morning! I know you are reading with your coffee!) who moved away this past summer. I was already incorporating a photo of her dog, Josie (Josie has been gone a few years).
Odd, you say, to include a photo of someone’s dog on a thank you card? The segue here is that Offspring3 and I were talking about how much we miss the neighbors that moved, and then, of course, how much we miss Josie (we dog sat, pinch hit whenever necessary). My friend gave me permission to use this image (I took the photo, but Josie was her dog!) here on my blog.
The colors for the challenge are Island Indigo, Gold, and White. When I printed the photo of Josie (from 2009), the wallpaper really looked more Island Indigo than the actual green that it was in person.
Supplies: Paper – Papertrey Ink White, Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold, Island Indigo, embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing/die (butterfly) – Stampin’ Up!, corner punch – Stampin’ Up!, enamel dot – Stampin’ Up!, organdy ribbon – JoAnn’s.
