You & Me…

Inside today’s card there are so many things you could say…like, “are perfect together”, “friends forever”, “go together like…”  But it definitely would make a great anniversary card.

Many times I’ve said masking is my favorite technique…but if I had to give a No. 2 favorite, it would be embossing.  It’s instant and beautiful with very little work.

Here’s todays card…

  1. Another you have another pretty card for us. I love these colors together although they are out of my normal comfort zone. When I see them on your card, I think “oh yeah, they look so nice together and the Sugar Plum really makes it pop. The pineapple “b-ism” is perfect for the new SU pineapple items and would also be perfect for the quote inside a card using the pineapple theme. Have a great day!

    • I’ve been trying different color combinations with the new InColors. My favorite color is green, but I seem to be having more trouble with this new green Emerald Envy. Just haven found a combo that works yet…B!
