A little different

Every so often, I really enjoy creating a card that is a different size. This one is 3"x6". (I only wish envelopes were easier to find!) So, can you tell how much fun I'm having with these Patio Pots from Karen Lockhart? They're so much fun to color - just take a look at those petunias! Here I paired it up with one of the sweet new sentiments from the latest release - Friends. It's perfect for creating a 'just because' card for someone special in your life. I placed the sentiment on the inside, and created an aperture using a Nestabilities die. You may notice those cute gloves, too; they're paper-pieced in! Aren't they an adorable touch? I chose green to balance the green in the leaves(since there is not any other green in the card). It's a good tip to remember.

I hope this gives you a little inspiration for trying something a little different! Have a wonderful weekend. Be well,

Love that card Jenn- the 3" x 6 is so cute! And I'm not a big purple fan but it's very nice with the green- good move.
