Pride (in the name of LOVE)

Sometimes weird card making ideas come to me in the middle of the night - like 3 am (stupid brain).

This was one of them.

Back story - one of my super awesome co-workers and her partner got engaged at Pride Toronto a few weeks ago!

I knew I wanted to make them an engagement card. 

While I should have been sleeping, my poor wee brain was formulating making a congratulations card utilizing the colours of the Pride flag!! 

YAY, sometimes my wee brain has a good idea! 

Here's what it came up with:

In retrospect I wish I had used a different green or blue, the two seem to just meld into each other without as much contrast as I was hoping for.

Nonetheless I am super happy with how this one came out and I am sending out much love and happiness to the newly engaged L & A

Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers & Wilted Violet distress inks (Tim Holtz)
  • Black Tuxedo ink (Memento)
  • Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (SU)
  • Sentiment Sampler stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Fishtail / Banner die set (Your Next Stamp)

I am super impressed that you REMEMBERED your 3 am idea! I'm sure all my best ideas are lost between the 3 am thought and the later-morning wake-up. :P P.S. Your idea was awesome!
