I’ve been following the CR84FN Color Challenge for a few weeks and decided to play along with an actual card, rather than just in my head.
This week’s color combination reminded me of an idea that I had wanted to try. The first attempt was okay, but I knew that something was missing. (I took the card apart before photographing it, so you will not be seeing it. Believe me when I say that your world won’t come to an end.) Then I remembered this photograph from the same collection as this week’s CR84FN challenge.
Now, I knew what was missing – gingham. As I started to reassemble my card, a phrase from a Donny and Marie song popped into my head. For those of you of a certain age, do you recall the Donny & Marie show? Well, I wanted to be Marie, except for the giving up caffeine part, and as an ode to her, here is my card, entitled “a little bit country.”
Perhaps next week, I might try to channel my inner rocker.
