Joyous Dove

Color Hues #54 Navy and Cream

The challenge at Color Hues helped me to remember that I have this intricate Dove die, from Creative Expression and I thought it would be perfect to cut in cream and then add it to the Navy card base. I had seen a photograph of a black and white tile with a section of the tile in thin white stripes and that gave me the idea to cut some stripes from the cream CS and add them to the corner. The die cut word uses some old gold paper and a Spellbinders word and using the same gold and infinity dies from Hero Arts, I used the smallest star and cut 3 for added interest. I like the simplicity of this card and the cream CS is slightly embossed which gives a nice look to the bird and stripes but it only shows to the touch or with the naked eye.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your different weather conditions don’t make life challenging. It is quite cold here at the moment and they are predicting a snow storm for tomorrow.

  1. Thanks Gayle. I’m about to use the negative part later if my upper back stops aching. I seem to have pulled a muscle in my shoulder and it hurts. It is snowing again today and is cold and wintery outside. Suits my mood LOL.
