Happy Dreams

I really loved this set, Happy Harmony, that was only available during Sell-a-bration earlier this year. I've been wanting to use it again for a while and finally decided on something it would work well with, though an old faithful layout. While shuffling through my salvaged papers I decided that these two worked quite nicely together and made for a quick(er) card. The flowers and sentiment have been inked using Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac and Old Olive markers. The card base is Elegant Eggplant, with layers of Going Grey and more Elegant Eggplant. The ribbon is from Spotlight, and the brad is Doodlebug Lilac.

Then I decided to remake the card, but give it a tweak. I have this compulsion for putting darker colours at the bottom of a card (to 'ground' things I guess). So for the next card I flipped things around, and used a Plum brad instead. I think I like the second one slightly better as it's a but more unusual and interesting to my mind.

In other news, we finally picked up our new lounges today. YAY! It's nice to actually have something to sit on again.

Just happened upon your sight. I kept moving between the two cards. It is hard to believe how different each card looks with that change. I like them both each is different in its own way.
