Nature sure took a wild hold on life last night. I sure hope everyone who lives in far Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin made it through the storms okay. The warm weather was followed by thunderstorms and tornadoes and my heart goes out to everyone in Wheatfield that lost a house last night. We fared pretty well. There was a lot of flooding around town, but we were not personally affected by it.
I had a chance to sit down and try out the Color Combination today and I started out thinking I'd be unhappy with any outcome. The colors chosen were Wild Wasabi, Barely Banana and Blue Bayou. I was wrong. I love my card! I think I'm going to make a few more to have on hand. The layout is fairly simple and I masked the main image to set the blossoms behind it. I used my horizontal slot punch to allow me to weave the ribbon behind the image before tying it and the larger Word Window surround is hand cut.
