Last night, I was playing around in the craft room (there is a benefit to insomnia afterall!) and I came across THIS design by the amazing Julie Ebersole who is one of the designers of the Clear & Simple Online class and I fell in love with the simplicity of the design and the banners in conjunction with the circles.
This was my take on her design...
I am loving Real Red from SU! I recently bought it because Ruby Red was too muted (and retired) and Cherry Cobbler was too deep for a primary red. I took the cue from Susan Raihala who thinks real red is the best red ever - I must say, I'm tending to agree!
The banners are from a cheap paper pad I bought at a dollar store (they're all from the same sheet which is great as they're more likely to compliment each other). I am really struggling with using patterned paper on my cards, so this was a much simpler way of attempting it!
Gotta love it when things come together without much effort don't you!
Hope everyone else has a wonderful crafting day!
Cheers, Anne-Marie xxx
