These are colours I never use. I have no idea why, just one of those things. The Bravo Burgundy is still the original cardstock I bought a couple of years ago, and for some strange reason I must have felt like More Mustard was my own personal in-colour, as I have two new packages stored away. And, I never use them. I love Always Artichoke as a colour, but am stumped as to how to use it creatively.
This card was inspired by a napkin I saw at my friend's house (my good friend, who I am going to convention with) a while back - early January, possibly. The colours on the napkin (scroll to bottom) really popped out at me and I thought the shapes would be interesting on a card.
I used my 1" square punch to punch the shapes, and then punched opposite corners with my corner rounder punch. I love that little punch so much.
It's my father-in-law's birthday in early March, so this will be set aside for him.
