OLW Unexpected Colors

Wednesday, August 11, 2010


This week's focus of One-Layer Wednesday is using unexpected colors in place of a traditional color scheme. I chose Valentine's day which is traditionally represented with red, pink, and purple. I chose blue because blue is my favorite color, my bridesmaids wore blue, and my engagement ring is a sapphire. To me blue represents love so this is what I came up with.
Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by.

Cardstock: PTI Rustic Cream

Ink: PTI Spring Rain, Memento Brown

Stamps: PTI Heart Prints and Library Ledger
