Throwdown a big thank you!!


Hello all!
I wanted to say a big thank to my Aunt for treating us to an AMAZING Disney cruise! Saying thank you in the most sincere way, I believe, is why cards were invented.

I didn't want the card to be 'in your face' Disney but also didn't want to ignore that fact either. The colors from the ColorThrowdown #328 challenge were absolutely perfect for this occasion of thanks. Thank you so much for inspiration..

Entering challenge:
Color ThrowDown Challenge #328
CTD328
Here is what I came up with:
I thought using negative space for the Mickey mouse ears was an appropriate place to put the sentiment.

Just a little bit of bling dots for some magical sparkle.
This color challenge was perfect for this card!!
very nautical'ish. Just love it!!
Size: A2- 5.5" x 4.25"
Here is a good shot of the negative space of Mickey's ear.
Using temporary adhesive, I closed the card
to avoid too many shadows.



I know she is going to love this card.  Just a special thank you for a special family that I am so grateful to be a part of.  (misting)... Thank you so much for stopping by and we will see you again..

Take care and see you soon!!

Wow, I really love the wavy lines that reference your waves on the sea and then the sentiment in the negative space is just genius! What a fun and special card! So glad you were able to play along with us at Color Throwdown!
