{ippity} 3 on 3

Well, this is one of those cards that I decided I may as well post even if I don't like it so much. I made it for two challenges on Splitcoast: today's color challenge to use perfect plum, baja breeze, and pear pizzazz, and an {ippity} release week challenge, INRC1FALL2010, a 3-on-3 challenge to use 3 different {ippity} images and 3 layers. I was so excited as I planned this out, but now that I'm done it doesn't really do much for me. And the colors just seem so muddy. Ah, well. I still had fun making it, and it will "do" to let someone know I am thinking of him or her, even if it isn't the most spectacular of cards. I guess they can't all be masterpieces, right??

I tried to incorporate a few other challenges as well:
DD's middle school has parent-teacher conferences this week, so she had early release today and will for the rest of the week. We got to have lunch together, just the two of us. How fun!! We made pizza bagels, and she had fun munching on the pepperoni and cheese ingredients while we waited for them to get all melty in the oven. I'm really looking forward to having her company at lunch for the rest of the week!

Well, that's it for me today. I have many more things to cross off on my TO-DO list. Thanks for dropping by today to see what I'm up to!

Like how you flipped the sketch so the corner is on the other side. Great flower and punched corners. Enjoy your mommy/daughter lunches, they are something to treasure in your heart :)

I'm having the same problem today. Nothing looks like I thought it would in the planning! Maybe it's the moon? I love the faux ribbon and the pretty flower. I've yet to come up with something for this color challenge.
