So a dear cyberfriend decides to imigrate from the English Midlands to Canada and this is what I came up with.
I'm doing my best to experiment toward being more CAS (or clean and simple) and I hope this qualifies. I liked the idea of a bright red welcoming door and it also echo'ed the red in the Canadian flag (yeah I really do think things like that!). Plus, I remember when I was looking to sell my own home and how the home improvement shows in England said that red is a welcoming color for a front door!
With moving to a new country, new neighbourhood and new house, I imagine everything is bright and new for my dear friends family even if she is still too far north! makes me shiver just to think about it. LOL That was the thinking behind making the neighborhood nice and colorful.
So here is the finished card, what do you think?
Too much? too little? Truthfully on looking at it now, I'm thinking I should have divided the sentiment and just had one line to keep it cleaner.
Card size - 4.25 x 5.5 inches (Gasp! Shock! Horror! its a small card!)
Cardstock - Neenah, The Paper Source
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps - Stampendous "House and Home"
Copics - R20, R22, R27, R29, Y02, Y06, Y28, B000, B00, B23, B24, C1,C3,C5, BV02, BV04, G14,G17, YR04, YR07
I think it is kinda funny that such a simple looking card used so many color variations!
