AAA cards #20. Inspired by Julia

Hi there!

Challenge time at AAA cards !

This time our own JULIA provides the inspiration for the week:




So much to work with... but if you struggle to case someone else's work... here's my approach:

I look at the card and think...

1) How would I make this card, using the supplies and tools I have available?

2) Which elements catch my eye first?

3) How can I apply the elements in my own style?

Keeping that in mind, here's my take on Julia's card:




So... you can see :

1) Supplies and tools available : colored card stock , my Silhouette , and my computer ( for the               sentiment.

2) Elements chosen: colors , squared sentiment, sunburst.

3) Done in my (mostly) graphic CAS style.

I really hope that will be helpful advice!

Here's my sentiment... shared with you!




Thanks so much for looking... hope to see you play at AAA cards this week!

Een hele mooie kaart! Die tekst eromheen maakt het af, maar de zonnige kleuren geven het een super blikvanger! Groetjes, Gerrina
