You are….. so not modern

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I tried. I really did. I wanted to make a clean, simple and modern card.

Ultra-hip color combo of grey and yellow. Check.
Graphic type and pattern. Check.

Clean lines, minimal embellishments, generous white space. Umm… veering off the path.

No distressing. Okay, just forget it.

I can’t. I can’t not distress.


Might as well throw in some glitter and imperfect sewing, while I’m at it. Yeesh.

amazing CU

TOO CUTE!! LOVE the yellow and gray together! I see the color combo EVERYWHERE! I am just like you in that I CAN'T NOT distress! I try...but I end up distressing in some way, shape or form.
