Simply Soft Suede

I'm playing along with this week's Clean and Simple challenge on Splitcoast - yeah! I haven't had a chance to do the last couple of challenges, so I'm thankful that I had a little time tonight to put this card together.

This week's challenge is to choose a piece of artwork from for inspiration. I just have to say - what a cool web site this is! I immediately gravitated to the abstract prints, especially the ones with circles of one kind or another. I finally chose this print by Karen Lorena Parker called Aqua Lily Pads. I followed the layout of the print, but stuck with all brown tones, and I couldn't resist using the new Cirlce Circus stamp set. I love the sepia look of this card - all those browns together make for a warm, "chocolaty" feel. It would also make a great masculine card!

Well, today did not go quite as planned for me. My little guy has strep and was running a fever of 104.1 this afternoon. That was enough to put my worry cells into overdrive! He's on his meds now and should be on the mend soon - I have to say that I am SO thankful that it was not the flu, as the Urgent Care doc first suspected. Hopefully tomorrow will be a little less exciting for us! :)

Any card that reminds me of a chocolate is a winner with me!

So sorry to hear Jevin has been sick! That's quite a high fever. I hope he is starting to feel better by now, and hope his li'l sister doesn't catch it. Laurie
