What's Happening?

What's Happening?

I'll be honest, not happy with trying to do pastels tonight.
But trying is bettering,
 so I will keep at it!
NEVER stop trying, and don't be afraid to post your lesser moments. 
 You will be able to look back see your growth that way!
 
This isn't BOLD enough for my taste, I need MORE vibrant watermelony orangey pink!
I will have to take another running stab at it!
 
Thanks for looking!

Well Kimberly,I think its a good card-great layout.When you are used to working in brighter more vibrant colours as you do it will seem strange to see softer more muted shades on your layout-doesn't mean it isnt a lovely card though :)And you are so right- we should be brave and post the ones we don't like as much(i'll just go get some out of the bin now LOL!)as that's how we impove our cardmaking techniques.

Great card Kimberly! I know that you said that you're not into the pastels right now, but I like it! It's fresh and fun.

what a soft and fresh take on the Watermelon Wonder challenge! reminds me of a collage of old postage stamps with a bit of a victorian feel! thanks so much for playing along at the Curtain Call...cant' wait to see your bold and bright take on it next:)

You are too hard on yourself...I think these colors are perfect for the watermelon wonder challenge. The colors are nearly identical to the photo image. Very nice card.
