You bring me joy .......

All the different challenges over at  The Moxie Fab World  had me wondering how many design principles I could  include  on just one  single card, I challenged myself to get thinking and design something along that thought process and here is what I came up with.....

The colors were inspired by  the Play Date Cafe # 147

I have tried to use 5 different design principles -

focal point with the bird , leaves and the sentiment in the' Sweet Spot'....,

movement  with the leaves angled , I feel the eye starts with left side of card since the bird is looking that way  and then you follow the leaves to the right and out of the card.....

 repetition with the sentiment stamped in a lighter grey on the background and the bird and the 3 grey branch die cuts

 and  the asymmetry principle

I guess it fits the Gallon- pink , Quart - grey and Pint- greens,  design element but I was not too sure!...might have pushed it too far!...(edited..... after kelly left me a wonderful comment   ..I have gone ahead and shared with that challenge too.)

Did I achieve it ? you tell me!

    Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp challenge.

  7. Ooooh, just saw your card. I did the same thing, for this challenge too, with trying to combine a bunch of the different design principles from Moxie Fab World. I think you actually have a fifth design principle here too ... asymmetry, right? I totally followed your principles (even the movement one, which I think is the hardest). For the gallon/quart/pint one, I might even say your pink is the gallon color since the whole background is pink and just the edges/branches/medallion are grey. don't know. And I LOVE how you stamped right on top of the diecut branches! I haven't seen that before. Will have to keep it in mind. It really makes the branches more of a background and less of a design element like diecuts usually are. Love it!

    1. Kelly thanks for taking the time to comment means a lot to me and I truly appreciate it!.

      I think you are right with the gallon color and might go back and edit my post and about the asymmetry that you mention it and I am looking at the card ..yes you are right and I might link it up there. thanks!

  8. just brilliant, seems so simple but but close up so complex. I love the diversity of your design/colour and flow> you are very talented.
