RSG ~ A card in thirds!


Hello friends!

I hope your weekend is off to a good start!

I'm posting another card that is late is for the Ready, Set, Go challenge!

Barb and Jeanette already posted their cards earlier

and I'm still doing this thing that pairs well with mustard ...

it's called catch up!


Jeanette is the hostess this month and her challenge involved some math ..

the one subject I was never good at!

Here's her challenge:

October is the month that two members of our trio celebrate birthdays. It seems fitting that we in some way incorporate that into our RSG theme… but it’s NOT a birthday theme. Instead, I’m challenging us to think of the card in thirds – and two-thirds of it needs to be the focal area. (There are lots of ways to process that idea, so let your imagination flow!)


BUT… there’s more! We don’t want to leave the other part of our trio out, and since her birthday is 5 months away, I also want you to add FIVE of something on your card (think embellishments, layers, or whatever!  Ready, Set, Go!

Such a fun challenge!  Unfortunately for me, my brain saw this and said:  

Make a card with only 2/3 of the card done

and didn't realize the instructions were two 1/3 panels!

I created a card with 2/3 of it done - and left a wee bit of it undone,

as in 1/3 not done.


Yeah.  Me, too!  Hee hee!

Alas, here's my card ...

I won't have time to create a new one so I'm just going to wing it.

I started with a watercolor background panel - made with simple smooshing

ink pads around on my media mat and spritzing it with water.

I've used an image from Purple Onion Designs  called Snowy Trio

and I stamped it right onto the panel, then die cut it out

and layered it right on another stamped image on the white cardstock, layered.

Then, I remember the 5 elements so I added 5 clear sequins

and some wink of stella on the hats.

And that's my card for this month!

                                You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here on their blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs, bigger blessings :)

  2. Math was never my best subject either, but I see the two thirds on your card, rather than the 2/3rds - it's all in the interpretation but I think this turned out to be a super cute and fun card, and I love the lavender frame!

  3. Kelly, first you crack me up because you had the theme exactly right and didn't know it. I'm sorry I confused you with my math.

    Now about your card - oh my if it isn't the cutest ever! Love love LOVE it! The way you used the subtly blended panel is awesome!
