Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  It's the start of another week and really the only pleasure Monday holds for me is the Paper Pretties post.  I don't look forward to my job because it's usually full of TONS of calls from mostly grumpy people.  It really does make it hard to get up and go when you know you're just going to get yelled at all day long.  Oh well, it is what it is and I am happy to have a job.  That's most important.  Got to keep my eyes on the right things.

Here's a right to look at - this week's challenge at Pretty Pretties.  This week we're doing one of my least favorite.


Bright colors and I don't seem to get along very well - but I gave it my best shot.  Please be kind.

I created this card using a cute image by ARTish called Cirque.  And a great layout from iSpySketches.  I pulled out an old embossing folder that I've not played with in a long time.  And some paper scraps that worked pretty well.

Image:  Cirque
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Brilliant Blue, Yo-Yo Yellow

Embellishments:  kelly green grosgrain ribbon (Offray)

But those colours are perfect for that clown! Super bright & cheery :)
I'm sorry that you are the one getting yelled at :( I always wonder why people think that's ok - and I understand frustration, but since when is the person at the front desk or the one answering the phone the person who's really at fault? They don't pay you enough.
