i added the smiling, happy pineapple to the bottom right corner of the panel, using pop dots to raise him up a little for added dimension. i used black ink to stamp the sentiment "you're the sweetest" near the top left of the panel. then, the entire panel was adhered to a red-orange card base, coordinating with the color of the pineapple's maracas.

i'm almost half way through this project and while it has been so fun, it has also been super challenging. i mostly create these cards at night when my energy and motivation seems to be highest, but there have been a handful of nights when i've just wanted to stop. to take a day off. to give up.

i only used a few of them instead of the entire background. i love the way the negative space between the bubbles divides them up, yet the color swirls continue from one to the next. 

i'm also slightly obsessed with the color of this envelope and i definitely need to get some of the coordinating cardstock. it's such a gorgeous color and makes me so happy. 

i also die-cut the word "thanks" from shiny black cardstock and layered it on top of the speech bubbles. using one of my favorite gel pens, i outlined the perimeter of the card front.

today was a somewhat mentally taxing day at work and i have to be honest that at the end of the night, i was struggling to complete a card. 

however, i didn't want to give up on myself - or this challenge! so i used a panel from a few weeks ago when i played around with distress ink and decided to use it to create a one of a kind card.

making these types of backgrounds makes me happy because it's so difficult to control the outcome, so i feel like they are good for my creative spirit. i often sit down to create and explore different color combos and end up with the most miraculous results! i then often cut them apart to maximize the amount of cards that i can create. i also believe that because they are so intense, a little goes a long way.
