Guide lines 2 LOVE

Okay everyone, I have to share how much I love guidelines 2. I just got it and it was worth all of the wait. This was my first try and it turned out fine. I really want to try more combos and get a feel for each of the images. Needless to say I am so stinking excited to try and play with the possibilities.

I was so glad I had it when I saw this color challenge from Kristina Werner. Wowziers! This was really outside my norm, but it looked perfect for a male color combo.
Here is my take on the color combo.
I am going to send this one off to Randy's Grandpa in Virginia. I think he will like the simplicity of the card. It was really quick and easy to put together. We are both home today not feeling well. We are going to pack and put winter clothes away today. Tomorrow is our last minute shopping day and then we are off.
It's a good life!

What a stunning card, Teri. I can't seem to get as pretty results as you do with Guidelines2. I know we've never met, but when I made my card for this challenge, you popped in my head, just because you so nicely sign your comments on my blog with the same sentiment. It really is a good life and I can't thank God enough for it. Thanks for reminder and the comments on my blog.
