JustRite Friday Challenge #079 – “Opposites Attract”

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!

Today I have a project to share, this one comes with a bit of a story…  I have been wanting to make a shadow box card for some time (I had never tried one of these before) so I thought I might make one to enter in one of my favorite challenges  JustRite Friday Challenge #079 – “Opposites Attract”.

The challenge this week is to make a card with “complimentary” colors (colors opposite each other on the color wheel).  The wheel is simply for reference only but you can use any color range – light to dark – to create your card.  I decided to go with Purple and Yellow.  I just love the sharp contrast of these two colors together.

I started out with creating my shadow box card which was a lot of fun and I thought it really added a different look to a traditional card but when I finished it I just felt it was missing something so this is where the story comes in… to make a long story short, one of my friend’s has a loved one in the hospital awaiting some major surgery.  She has been trying to divide her time between being at work and being at the hospital with her loved one every day for the past several weeks.  I thought I would try to make her  a little something that she could bring to the hospital with her and would hopefully cheer her up.  So, my shadow box card turned into a “Thinking of You – Get Well Soon” shadow box/picture frame.  I hope it will bring a smile to her lovely face when I give it to her.

Here is a photo of the shadow box before I framed it.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope you come back again soon.

Have a wonderful weekend!
