CPS #183

Today might as well have been Happy Lazy Day, instead of Happy Labor Day. I woke up with good intentions to go to the 9:30 AM spin class, but fell back asleep. Whoops. I went on a run around this neighborhood instead before dinner to get some exercise in. When I was going up the hill towards the house, I heard a car slowing down behind me. I turned my head and it was my cousin and aunt. "Go, go, Tina!" My family is funny. :)

Here's today's card, inspired by CPS #183. The little lines on the side confused me. What am I supposed to do with that? I kinda just mushed that space together with some kraft tags that were sitting on my desk. Next time, I'll pick a color that matches the left panel more. Maybe red? The kraft, although neutral, kinda brings the color factor down a notch. I think the little elements on the tags tied the everything together in the end.
