Day 184: Still going even a day late

Even though the 4th of July was yesterday, people where I live seem to have forgotten that because they are still lighting off fireworks tonight. BTW…it’s after 11:00 p.m. here.

I have no idea why anyone would have leftover fireworks to burn, but they should have used them all up last night.

Anyhow, enough about my complaining about fireworks going off and onto the Thank You card!

I was inspired by two different things today: an outfit I saw online and fireworks still going off at my house. Today’s color combination is more subdued than yesterday’s and no, I didn’t plan on creating another red, white and blue card. Actually, today’s color combination include a cream, brick red, and a lighter blue. The circle pattern represents my noisy and ridiculous neighbors that keep lighting fireworks off, a day late.

Personally, I’m more happier with today’s card design than the one I created yesterday. I think yesterday’s design felt too amateurish and in your face. Today’s design feels more graphic and grounded. I’m trying to refine my design style while continuing to explore others, and I really wish I had done something different for yesterday’s card.

But you know what?

There’s nothing I can do about it now because it’s already done and out there for the world to see. So, now I just have to work even harder and smarter on the cards and not revert backwards.

Okay, I know you’re tired of reading my babble.

Here is today’s card.
