Hi all! I am SQUEEZING this in under the wire for the gorgeous color combo at Paper Players this week! I really wanted to play this pretty, feminine color combo that LeAnne came up with! Aren't you proud? TWO pink cards in one week?!? I must be feverish or something! ;)
Here's the pretty palette:
So, I don't think that I ever told you, but I WON the fabulous blog candy at Lynn's blog! I was so tickled! TWO fabulous PaperTrey Ink sets (both not available for sale) and some pretty Maya Road gems that look like crystals, I was even MORE tickled when I get the package yesterday, because I LOVE stamps like this, but for some reason I never buy these floral kinds of sets. I really lean far more towards cutesy/funny and sometimes graphic and text stamps. But then I see all these GORGEOUS cards in the blogosphere with these kinds of stamps & wish I had some! So, I thought I'd make Lynn a little note, to say thanks (Lynn, if you're reading this, sorry the cat's out of the bag, but this will be heading your way, SOON!;)
I felt the color combo at PP really was the perfect fit for this card. And, since I am challenging myself to go more CAS these days, do you see that 2/3 of this card is only a SINGLE layer?? so pink, **and** CAS? Wow, I know, you're probably thinking you clicked on someone else's blog! ;)
So, I cut my card from Neenah cardstock, I can't remember what the color is called, but ivory-colored is a good description. I scored the card front into thirds. I stamped the bottom panel with the challenge colors and the sentiment in black in the center panel. Then I had to leave for Pilates & mid legwork (gotta love reformer, I'm pretty sure I'll be in a fair amount of agony tomorrow! Thinking of cards takes my mind off the pain! LOL) I was thinking that a dry embossed matted panel on the top, might be really pretty... So when I got home, I did that, and the final touch was a pretty Prima flower. Pretty simple card, really. Would make a good jumping off point for a mass-production cardfest in the future :)
Have a great weekend!
