November 7, 2012

Came up with this card for two challenges this week. A sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches - I just couldn't get a circle shape to work out right so I substituted with the tabbed rectangle from the Apothecary framelits. But I definitely kept it clean (I even refrained from using an embossing folder on the card front portion)! And a color challenge from Color Throwdown - I hope I have time to do another one before the deadline because I feel like that combo has so much potential!
This card is going to the staff of Harvest Bible Chapel of Peoria for all their hard work and dedication to get us moved into our new church building before our Grand Opening THIS Sunday!!!

Paper: Lucky LimeAde, old, old Night of Navy DSP (yay, used a bit more DSP!), Basic Black, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Tools: Big Shot, Apothecary framelits, Stripes EF, Little Leaves Sizzlit
Embellishments: SAB Brads

I made this card based on the sketch challenge over at Just Add Ink this week. I always get so excited about DSPs ... then take forever to actually use them! I'm pretty sure my problem is that I over-think the situation when I try to use it on a card. I end up talking myself out of using any DSP, then my supply keeps building. :) But, I kept it simple and used a bit for this one.

Stamps: A Little Birthday Cheer, A Slice of Life
Ink: VersaMark, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point
Paper: SAB Ice Cream Parlor DSP, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Tools: Scallop Border punch, heat tool
Embellishments: SAB buttons, 3/8" Daffodil Delight Taffeta ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Tangerine Tango EP
