I really wanted to make a card for Dawn McVey’s color challenge last week (loved those colors!), but I ran out of time. This week, she picked dark grey, medium pink, bright pink and white. The bright pink is what threw me off; like I mentioned before, I am not a Bold Brights girl at all.
The sketch I used is this week’s SFYTT (Sketch for You to Try) by Jen del Muro (5/9/09). The card base is textured Basic Gray card stock. The image from the A Little Somethin’ hostess set was stamped twice: once with Basic Gray ink (and punched out), and a second time with Pink Passion ink (only the word THANKS was cut out). The 1-3/4″ circle was matted with a die-cut scalloped circle. I stamped the two flourishes in the top corners after the card was already assembled because it seemed to need something up there.
Thanks for stopping by!
