..... Good morning all! I can't believe that it's already the middle of October and time for our new colour challenge. For the next week and a half, our CR84FN65 colours have a soft, subtle palette of - light pink, tan and cream - so very pretty!
What a super quote we have this week - and so very true!! I like Mark Twain's quotes - sort of pithy!!! Aren't the inspiration photos (courtesy of Martha Stewart) super too? Here's my take on the our colours.
Stamps: Uniko Studio - Pure Florals: Gerbera, Wonderful Washi; Waltzingmouse - French Country
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Stampin' Up! Card - Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, SU Design Paper - Bridesmaid (discontinued); Embossing Powder
I decided to make an anniversary card for my stash. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday - MOJO 262 for the layout, and the big circle suggested a big flower!! So I used this super Gerbera. I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder. To add definition to the flower I rubbed Crumb Cake ink all over the image, wiped off the excess and then fussy cut it out! I used Very Vanilla card to make the base and the little banners. The main panel was made from layers of card and design paper - I like the pattern on this paper, sadly it is no longer available and I'm fast running out!! I finished off with this sweet sentiment in French from WMS French Country - it just seemed to fit.
I've been looking at this card while typing this post and wish I'd added a narrow crumb cake border to all the little banners! Darn!
