Oooooooh look I made a card on a Wednesday! Probably because I didn't go to the gym today. I felt like I was busybusybusy all day long yesterday and I kinda felt like I needed a little break, especially since I did still take my doglets for a walk this morning. But anyway, it's been good to spend some time in the craft cave today! And still playing with new toys :D
Friends, meet the Sale-a-Bration set Avant Garden. It's photopolymer, so I stamped the flowers without using my Stamp-a-ma-jig...except for the stamens part. And the sentiment, because it's a pet peeve when my sentiments are crooked. But the flowers, leaves and stems? All unaided.
Thought I'd go with a nice, simple floral CAS card to go with the current Paper Players challenge:
And the pastel color palette at the Color Throwdown seemed like a natural match for that:
I used Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette, and Pool Party for my colors. Hmm, the swatch there makes the pink look more like Blushing Bride, but Pink Pirouette tends to be forgotten in color challenges and I personally like it better than Blushing Bride :p
At the last minute I had to add some teeny pearls to the flowers so once again I can enter at Cupcake Inspirations:
I have to say, it would be pretty awesome to have some darker half-back pearls from Stampin' Up! to go with the regular pearl-colored pearls. Not black, but like a gunmetal color? Preeeetttyyyy.
Well, if I leave now I can go pick up dog food before traffic gets too wild and crazy. Cheers, y'all!
