Today I just decided to play and see where it led me. It led to two awesome challenges. Freshly Made Sketches had a simply beautiful sketch to work with. You can find the challenge here. But the just look at that sketch. It was such fun to play with.
Along with the sketch, I found a color palette I thought looked fun to use. So through another blog, I found this challenge over at Jaded Blossom using this color combo.
I decided to combine the two. I then created two cards since I had everything out. The cardstock I used for the background came out of the So-So Sweet 4x6 paper pack by The Paper Studio. The rest of the paper were scraps out of my bin. The circles and squares were die cut with stitched dies. I added a simple stamped flower using Distress Oxide Broken China, Stamping Up! Pacific Point and Garden Green. I stamped a simple sentiment using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. For a nice simple touch, I added Liquid Mercury Nuvo Crystal drops. The finished card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I am entering the first card in the two challenges mentioned.
I love how these turned out. They are simple and look put together without much bulk so these are good ones to send through the mail. Hope you enjoyed them too. See ya next time!
