Helloooo there, stamping friends! Well, that was a lengthy hiatus I took from blogging, wasn't it? Yikes! Long story short, I got really sick last weekend with some cold/flu-like illness which knocked me out for the count. Honestly, the LAST thing I was thinking about was being crafty, in between sneezing, fevers and just feeling icky. I'm not 100% yet, but yesterday I did get into my neglected craft room to attempt a project.
This week at Dynamic Duos, we have a soft and subtle color combo which features two of my favorites: Pool Party and Lucky Limeade.Freshly Made Sketches blog, I was hooked! I LOVE layouts with repeated elements, especially in 3's. I did move my sentiment from where it was placed on the sketch, because it seemed to fit on my card.
I wanted to create a clean card, focusing on the colors, so I decided to use the Floral Fusion die for the focal images. I use this die A LOT! I embossed the Pool Party layers on the flowers and dressed them up with some coordinating brads. I felt like it needed a little more, so out came the pearls. Honestly, it is not my favorite card EVER...but I made it under the influence of cold meds, so that alone has to grant me some forgiveness...I hope! :)
Please join us this week at Dynamic Duos! The rest of the Design Team has created some gorgeous projects for this challenge, so please stop by and say hello. The challenge is open through Thursday, March 14th at Noon (PDT). Have a HAPPY day!
