ok, so when i saw that there were not one but two gorgeous shades of pink included, i thought for sure i'd be making a really (really!) PINK card. but... oddly enough... that's not what happened. see:
yeah, i know, it's really surprising that somehow i wound up using more yellow and green than pink. all i can say is, go figure! i did use lots of stash though: nearly all my patterned paper is scraps, plus i've got a few different (ancient!) heart brads of unknown origin. there are also some cool basic grey washi strips that i have had for aggggges and only just opened the packet; not to mention the crate paper cardstock diecuts that i promise i have NOT been hoarding... just saving for something special... admittedly for quite an extended period of time, lol.
this card is LOADED with embellies --even by my standards, lol!!! but i found the best layout ever, at stuck?! sketches (feb 15th) and it had sooooooo many fun little elements, i wanted to include as many as possible:
alas, i did not read the rules sufficiently, and it wasn't until i went to link up this morning (tuesday, feb 28th) that i realized that stuck?! only accepts LAYOUTS and not cards or other formats. which is a bit of a pity, i think, but of course it's their right to make any rules they want. regardless, i LOVE the sketch and found it completely inspiring, for which i thank them.
need some help matching the colors in this gorgeous palette? i can tell you offhand that pink paislee's "citrus bliss", heidi swapp's memory planner line and american crafts' dear lizzy "neapolitan" are all GREAT places to start. need more inspiration? check out the glorious SOS dt who are always rockin' it... just for you!
