Hi again. It's me.
I was going through my blog feeds and I saw that Teresa updated her blog recently and made this really cute card. She posted a card that she made for the Cuttlebug Challenge site. The challenge is to emboss your cardstock and then sand it.
I used some of my Black Magic cardstock for the background on this card. It was such a muted color, that I used some soft pink/mauve cardstock and colors. The colors don't match in the picture but they do in real life. Really they do. I used Odd Bird Planet stamps this time. I used the Birdie Cake and the Happy Birthday sentiment. It's a quick and easy card to make.
Did you know there is a sketch challenge over on the Caardvarks site? It's a really cool one and the winner of this sketch challenge wins a prize! Yep, a prize!!
Go see it - it's very cool. You have until January 17th to get your card entered in the contest.
For my card for the challenge, I used Bombshell Stamps. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew what stamps I wanted to use, but I didn't know what colors I wanted, so I started digging through my folders of paper and found this older kit I hadn't ravaged yet. This is how I choose the colors I want to color my images most times. If I do it the other way around, I have a hard time matching my colored images to paper I have. I colored these images with my Prismacolor pencils. The colors I used are listed in the next picture.Head on over to Caardvarks and check out the sketch and submit your card, too. The more, the merrier!
