Ooops! Ever have one of those "why didn't I double-check?" moments?
I had one last night as I prepared to link up my DT offering for this week's Dynamic Duos Soft & Subtle challenge. Here's the badge:
Blushing Bride (✔) and Pistachio Pudding...
Maybe it's because I am not a Stampin' Up demonstrator (although I DO have a catalog with all the SU colour listed), maybe it's an old-age-creeping-up thing, maybe its that darned SU alliteration, anyway, I had it lodged in my head that the second colour was Pool Party.
So here's what I made:
Isn't that a cute card?
I felt a little guilty already, as the beautiful DP (one of Close to My Heart's new paper packs, Balloon Ride) did all the work. Then I went to link up with the other DT member's creations, and found the second colour was actually a shade of light green...back to the drawing board.
So here's Take #2:
In the interests of time, I used essentially the same card design, subbing in some old retired CTMH cardstock (Kiwi, I think) and another new DP, Ariana (so pretty!) which has the green as well as the required soft pink. The focal image stamp is from the Ariana Workshop-on-the-Go kit. I just added a little shading with Copic Markers and some Wink of Stella for shine.
Some more juicy sequins from Verve and voilà, epic save!
I used Kraft cardstock and Cashmere ink as my neutral. Also some Color-ready seam binding ribbon and Blossom twine from the Twinery. The little heart at the bottom is another new CTMH set, Doodle Signs.
This card will get tucked into my husband's suitcase when he travels to Texas at the end of the month.
