Made these cards Friday night. I got into a new challenge (to me) Mojo Monday and they had a great sketch:
Now that I had my sketch I needed a color palette so I went on over to Create with Connie and Mary and they challenged use to use the following colors:
I wanted to experiment with using mostly designer paper with minimal to no stamping so here was the first card I came up with:
I really love the Everday Elegance DP in the salebration catalog!! I really enjoy the shabby chic/vintage style as you can tell from the card above. The only stamp I used was the filigree image from the Pines and Poinsettias set. I also went heavy on the sponging and tearing. As I was looking at this card I really was thinking about how it would look "cleaner". The clean and simple style is quite nice, but not the easiest style for me. I took another "crack" at it and here is what I came up with:
Same color palette but I replaced the Crumb Cake base with Whisper white and the stamp with the "Thanks" from Kindness Matters.
I like how both cards came out and think I will enter the Shabby chic version for the Connie and Mary challenge and the clean and simple(r) for Mojo Monday. I would love to know what you think!!! Thanks for stopping by!!
