I ended up making two cards, both using the Beau Chateau DSP, Paper Doily Die and the Elementary Elegance set from the upcoming SAB catalog.
When I am looking for a sketch as inspiration, I usually turn to Mojo Mondays. This is a take on a sketch from a few weeks ago; I rarely enter those challenges though...I am just too intimidated by the talent!
For the first card, I chose the color scheme Soft Suede and Pink Pirouette to pair with the Beau Chateau DSP. The second card focuses on Marina Mist and Soft Suede. Not really too pastel-ly....but definitely birthday cards! I also used vellum as one of the layers, stamping the frame image from Elementary Elegance on vellum in Soft Suede.
So I am about the bite the bullet and invest in a new PC. My laptop is going on four years old and is really not cooperating as of late. I used to use Pinterest but cannot even pin stuff anymore! My printer died as well. While I am excited about new technology...not so excited about getting everything there and reinstalling stuff!
I am also taking the Clean and Simple Card class (ha! already behind!) so I will be posting some of those cards soon!
