Oops, so it's been a whole week since I've posted! :(
I sooooo did not get to relax this weekend, because we had to go grocery shopping, get the dog a bath, go to my in-laws, go out to dinner... Some of that was fun, but not relaxing. I'm so wiped, I went to bed at 6pm on Monday! Tomorrow I get a real day OFF so I'm excited!! Hopefully I'll be stamping my little heart out!
Anyway, on to my latest card! This is my entry for KWerner's Color Inspiration Challenge #50! This time she's even giving out prizes! I don't think much of my work is prize-worthy, but you never know... ;)
This card reminds me of a circus, with all the primary colors and such. I envision this card being used for a 3-year-old boy's birthday or something. It's just so fun and bright (and unisex, which is difficult to accomplish!).
Ever since I got the Darling Dots Stamp Set (the only Level 1 Hostess set I like), I've wanted to use this layout. I think it's fun and easy and I'll probably have more cards using this set and layout soon. This is also the first time I've used paper-piercing, and I love it! I'm trying to work my way up to more sophisticated looks, but I like how this turned out. I also used the Cutter Kit to distress the edges of the white panel of cardstock.
Since I'm such a perfectionist (which is why it usually takes me a week to finally finish making a card!), I like everything to be parallel, perpendicular, in-line, etc. So when the "celebrate" was kind of slanted I wanted to freak. So I tilted the "time to" so hopefully no one would notice... which I'm guessing you didn't until I pointed it out... :)
Sorry for such a wordy post. Tomorrow I will have more challenge entries and less babble! Yay!
