Whew! What a fun cardmaking day I had yesterday! I'm so glad SCS kept Dare to Get Dirty in July so I can play along! I ended up making 3 cards yesterday, with a fourth one planned to finish up this morning.
Dawn's Color Cue Challenge 6: vanilla, coral (Berry Sorbert here), kraft, and brown. Oh, how I love a Neapolitan color combo. Funny story: my wedding was a Neapolitan wedding and my wedding cake was white with pink & brown stripes. 6 months later, I give my parents their album, and my dad shows it off to his friends. He calls me up and says, "Did you know that your cake matched the bridesmaid's dresses? I didn't until a lady pointed it out to me!" Ah, men and their lack of recognizing a theme.
One more item before I start explaining this card: I must give props to Dawn of Wplus9. I was stamping my stamping index when I noticed there was a manufacturing defect on one of the stamps (there was an extra dollop of plastic so it wouldn't stamp right). I emailed her, ready to provide pictures and/or send the set back. Instead she replied that she would be sending along a replacement straightaway, and when I get the package, she had sent an entire replacement set! So I will be taking the perfect stamp out and sending the rest to my sister in my attempts to get her to come to the dark side. Yea for fantastic customer service!
Whew, now onto the card making deets: I stamped my now-perfect big leaf image from Wplus9 Woodgrain Silhouette Additions on PTI Berry Sorbet with PTI Vintage Cream for the background, and stamped the flowers from Woodgrain Silhouettes. The brown paper is another flocked piece from My Mind's Eye Lush collection. I used my new SU Butterfly embosslet to make the butterfly from October Afternoon paper, adding three self-adhesive pearls. The sentiment is from PTI Delightful Dahlia, stamped with Rich Cocoa onto PTI Cream, notched with a square punch. A cute little bow from some generic kraft colored ribbon finished it off!
I'm seeing quite a few familiar faces over on the DTGD challenges--aren't they fun and inspiring? If you're a fan club member, be sure to check 'em out!
