Wishing You Well
It's not often that I try to make 'pretty' cards rather than cute cards ;) Though I love the look of pretty cards, they always seem formal to me, like I'm making wedding cards or something, lol. I made this card for two challenges, the Cupcake Insprirations challenge which features a lovely spring cupcake, and the ESS #120 sketch. The colors in the cupcake are so gorgeous, and just from looking at it I knew I'd be making something a bit out of my usual zone. Sure enough, putting this card together was really out of my zone. I had almost no purple paper and cardstock, which didn't really surprise me since I rarely use it, but I also had almost no green papers as well. That was a surprise given that I find green goes with quite a bit! In the end it was the stamps that pulled off this card, which aren't my usual image stamps of late either, and thank goodness I at least have a decent range of inks, lol. So now I've got to get back to working on my social-cultural analysis paper, but this was definitely a nice break from all my homework! Enjoy the card and have a lovely Sunday!
