It took me most of the day yesterday to procrastinate into not working on the scrapbook. I did however clean the house, clean the hot tub, load 382 songs into iTunes, and run into town for an emergency vet trip (thankful to report all is well currently.) I had every intention of ... oh well. If you've read any of my previous posts you already have a good idea that my favorite pass time is procrastination.
Upon returning home from the vet I realized my day was shot. Well, most of it. I went over to Splitcoast to get some inspiration for a quick birthday card. Love it! I went straight to Tuesday's color challenge CC188, picked one stamp set and went to work, having only 10 minutes to create. Down to the stamp room I flew in a hurray, brushing obstacles on my desk aside (we all do that, right?) I got down to business. Having slept on it, I think I would use different ribbon- it's a little too bold for the image, don'tcha think?
Stamps: Party Hearty
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Glimmer Mist, EP
Instead of inking the dots part of the cuttlebug folder, I inked the flat side with classic ink, which somehow made the white cs appear shimmery (don't ask me how). I rubbed the pretty in pink over the dots to make them stand out more. The main image is embossed and layered. I used the Glimmer Mist over the main image piece, which I don't think shows up here.
I think I'll revamp this card over the next couple of days to see what I can do with it. Input is always welcome.
