I used this week's sketch from Stamping 411 for the inspiration for my card. I love the colors I used. I don't know that I have ever tried Ruby Red and Regal Rose together. However, since I was using the paper (Candy Shop, I think?) I tried to get what went together the best and obviously that was Ruby Red and Regal Rose. I also like the rounded diagonal corners. It is a technique that I occassionally employ on my own, but haven't in a while, so I was thrilled when I noticed that aspect of this week's sketch. I also stretched myself a little bit when I used cut the combo of coaster and paper for my card. I don't think I have ever managed to incorporate that technique into any of my cards to where I actually liked the way it looked. BUT I like it today. :D I think this will be a birthday card for one of my aunts. I am trying to make cards for the entire year ahead so that I will be able to send cards out with out having to frantically make cards at the last moment. (I reallly DON'T like doing that)
P.S. I would love to have new followers to my blog.
