Ariana and Delicate Wings...

Working on cards for my monthly Card Club and I love to use "challenges" to help me focus (sometimes I have too many ideas and not enough paper!).  Challenges are not only helpful but also a lot of fun.

Products I used to make this cards are the very pretty Ariana Paper Packet, the sentiment is from the Joyful Birthday Stamp Set (B1419) and the current Petite Perks - Delicate Wings (ask me how you can get yours free!) for the stamped images. All stamping was done in Indian Corn Blue Ink and all products are from Close To My Heart.
 Some of the challenges that inspired me for this card are:

Heart 2 Heart Challenges: Pantone Spring 2014 Color Challenge
The challenge is to use one (or more) of the Pantone Spring 2014 colors on your project; only neutrals such as white, cream, tan, gray, or black may also be used. I feel the Ariana Colour palette and the Indian Corn Blue that I used for the stamping fall into the colour palette used in the Pantone Spring 2014 nicely.

This challenge is for "No Square cards", must be A2 size and "No lumpy, bumpy cards".  Elements of the cards needs to be relatively flat (no thinker than 1/4") and "Anythings Goes" with regards to design, colour, etc.

Once again anything goes as long as you use stamps and it makes you think Spring!
The sketch was the starting point for this card, it turned out a bit different but the elements are there!

Anything goes Birthday Card with the option of adding "stitches" either faux or real. This card does not have the stiching but it is a birthday card!

Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate your comments!

Happy Crafting.
