I love how sometimes I see a sketch, and I create my card/project almost exactly the same and then other times it turns into something that still has the base elements but is not at all how I had planned it! That happened with this sketch for AHSC. I started out with so many ideas (good sketches do that, give you tons of ideas) and then while playing with my many ideas this card was the outcome.
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.
