My upline, Brian King, is part of a design team that has started a new challenge, and I decided to play along! The challenge was to use three colors: pink pirouette, smoky slate and so saffron. I was all ready to get started when I realized that I didn’t have any smoky slate paper, and I never got around to ordering the smoky slate ink pad–oops! I was beginning to panic until I remembered that a past My PaperPumpkin kit had used Smoky Slate, so I started rooting through my stack of orange boxes, and thankfully found the inkspot and an unused card base. Whew!
Now–this is not a color combination that I would have thought of on my own, and I had to play around with the layout a little bit, but I admit that I am really happy with the end result! For the sentiment, I know it looks a little washed out–the ink spot was probably a bit dry, but it does add some extra contrast! I had the label bracket punch laying on my desk from another project, and I just happened to try it out-and it fit! I like the different look. I did pop the sentiment up with dimentionals. The pink butterfly helps fill in the big blank area in the upper right of the card–you could also use a flower, but I’m on a butterfly kick these days! A few pearls for some bling, and I think it is perfect!
