I Just Couldn't Decide.
I actually made these two cards early last week when the latest CR84FN Collor Challenge went live. I was instantly smitten with the color combination and the inspiration images showcasing Light Blue, Turquoise, and Neutral. Yum. I delayed in posting my entry though, simply because I couldn't decide which one to enter. Sigh. Seeing that the fortnight entry period was starting to draw to a close, I didn't want my dithering to have me miss the boat entirely. So, apologies in advance for the two entries, but what's a girl to do?
I made the Happy Birthday card first and then the Coffee Shared card just after. Funnily enough, they aren't all that dissimiliar really. Papertrey Ink Stamps were used across both cards (save the Stampington & Co. Sheet Music Woodblock on the first). I employed Ad Sense and Warm Happiness stamp sets. I can't recall where the pattern papers were from. I'm kind of thinking October afternoon and Authentique? Hazards of dipping into your scrap bucket I guess. The cardstock used is the sublime Papertery Ink though, that I do know. I had major issues photographing these two cards and watermarking them also proved rather interesting, hence the variations in size and general poor imaging. I am starting to think I am not meant to post or enter these cards, period. *shifty* Maybe they're cursed? Or I'm cursed? Dunno? Ack! I give up. Sorry. *wink*
