Good Evening Friends!
I made today's creation for Kelly, one of my downline members who's birthday is on Thursday. This card is on it's way to her as I type this & I do hope she likes it!!! I took a peek at this week's Mojo Sketch & quickly decided that this layout would totally work for me!!! I think it's great for showcasing whatever DSP you're using & in my case; I'm using the new Spice Cake DSP that will be available on Thursday. Honestly, I'm in love with this pack of paper & that's a first for me when it comes to Fall designs LOL! Seriously though; all the patterns & colors are very appealing and tastefully put together so this pack of DSP is definitely a winner for me!!!!
After I had the layout figured out; everything else fell together rather quickly. I used the new Gently Falling stampset along with Happiest Birthday Wishes & I think they *gelled* together quite nicely. I also *distressed* the edges of my DSP to help distinguish the layers a bit--I felt they were running together & since I was mailing it....wanted to keep the card as FLAT as possible! My last minute touches besides decorating the inside were to add the pearls to the corners, medallion & make my leaf sparkle--sorry you can't really see it in the photo!!!
Well, I need to get back to my Open House goodies so I'm off! Thanks so much for stopping by tonight & have a great rest of the evening !!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
