Before I get to my challenge card, I just want to thank everyone who takes time out to visit my little corner of blogland and leave such wonderful comments. I have been so busy this past while that I have really not been able to properly return the favour, but I want you all to know how much it makes my day that you take time out to leave some love. I promise to return the favour more properly soon!
I have been trying to build up an arsenal of birthday cards because one of my resolutions for this year was to send more out... I have missed 2 birthdays since the New Year, but they were both people who really wouldn't have noticed, so I don't feel *too* guilty. Still... I aim to do better!
This week's colours are cool, and very soothing. I loved the inspiration board as soon as I saw it:
Gorgeous, right? Here is my take:
This card made me realize how little grey I have in my stash of goodies. Lucky for me, I found a wonderful vintage grey button in my jar, and I had grey thread to sew with. Perfect! I wanted this card to be a much cooler, more lilac feel to it, but when I was done, the pink had won the battle.
