Everything but the kitchen sink....

Today I challenged myself to use at least three different patterned papers and a new color combination to make a card.

This one has everything but the kitchen sink on it!

It took me some time to find the papers since I'm color challenged!  The photo doesn't really show the dimension on the card front.  I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out and feel like it looks pretty good for something I came up with! LOL!

I decided to add some vellum, inked the edges of the rectangles, used my Scor-Pal on the white square and inked that too.  The cupcake was colored with Promarkers, cut out and pop-dotted for dimension, there are silver stickles on the icing swirls.  I added some dots of pink Stickles on the background and wound some twine over the edge.



From design to finish, the first card probably took me at least two hours.  Now, my brain is tired from thinking, it's almost Happy Hour at Sonic and I'm going to go get a Route 44 Diet Coke!  {For those of you who live in an area without a Sonic Drive-In, you have my sympathies! LOL!)

so pretty....and I don't think you are anywhere near color challenged. Your cards are always so coordinated! Our Sonic is over an hour away so I'll have Happy hour at home! Enjoy!
