Hello there! Do you ever wonder whether I just fell asleep on my keyboard when coming up with my post titles? *heehee* Sorry for all of the acronyms, but I just find it much more efficient to list the challenges represented in each post so that I can find them easily later on. I try to remember to spell them out for you in the body of each post, but if I forget you can always ask!
Today's card is for the sketch challenge at Everything but the Kitchen Sink, which is ending today. I also used the newest color combo from the Color Throwdown.
I used a paper doily from Martha Stewart layered with a patterned paper scalloped circle and one of my crochet flowers. I added a third layer of "petals" to this one in Spring Moss. The Spring Moss cardstock at the bottom is actually stamped in white with Background Basics: Text Style and impressed with the Linen & Canvas impression plate. I thought I was all done but it looked a bit too symmetrical, so I stuck three pearls on the bottom corner.
If you're looking for the Saffron, I substituted a Lemon Tart button from PTI in the center of the flower. I also thought the orangey stripes in the patterned paper were yellow, so that goes to show you how rainy and gray it is here today! Also, the lighting at my craft table is terrible, but I'm not sure what type of light I should get. I'm curious about the Ott-Lites I've seen at Jo-Ann, so if any of you have experience with them or any other light you can recommend, please let me know!
