Artfully Ila Sketch Meets Kwerner Color Challenge

Kristina Werner has a great color challege on her blog today--and I actually had all of the colors! They are:

Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Close to Cocoa. I happen to love working with these colors already!


A couple of days ago I participated in a sketch challenge at Artfully Ila. I loved the sketch so much that I decided to use it again in combination with Kristina's color challenge.


I had my friend Kari in mind as I designed this card. Her birthday was on Sunday and I didn't make her a card! It's pretty silly of me to spend time almost daily stamping and creating and then forget to make something for her : P We had a great time going out to dinner at Chili's though! So, here is my Ila/Kwerner/card for Kari creation! You can't see it so much in the photo, but I used Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the frosting and flames. The cake itself is popped up on dimensionals.


Supplies: Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, and Whisper White cardstock; So Saffron and Certainly Celery DSP; Bashful Blue patterned paper and Chocolate Chip scalloped adhesive die cuts from Just 4 You Simply Scrappin' kit; White gel pen for faux stitching; Fun & Fast Notes stamp set; Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery and So Saffron ink with blender pen, Dimensionals (the cake and the blue mat are popped up); Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon; baubles
