Things Working Out

Don't you love it when things just seem to work out perfectly? A bit ago, I came across a new-to-me blogger. Nicole blogs as Frau Vogeli, and as soon as I'd seen her first card, I knew I'd be back for more peeks! Do take a minute to pop over and see her sweet cards; I promise you'll love them. Her latest offering is entered into a new-to-me challenge, and I thought I would support them by making and entering a card; the challenge is called Task For Two Tuesday. I knew what I wanted to make, but needed a bit of a color inspiration. Color Throwdown provided the perfect color palette for me! And as things worked out, today's CAS(E) This Sketch provided some help in the design department. Pretty slick how things just seemed to click into place today! Yay!

Task for Two Tuesday - CHALLENGE


My card looks like this:


I stamped a panel with some MME and SC stamps using three different inks. I cut the panel with an ME die, and added a SC 'celebrate' die in black. I popped everything on an orange base. Pretty EZPZ, and I love how things just worked out! Happy Dances everyone!!

I just love all over background stamping, and it is such a pretty example of it. Love the scalloped edges you added and the very fun celebrate die cut.

WOW times a kazillion! This is gorgeous pal! I LOVE how the bold, black sentiment pops against your 'I was sure it was DP' panel. Nice touch with the dainty scalloped border.
