So this card, obviously, is not the one accepted. This is the last of my cards for the Verve 2nd Anniversary Sketch Challenges. This is also the last card I did in a night of 3 cards...so it was a wee bit late when I made this...so don't judge me too hard! I do like parts of it, but as a whole...let's just say it is not my best work! So I chose to try (oh why did I decide to try this one) the SCS Color Challenge #228: Not Quite Navy, Really Rust, and Pretty in Pink. Really? I guess it combines ok, but man was it a tough one...and like I said not 100% pleased. I used the Renaissance Hearts Pendant (the small one) for my main circle...layered onto a larger circle and a scallop circle. I sponged the Really Rust through the die for the funky heart shapes and then sponged the edges of the pendant. This was my attempt to tone down the pink...it just felt so bright up against the Really Rust and Not Quite Navy. The patterned paper is a retired Hostess Prints Pack (on Pretty in Pink). I used the Renaissance Borderabilities along the bottom of the card and sponged Craft Whisper White ink through the die...note to self I need smaller sponge daubers...my normal sponge was a pain in the you know what! I finished off the card with some rhinestone stickers (need more...I have been using these a lot lately!) and some white taffeta ribbon.
Ok I have calmed down a little by typing this, but when I think about getting accepted, I start to shake all over again! So exciting! Well anyway, thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
