Wish Big Card
I have had a great time working on her challenges at her blog this week. I didn't do them all, as I found this site about half-way through, but it did inspire me to try some...I expand my spectrum of creativity when I force myself to use colors I wouldn't think of, or sketches I hadn't considered.
This was a sketch that required a small image or phrase in the center of a card. Once I found the phrase in the Short & Sweet set, I used the little cupcakes to embellish the work. Colored with markers, I used tiny dots of Red PolyMark (from Walmart and it's cheap!) to pop up the cherries.
For the Barely Banana background I stamped the retired background stamp called "Birthday Greetings" with So Saffron ink. Seriously lacking the sugary sparkle it needed, I used a stray ribbon from my drawer and topped it off, with a real bow...which is funny for me though, because I am usually a 'knotty' girl!
Off to another card post!
