Challenge Card

So I'm working on pushing myself to get better. I know I have a long way to go before I can come up with some of the really neat stuff I know is in my lil' brain somewhere. So practice, practice, practice!

Here's a card for two challenges, the Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday and the Card Patterns challenge #106.

I really like this layout, the colors were a little more tricky. I wanted to put a lot more color into this but I really did want to see if I could stick to the colors in the inspiration photo and challenge myself to work with what was there. What I did take from the inspiration photo was the simplicity, the understated-ness (is that a word?) of it.

The layout was something different. I think I will use it again and I already have some new ideas on what I want to do to add to it.

I'm waiting for a multipurpose platform for my Big Shot before I can use all the dies I just got in the mail. This is papercrafters' torture - having a bunch of fun stuff you want to use but have one missing (and critical) piece. Do you know what's worse? I ordered it two weeks ago! Let's all cross our fingers and hope it comes in the mail tomorrow (if you're reading this, you're either a friend or love papercrafting so please, cross with me!).

See you!


  1. My fingers & toes are's agonizing waiting for stuff to come in the mail :)
    If understated-ness is not a word, it should be. I say we keep it. I will try to use it this week too, and we should get it to catch on! lol
    Love your beautiful, simple, elegant card :)

  2. Fingers crossed!!! I love the card, gorgeous!

  3. Love this sweet card. The muted colors are wonderful. So glad you could play along with us on Card Patterns this week!

  4. I'm thinking that you're already making some really neat stuff! :)
