Hello again! Trying to stay caught up with the daily challenges over at PTI for their 8th Anniversary celebration! This challenge is choosing a color recipe card and a sketch recipe card from several different ones listed, and then coming up with a card. I picked what I thought was a fairly simple sketch to follow, and of course you know how that goes! Take a look:
You're probably wondering what could be so difficult about a layout like this, and for probably 99% of the population it wouldn't be. For me though, I'm too anal about everything lining up perfectly and the background HAPPY BIRTHDAY is what gave me fits and 5 different tries! I think I need to invest in some of those acrylic blocks that have the grid lines on them to make lining up things easier! After that, the card was a breeze. It's also a little more sparkly IRL, as I used a Wink of Stella pen on the white parts of the petals. I embossed with clear embossing powder the HAPPY BIRTHDAY on the Hawaiian Shores banner, so that adds a little more shine to the card too. :0)
Stamps used: Pretty Petals, & Keep It Simple: Birthday
