Happy Sunday everyone! It is time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! LeAnne is hosting a color challenge this week. The featured colors are Smokey Slate, So Saffron and Seaside Spray.
In the future, I might want to turn the lights on in my craft room when pulling my colors! At the time I created my card, Mink, Sunkiss Yellow and Glacier appeared to be a good match. In the end, Mink was perfect…..while Sunkiss Yellow and Glacier seems to be in a totally different hue! While I might have slightly failed in the color challenge, the colors still totally work for a baby card! My card was created based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches–
I promise the sketch is included in my card, I just added a few things on top of it! To create my card, I cut cardstock to match the sketch and then dry embossed the whole panel after cutting with a stitched panel die. A few stitched frames were added on top to showcase my sweet elephant stamp. I struggled with my sentiment placement, so added a tab on the side for my congrats. The elephant was colored with Prismacolor pencils, blended with Gamsol. A few sequins finish off the design.
