Lizzie Anne Designs' Team Challenge and 50% Off Sale!


 This month for Lizzie Anne Designs' team challenge, we have a color inspiration as seen at left. Don't you love these colors? I'd love to have this room! Predominantly mint and beige, with touches of pink and yellow. My card was slightly more than "touched" with pink, but I'm still happy with the result. This was my first opportunity to break into my "Vintage Birthday" Little Bits set, and I used one image and two sentiments from this set. I also created a pink "lace" border using the border stamp from "Timeless Textures" Sixlets set. Unbelievable, with all the paper I happen to have, I didn't have a true mint green, just a darker jade green. So I created my card base from this and dry-brushed ivory acrylic paint over it to tone down the color and add some texture. I stamped the birthday sentiment over the MME plaid border, and paper-pieced the hot air balloon from the same paper. This was popped up on layers of Nestie die cut scalloped ovals that were run through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug embossing folder. Another Nestie die created the ribbon banner with the appropriate sentiment. I love that all the sets of Lizzie Anne Designs images have a variety to work with and make sense with each other at the same time! Go check out their site to see what I'm referring to. BTW, the are running a huge 50% off retired images sale right now. Trust me...you'll want them all! Be sure to check out the rest of the team blogs for more LAD inspiration. You'll be saying "WOW" on each page! Don't forget to leave comments for all of us. We live for validation! LOL
