It's time to share the "fruit of my playbor"! I had fun checking out and creating over at Color Throwdown, Retro Sketches, Freshly Made Sketches AND last but not least CASE Study.
First I attempted a card for Color Throwdown, using Retro Sketches #86.
As you can see I didn't work in that 4th color....I guess it was because my patterned paper combo was already pretty busy--just couldn't do it. I do love this paper though it is Close to My Heart Sparkle & Shine, and available in our new little Holiday Gift Guide. You can't really tell in the picture but the houndstooth paper is shiny metallic silver.
So real quick just a few minutes ago I threw this card together. I'm not exactly thrilled with it but I like it ok.
Next I played over at Freshly Made Sketches. I started with color inspiration from the cute covered brad from American Crafts that I had in my stash.
Then I headed over to CASE Study and played there....all that was last night.
If you would like to know more details about what I used for anything just leave a comment below. Thanks a bunch for stopping by!
