Soft & Sweet...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

Today I decided to try combining a few challenges to see what I could manage, and I was lucky enough to find three that were exactly what I needed. For the sketch, this week's Mojo Monday (#96) was just perfect, and the Penny Black Saturday Challenge (#58) suggested I make something "soft and sweet," encouraging soft and sweet textures, images, and colors. I tried out a new technique, faux suede, on some Blush Blossom cardstock. For that little something extra, Our Creative Corner challenged everyone to make a card using at least three embellishments, with a specific list. For this card, I chose ribbon, some pewter brads, and a cute little green button.
