I like to play along with a few different creative challenges when I get the chance. And they are a perfect starting point if I need to create a specific card and need a little inspiration. These most recent HSS challenge, HSSSC#317, was perfect for some thank you cards I wanted for my recent BOGO orders.
It allowed me to try out some of the new products I hadn't used yet and of course, some of the old favourites! This card started with the sentiment and the Birch Background stamp and then went from there. I wanted one of the new ribbons that was a bit thinner which brought in the Mint Macaron color scheme and the DSP and embellishments were added based on that. I love how the new Designer Elements embellishments tie in the Sahara Sand from the DSP. I wasn't sold on them to start but I love them here and think they offset the mini flower embellishment nicely.
This card was quick to put together and I'm looking forward to making 5 or so more!
Here is the sketch I followed.
You can see I pretty much followed it to a T.
