Hashtag Happy

Saturday, April 19, 2014

My sister's birthday is today and I started making a card for her on Tuesday.  It's been a busy week at work and each night when I got home I only had so much steam before I ran out so it took me until Friday to get this done.  Ack!  Hopefully next week, I'll be a bit better prepared.

The good news is that I really like this card that I made using the sketch at Cardabilities and the colors from The Color Throwdown.  I combined a little clean style grunge with a floral and leafy accent.



Busy day ahead for me so I'm keeping this short and sweet.  If you celebrate Easter I hope that you have a lovely one with your family.  And thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Summer Silhouettes (SU); Hashtags (Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous); DIY (Precious Remembrance)
Paper:  Solar White (Neenah); Basic Gray, Whisper White, Urban Garden DSP (SU)
Ink:  Basic Gray, Gumball Green, Melon Mambo (SU)
Accessories:  First Place Ribbon die (My Favorite Things); Cambridge Court enamel dots (My Mind's Eye); Pretty Pink Color Mist (Mister Huey's)

The flowers are so pretty - and beautifully accented by the grid. The splashes and dots of pinks are a great touch.
