This is my second post today. I could wait and post this tomorrow, but sometimes Monday's are crazy with work, so I'm taking the opportunity today.
I love to do sketch challenges. Yesterday after I finished the Halloween card I posted earlier, I looked to see what the girls at CAS(E) this Sketch had for us. It took me awhile to figure out what stamps I had that would work. I'm sure I have several, but for some reason I was stuck. After pulling out some sets that are stored behind others, I found this Merry Mini's set from last year that I hadn't even put together so I placed it on my stamping desk with plans for today. On Sundays, the first blog I always check is The Paper Player's blog. I usually try to play along each week. Today Jaydee has a color challenge for us and I thought the colors would be perfect for the Merry Mini's stamps.
I used SU DSP for the background. I originally was going to use just a white card background, but I liked the color better. The dies are from MFT and some bright gold sequins adds some sparkle.
I kept the inside simple and in the same color palette:
I realize that a few of the DT members used the CTS as well. I thought about trying to come up with a different card, but went with my original plan. Great minds think alike, right ladies.
