Thank goodness for the extended deadlines this year, because the Blue & Gold Banquet really ate up my yesterday!
The Day 7 challenge for the Papertrey Ink 8th Anniversary festivities was to use nothing but metallic and neutral materials. So, here’s my take on that:
I’m not quite sure about this one, honestly. I had a difficult time working with only metallic and neutral elements, going through about 3 other ideas first before finally settling on this design. I used some never-before-used supplies for this one, as well, finally breaking out my cute little pink box of sequins and such from the Shakers & Sprinkles Make-It Market Kit that I purchased a while ago. I’ve been slowly trying to learn how to make shaker cards, but it has come with MUCH trial and error for me.
I couldn’t quite decide on how to place the shaker element, when my little PrincessM – who has really taken to making her own cards lately – walked by and suggested that I tilt the panel a little. So I went with that, since I’m feeling all ‘decisioned’ out after a lot of party planning the last few months.
Not my favorite card, but not too bad, I suppose.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
