In The Pink With Lexi's Creations!
Whoo Hoo! I'm Guest Designer at Lexi's Creations for their current challenge! I was able to choose the image for my card, and I chose this cutie. Her name is Melissa and she can be found in Lexi's Creations store, here. She's so cute and girly and she's doing one of my favorite things--Shopping! Lexi has so many cute images in her store. Stop by and check out all of her designs... You will love them! I hope you will stop by Lexi's Creations this week and take part in their challenge. Hop on over and share a creation with us and you could win a great prize for playing along!
For the card layout, I used last week's sketch at Catch The Bug. I realized after I created the card, that the sketch challenge would be over by the time I posted my card--Opposie! LOL)
I decided to go with a pink girly color scheme, with touches of yellow and peach These are wonderful summery colors, too! The image was colored with Promarkers. I used four different background papers, all from my stash, The plaid background paper has squares, and I embellished with the little acrylic circles called skittles that I dyed myself with alcohol inks. The skittles provide texture. Hopefully this card qualifies as having squares and circles, for the challenge at Crafty Angels.
I love the image and the sketch I used. This was such a fun card to make. It reminds me of how Carrie Bradshaw loves to shop in the movie Sex & The City 2. (Can you tell I just recently seen that movie?!) Shopping is one of the best things in life and a great way to celebrate anything!
EDIT: I was told that my card doesn't fit one of the challenges that I entered it into.... yet the inspiration photo has pink in it. Hmm Makes no sens to me :)
