Double Challenge Card

Today's card is a combination of two challenges.  The first challenge is a sketch challenge from the Paper Craft Crew (#32).

My take on this sketch uses an embossed background rather than DSP and more abstract embellishment.  The overall feel of the card is soft and vintage, and I wanted to honor that.  I decided to make a friendship card.

The colors for the card are from the Pals Paper Arts color challenge (#154).  The soft pinks with the crumb cake seemed to match the vintage sketch and made them a perfect match.

To complete the vintage feel of this card I used a pearls.  The decreasing size of the pearls gives a soft feeling that matches the colors.  What would you do with these?

Supplies: MDS2 (#130910), Meant to Be Brush Set, Bloomin Marvelous Brush Set, Artistic Etchings Brush Set, Flag Punch, Perfect Pennant Punch, Oval Punch, Circle Punch, Sweet Details DSP, Pearl Embellishments

Perfect Pennant Punch
Sweet Details DSP
NEW Photopolymer Stamps

We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it.  Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other!  Just click on the photo below to see the first set.
