This is a card I did using the color challenge from last week and a sketch I found at Scrap Maps. They are great and have lots of sketches for scrapbook pages and cards. Another creativity booster.

The colors for this card are lavender lace, pink passion and gable green. These colors were different for me and I found myself wanting to use the white gel pen (lots) to soften the colors and tie it all together. The stamp sets are Hip Hip Hooray and Polka dots and Paisley (for the dots on the pink). I didn't have any brads in the colors I was using so I embossed them with versamark and lavender EP (they were silver brads). I found that when embossing on metal it doesn't take as long because it heats up faster and stays hot longer so be careful. Also tweezers are a must when embossing brads.

As you can see I am still on the white gel pen kick. We'll see if the next card has any on it.
