Pastel Card

Hello All!

For today I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch and Color Throwdown. Both blogs were very influential and a wealth of inspiration.. Here is my card. Enjoy!

HUG just for you!
Entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown: ctd363
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS #144


Used the ombre effect for 'hug' by using
paint chips and die cutting the letters.

This weekend we finally finished our kitchen.. By finished I mean we (me and my husband) got done with the painting portion of the remodel.. Just for a bit of perspective our contractor was done with demo, install, and finishes in 10 days.. For us prepping, patching, priming, and finally painting took 21 days.. Well not really weekends were the only time we had to work on it so let's whittle that down 4 weekends so 12 days.. Hummm doesn't sound so bad when you look at this way... Anyway when all is said and done, it is a beautiful kitchen..

So I am at our local paint store and I'm biding my time for the long awaited paint color. So of course I looked at paint chips and had my inspiration! So hopped on the Color Throwdown blog and grabbed the challenge color chips and here is the card... I really do like the way it turned out..

That should do it for me. It is time to go shoe shopping for my son in preparations for a long winter. Leave a comment if you'd like; I would love to hear what you have to say. Take care and have a great day everyone and we will see you soon. 

All the Best,
