One of my blogging doldrums is a slow laptop. I've asked Santa for a new one because mine just slogs along and makes it impossible to multi task, especially if my Silhouette software is up and running. I know, whine, whine, whine. Because of my slow laptop, it's taken me several days to enter a new-to-me challenge blog - The Cutting Edge. There's a great design team and lots if inspiration, so I wanted to play along in the latest challenge (#9) with this card as inspiration:
I was inspired by the bright colors against the gray background. I've had a piece of velvet gray paper on my desk for a while and used it as the background for my card here:
I stamped and embossed the flowers and used my Silhouette to cut the background leaves. I made the Hello sentiment with my sketch pens, which I love. It's so easy to pop out the blade, insert the pens and sketch away!
I did want to embellish a bit more, but stopped myself to keep it clean and simple.
Thanks for stopping by!
