Perfect Pink Kiwis...

Hey, that's not my title, that's what this challenge was called on SCS today! I know I say it every week (almost) that I LOVE color (& sketch) challenges and this is no exception. Today's challenge was to use Kiwi Kiss, Perfect Plum and Pink Pirouette. Love this combo! My first thought was Easter, but in the end it turned out to be a friend card. Without further ado, here is my take:

I would call this clean & simple, or "CAS" on Splitcoast. If you like a more clean and simple style like this then you can do a search in the galleries on Splitcoast and type in "CAS" in the search field. Also, if you tend to make cards in this style enter "CAS" in the keywords so others can find it.

Now I have never claimed to execute perfect "craft" as it was called in my graphics design class in college. "Craft" is what is referred to when admiring (or not) the quality of cuts, layers, details etc. My layers are rarely perfectly sized, and don't look too close at my paper piercing. Heck, even my cutting is lovingly "hand-made".

You've probably noticed that I can't seem to make a card these days without something "old" on them. I guess I just roll that way- I enjoy getting more uses out of my stamps that are of retirement age! Hope you don't mind. Starting tomorrow, when I get my first order from this new catty, you won't have to worry about that for a while!

Thanks for stopping by!
