I have spent a good portion of my day in the kitchen baking bars and cakes for retirement party tommorrow that I am co-hosting. I already made a card for the school community to sign and realized I had not made a card to go with the gift I am personally giving.
I made this card after finding two challenges I can submit it to... CCCC (Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge) #19 at More Than Favors blog and the Wacky Wednesday #39 challenge also at More Than Favors. Hummm. So The CCCC was to use the cart New Arrivals and the Wacky Wednesday was to use the colors Pink, Brown, Teal, and Cream. Of course the sun has set and I had to photograph the card with a flash so the colors don't show true but I did use the correct colors! The Congratulations layered circle (brown with beige layer) are from the New Arrival cart and the baker's twine is teal. The gold square was cut with Fiskars border punch to give it the stitched look. The pink pattern was dry embossed with the moroccan screen cuttlebug folder and in person you can see just a hint of teal on the pattern that I chalked on the folder before embossing. Now I think the card looks like it's ready to give as a baby girl card but it does look nice with the white gift bag for the retirement gift!
