This week Jitterbuggin' focuses on pastels for their challenge. I don't use pastels very often, so it really was fun to go through my paper and think about what colors I wanted to use. In addition the recipe for the challenge called for the use of their sketch, a button and a Cricut cut sentiment.
I decided to go with a light green and create a thank you card. I cut the flower out in six different sizes using my Design Studio software and Walk In My Garden cartridge. After they were cut out I embossed them with various Cuddlebug folders. I distressed the edges with light green ink and add a button to the center. I have to say, I LOVE buttons. I have mine all sorted out my color and I have so much fun "shopping" for just the right one! I used a Fiskars border punch to cut out some coordinating green paper that was distressed with just a hint of pastel blue ink. I added a shear ribbon and some gems to create my "lines" in the sketch. I stamped the white card with some great swirls and distressed the edges of the card with light green ink. Finally, I added my sentiment to the bottom, cut out from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge. There you have it, a pastel green card with a button in the middle and "thanks" written below.
