Hey y'all. Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. I know I did, filled with lots of friends and down-time and a little creative time thrown in. (Although there never seems to be enough of that!)
I was looking for my normal MDS challenge site to have a new challenge up but they hadn't posted one, so I used a regular sketch challenge from the same site. Normally I don't use my MDS projects for challenges, but because I felt like I really challenged myself on this card I decided to.
Do you use lots of different patterns of DSP when you create your cards or projects? I don't usually. I always struggle with which ones to put together. Normally my projects just have one pattern of DSP in them. I think it's the OCD in me that doesn't like the un-matched aspect. Even with this card, the only way I was able to combine these patterns was because the two outside were both kind of "florally" and had circles. Silly, I know but it's just so hard for me to do! I always love how others use DSP, but somehow trying to use multiples just causes me to "vapor-lock" creatively. There's a session at convention this year on creating with DSP...I am sooo in that session!
Oh well, I did try to mix it up with this project. You'll have to let me know what you think. The Scaredy Cat in me was stressing over this, but I tried anyways. Here's today's card-
|MDS Happy Day Card|
I used this sketch from Utah Divas Saturday Sketch Challenge for my inspiration-
I stuck right to the sketch for my card. The only extras were the little flowers and brad, that I added, that were part of the MDS Designer Kit I used. I know it say it a lot, but I really love the drop shadow feature. It adds such dimension to your projects it's hard to immediately recognize that it's not cardstock.
Here's the inside-
All the elements for the inside of this card were from the same kit. I think it's just so bright and cheery! Hopefully when I flake and miss someone's birthday and can't send a card by mail in time, they will be excited by receiving this in their in-box instead!
Well, that's all I have for you today. I hope you liked my attempt at combining DSP's. If you did, I hope you'll take a moment to let me know what you thought. I love hearing from you! Also, if you liked it and wanted to +1 or Pin it, I've put the buttons on my side-bar for your convenience. Friends and Followers are always welcome too. :)
I hope you'll come back soon to see what I've got for you!
Till next time-
