Hey y'all. Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was fabulous except for a little hitch Saturday afternoon. Our team meeting was a blast and I'll have my swap from the meeting to show you a little bit later on. Saturday evening I sat down and worked on some cards and a few more yesterday. I even ran for 45 minutes yesterday. Yea Shan! Ok so my run is not a lot faster than my walk, but it still counts right!?! I even got my MDS Monday project up and ready for you in time, although I have a challenge card I almost put up first. LOL! This is why I don't like to designate days for things like MDS, C&S, End of the Week Technique etc. I feel like a failure when they don't get posted correctly. *SMH* :)
This weeks challenge over at Utah Diva's International was to do something for the newlyweds. Here's my card-
|MDS Wedding Cake Card|
Ok so the critic in me is just now noticing the center pieces are not centered top to bottom and I totally forgot to add my Blushing Bride pleated ribbon. AUGH! Will have to try and address that at home. I didn't have any "wedding " downloads so I decided to try & create one. I thought I'd make a cake. Somebody please tell me they realize that's where I was going. Anybody!?!
Since I didn't have any wedding images (and let me tell you I was not going to try and recreate that cake from the front) I added two sentiments from different sets. The top sentiment is from the same set as the front and is done in Raspberry Ripple. The bottom one is from Once Upon A Time and is stamped in Primrose Petals. I like how it turned out.
Well, that's all I have for you today. I hope you liked it and I hope it inspires you to think out of the box and try something new. You might just surprise yourself with what you come up with. Each element of today's card was created with elements that are a part of the MDS initial pack, except for the In-Colors and those are free updates. :) If you'd like to try My Digital Studio you can get a free 30 day trial. Just check out my website.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Don't forget to check back soon to see what I've been creating for you. Your comments make my day, so I hope you'll take just a minute to let me know what you think. Friends and Followers are always welcome too! :)
Till next time-
Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.
