CFC #63 – Thinking of You

July 28, 2012

This week’s CAS-ual Friday Challenge is definitely a challenge for me! Playing with three colors for this card: lime, aqua & navy. Although I rarely use these colors, I did manage to find some ink pads to match the colors required.

But first, completely off topic is this amazing find by my mom: a wooden cassette shelf, perfect for my inks pads, and only for $3.99! And look at those ink pads, resting so beautifully on the shelf 🙂  Although not enough space for all my ink pads, I’m still very excited to finally be able to see most of my ink pads all at the same time instead of having to go through my shelves.

New Ink Shelf

As for the card, I think I must’ve ditched at least a dozen tries before I got to this card. And even so, I’m not entirely satisfied by my take on the color challenge.  If Papertrey Ink decides to go for a First Aid Challenge, I’d definitely submit this.

Ink: Stampin’ Up (Brilliant Blue, Cool Caribbean) Impress (Basil) PTI (True Black)
