No PINK and No Cupcakes! WHAT?
here with all the links and information.
I pre-ordered Ayako when I was in Hawaii and I finally received her last week and had a chance to play the other day! I decided you might be a little sick of my pink and cupcake obsession so I thought I would step outside my comfort zone and make something with some different colors than I normally use.
I absolutely LOVE her! When I was little I had some rice paper fans and rice paper umbrellas my mom gave me from Japan. Not only did I love playing with them, but I can distinctly remember the smell of them. They have a certain fragrance that I haven't EVER smelled before. It must be from the wood they use. It is intoxicating to me and brings back so many happy memories. I think that's why I chose Ayako!
I finally got to use my Stella Rose papers so I made this card for my Pumpkin Spice Design Team project!! . You can find the papers at my favorite store Pumpkin Spice! I love the colors, but they are not what I normally gravitate towards. But I still love them. I really had to challenge myself on this one. I am sure I will be doing one with pink soon. lol
I also used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Nine and Standard Circles. Did you know that you can special order Spellbinders now? Aren't you excited???? I am!!!!
If I can inspire just one person today I have done my job!
