For something else new, I also decided to flip through my Cardmaker's Sketchbook for some card ideas. All these cards are a take on a sketch I found on page 26. What a neat way to dream up ideas! The grab bag set I chose to use included Sahara Sand card bases, with accent CS pieces in Always Artichoke, more Sahara Sand, and the now retired Bordering Blue. Something about that color selection steered me to the Elegant Soiree DSP pack, and the rest is as you see! The individual cards are in my gallery for up close viewing!
