Papertake Weekly - Perfect Pastels

Here is my card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge - Pastels. Yes, my fellow crafters, I know I cheated a bit here so don't worry about the reprimand but you know how creativity is - you start with something and then end up with something completely different and that is what happened today.

I made this card for my husband to give on our Anniversary. I wanted something romantic but at the same time keeping in mind its for a guy, hence the blue. I hope he likes it.


Materials:

Venetian Blues - Papermania
Blue Cardstock
Pearl Paint Dabber - Adirondack
Making Memories - Wedding Rub ons (which bdw half a sheet was lost because I stored it the wrong way and the sentiments stuck to the plastic. Silly me once more! So angry at myself at having wasted my fav sheet of rub ons.)

Tools:

Cuttlebug
Textile Embossing Folder - Provocraft
Paper Trimmer - Purple Cow
