OK, I’ll be the first to say that’s a pretty weird post title. But that’s what you get when you combine a Dynamic Duos challenge, a sketch challenge, and images from a stamp set called “Love ‘n Breakfast.”
Today’s card uses the colors from Dynamic Duos challenge #26, So Saffron and More Mustard. The layout is Splitcoaststampers.com sketch #408. I thought the colors worked well with the toast image (I don’t like my toast to be very dark), and the sentiment didn’t make much sense without the toaster, so it got added into the card, too. I sponged the edges of the designer papers and the focal panel with More Mustard ink.
The more I think about it, I suppose this card works really well for Lydia’s Hope You Can Cling To challenge, too. She’s challenged us to make a card that reflects our own personal style. I think this card shows off that I tend to make “clean and layered” cards – clean lines, no big puffy embellishments, but more layers than one would typically consider “clean and simple”. It also shows that I like to combine challenges. Plus I’ve used some of the Nestabilities dies and Lawn Fawn stamps that I love. And there’s no glitter!
And that’s what my dynamic sketchy toast is all about.
(Great… now I have the Hokey Pokey going through my head… oy.)
