card making

Recently I've embraced the world of paper crafts and I'm all over it these days (much to my husband's chagrin... we're moving and my current office/creative space is the dining room table...).

 So if your birthday is coming up... expect to see one of my latest creations coming with a gift for you...

This one is one that I made for a scrapbook challenge using a yellow and pink colour combo. It was actually a good prompt because I don't think I would naturally have chosen this particular colour combo on my own.

I used 4 different papers (2 pink, 2 yellow), added fake pearl beads, and outlined the circles with a black pen.

When I first looked at it, I wasn't sure, but after adding the final touch, the sticker with the birthday greeting, I'm fairly pleased with the end result.

The one problem... the next birthday in the family is my brother in law... somehow I think that pink and yellow might not be his thing. Maybe I should give it to him and tell him that I'm intent on subverting gender colour stereotypes? What do you think? Will he buy it?

In the meantime, here's another recent card creation, still in the more feminine genre...
