Backtracking a Bit

A few weeks ago, I messed around with a teal and orange color scheme and PTI's Sign Language to make this card, which Jen chose as a sketch challenge for the CAS Design Team Challenge. I am so honored! If you have thought about entering the challenge but are hesitating, please jump right in. It's a great challenge, and no matter what, you'll have fun. I promise!

Here's another card that came out of that day of experimenting:

Sorry for the weird lighting. Sunlight is a fickle thing through my window!

After yesterday's bling-fest, this looks shockingly blingless to me. Still, it's a pretty card, with the scallops and curvy font of the sentiment balancing the straight lines of the squares. And the colors just make me happy.

I hope they make you happy, too!

stamps: PTI Sign Language, Birthday Basics
ink: Versacolor
paper: taken with teal, PTI white
accessories: square punches, scalloped square punch, dimensionals


  1. This is so pretty Susan. Great layout and colors!

  2. I love this any which way you do it. I think I may do something like this at my workshop on Saturday---looks like fun to me!!!
    (I really wanted to try out for that DT, too, but just am too intimidated.....eek!)

  3. Very cute Susan! LOVE the colors...And I know there are some Miami Dolphins fans that would too!

  4. OH my goodness! I just discovered your blog via a link on SCS and I just love what I see! Your clean and simple style is so wonderful and inspiring. Will definitely be viewing your blog regularly...

  5. I do like these colors together - would never have put them together myself but now I will!! And I really like the scallop square. It makes me realize that even though I have my scallop nestibilities, I almost never use them!! Going to have to fix that!!

  6. I love the scallop border. Nice layout again.

  7. I really like these colours, so fresh and happy!

  8. My favorite layout. the colors are perfect.

  9. It looks so cute in this layout. That mat behind it is a great touch.
