Woo hoo -- I finally completed a WRAK challenge; it's been months! It's a color challenge to use Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, and Creamy Caramel. Not only do I rarely (ever?) use caramel, but it's pretty uncommon for me to use gold, either. I'm a silver kind of gal! But thanks to this elegant charm sent to me by my buddy, Jacque, I was inspired to give the challenge a go.
I just couldn't make myself use Caramel, but I did find this Basic Grey DP that has shades of caramel (in small doses) and the sentiment is stamped in caramel, too.
The WRAK item, the floral pink cardstock, is from another buddy, Lena (tackertwosome); thanks, Lena! And although not through WRAK, I received these perfect shade of pink brads from my friend Joanna (Sitting on Copic Pens and Needles), so thanks going out to Joanna, too.
Tuesday Morning Sketch #30 is the inspiration for the layout. I went with CAS because the colors of the fun rectangle/square elements really seem to pop off the vanilla background.
Speaking of Jacque, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers because she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. You can read about this newest stumbling block in a tough year HERE and leave a supportive note, if you'd like. She's such a strong lady and amazingly generous, too -- she's offering some awesome blog candy in the very post where she announced her diagnosis! Take care, Jacque; we're pulling for you!!
