I can't help it, clean lines hurt my soul and as hard as I try, I just can't do it.
With that out of the way (I'm sure this wasn't surprising news to anyone) on to today's challenge card! It's Birthday week over at The Friday Mashup, which is perfect, because today is MY birthday! Yay! One last year before the big 3-0! My boys spoiled me early with a new embossing tool (Carl broke mine while fixing his truck...the arctic weather makes regular plastic cords go snap in the cold.) Also got a some spa time! A mani/pedi, eyebrow wax, and 30 min. pregnancy massage! Bliss! Anywho....
- Make a "Birthday" project.
- Or Make a project using "Pastels/Chalks or Pastel Colors".
- Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Birthday project using Pastels" .

Man, I had a hard time with this...pastels are not my color pallet of choice. I better change quick, as I'm awaiting the arrival of a baby girl in March.... Hence why once I put it together, I had to distress like mad and wear it out. I like vintage-looking pastels I guess. So, my card looks dirty and I like it. (Suddenly that Rhianna song pops into mind...) Like an old chair that's just too comfy to repair, or a worn out book. (Which I own neither..lol...or the Rhianna song)
