Howdy!!! Okeedokeeeeeee............here's my challenge card for that very first Color Challenge here!! I'll be the first to say my card is..........ummmmm.......interesting!! LOL But I figured why not since the colors were not in my normal comfort zone anyway!! I used the required Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac and Mellow Moss along with Whisper White. Oh......I DID tell you that you could use white or cream for your focal image if you wanted, didn't I??? Hmmm......don't throw anything at me.........I meant to add that!!! I also used my Cuttlebug.........LOVE IT!!! And some ribbon and, of course, BLING!! But just a bit!! Some little heart punchies with a cool, little heart doodle stamp and the Love Matters stampset.
Oh this one was soooooooooooooooo fun!!! This was the New Technique Challenge for this week on Splitcoast. It's a type of teabag folding called the Dahlia fold. I was at my wit's end with this. With my issues with perfectionism (yes, that's why I'm a Flybaby!!) I had a tough time getting my folds to be PERFECT!!!! LOL So my wonderful daughter actually made the dahlia. Okay, to show off she made me 4 dahlias!!!! But I'm not about to say no!!!! I love this Cerise DP from Stampin' Up..........yes I do!!! So I used that against the Basic Black cardstock with just a little Real Red and Very Vanilla. Black Stazon for the sentiment from the Warm Words stamp set and a fun corner punch and ribbons.........that's it!!!! I'm addicted to these!!! :)
I've got more cards I've been working on..........so I'll keep uploading and I'll be doing my blog rounds admiring and learning from all my creative and talented crafting blogging friends!!!! :)
