A Colorful Sketch

Usually, I wait until my hubby can get a good picture of my cards. But he is at work now, and I wanted to post this today. Anyone who posts to splitcoaststampers knows that your cards get a lot more "love" if you post on the day of a challenge! LOL!!

I combined today's sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers with today's Color Dare. Very bold colors...but I think I have someone in mind for this card already!

The Color Dare (see my Blog Roll) called for elegant eggplant, old olive, bermuda bay, and melon mambo. Wowza! I decided to go floral...but I now realize that bermuda bay flowers probably don't exist in nature! Oh well! I colored images from Embrace Life with my markers and blender pens. The main panels have ticket corner punches. I used bermuda bay and razzleberry lemonade DSP. Some ribbon, a scallop oval punch...and Look! It's the word window punch again! But hey, that thank you is from All Holidays, not Teeny Tiny wishes. (Aren'tcha proud of me??) Only the gemstones are non-SU...everything else you can get by clicking over there <-------- on the Stampin' Up! catalog picture.

  1. This card is beautiful -- I think the colors pop off the page and if Mother Nature saw the Bermuda Bay flower -- she would say, 'Gee I wish I had thought of that first!' --

  2. This soooo summery! I love the bright cheery colors and your picture taking is fine. Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. Love the colors - beautiful use of a forgotten set in my collection!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. This is so pretty! I love your blog and need to go looking through it some more! Thanks for the inspiration!!
