Right Rose or Wrong Rose??

I sound a bit like Scooby Doo...Ruh-row!

Today's Color Challenge on SCS was posted late last night. So I gathered some materials (all from Stampin' Up!), stamped an image...but then headed to bed since it was nearly midnight. I thought the colors were so saffron, pear pizazz, and rose red. I even colored some basic pearls with my markers, and cut a strip of retired rose red grosgrain ribbon. I finished the card after work (including a lovely dinner out with some ministry friends!), then looked up the thread to post my card.

Ruh-row! I need REGAL rose, not rose red! Thankfully the color police did not show up at my house! LOL! I took the other half of my so saffron sheet for another card base, and made a quick card...again. The "dessert option" was to include items that begin with the letter "P". I used my perfect polka dot impressions folder with the big shot. I also used my extra large scallop circle punch with the polka dotted pattern paper. Both cards have pearls, and this cute little pig from a retired set called Very Punny. The dsp in the 2nd card is retired...but it has a nice plaid pattern to it! The pear pizazz pattern paper in card #1 is from my beloved hostess level 1 stack! The pig images are stamped with stazon black ink and colored with marker, including a bit of pear pizazz grass. The pear pizazz ribbon is thick and heavy, so I secured it with some sticky strip around the back.

Then it hit me again...gee, those polka dot circles look similar. Oh No! I used melon mambo on the 2nd card. Good grief! Well, the pig is colored with a regal rose marker...I promise!

Both cards were easy to make...clean and simple design.

I guess a rose is a rose is a all sorts of shades!!

  1. Both cards are terrific. Love the sweet image, texture, and colors. Both design are crisp, clean and work well with the image.

  2. LOL....good to hear you weren't arrested! The cards are both fab.

  3. Love your piggy cards - whichever rose it was supposed to be! LOL

  4. Both cards are cute especially the little piggy. I'm a new follower from Stampin' Connection (#247 on the list). Come by my blog for a visit.

  5. I like the Regal Rose color combo better. Very cute!
