Hello, and Happy Wednesday!
Last Wednesday, there was a new challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches and Colour Me...! so I decided to combine them. I also took the opportunity to catch up on a previous challenge from the same blogs. There are a gazillion challenge blogs out there, and there is no way to participate in them all. But these two are among my favorites!
Here is my first card. I love the girly palette from Colour Me...!, and the clean Freshly Made sketch from Jen M..
And here is a card for last week's challenges. I made this card Monday, but not in time to upload. Still, I wanted to post. I absolutely love the colors at CMCC#76 (elegant eggplant, old olive, and coastal cabana.) The sketch was a bit tricky for me, because it is SO clean! Even more than the one above!
I am not completely thrilled with this, but here it is. I actually made it LAST Monday, but missed the upload deadline. Any who...the card base is eggplant, and I added two strips of coastal cabana. On whisper white, I stamped the greeting from "All Holidays" and the flower from "Friends Never Fade" using my markers to color both. Then things went bad! I didn't like the blank space, so I added thick bakers twine. I started with bows...yuck. So I added some butterflies made with an embosslit, then stuck tiny pearls on the poor things.. I kept them because I had hoped to finish before the deadline. Nope. The eggplant butterflies look like they got stuck or something. Oh well. (And yes, I see the extra tiny hole. Another oops.) I could have redone this, but life is too short. There are other challenges to complete! LOL
I hope you like these cards and are inspired to jump into your favorite blog challenges too! My advise...start them earlier so you can create a card with fewer mistakes. *wink*
