keep smiling

Played along with the latest color challenge at Color Throwdown #587 (pink, grey, green, kraft)


Although it took me multiple attempts to get a card 'just right' (several rejects on my desk), it was a really fun process.


Found some patterned papers that went with the color challenge.
Heat embossed some flowers on dark grey patterned paper. Die cut some leaves. Stamped the sentiment on kraft paper, and voila, challenge card complete!

I really enjoyed stepping outside of the my comfort zone to create this one!!!

Thanks for stoppping by!!

hello!
Played along with the latest CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #366

Loved working with this sketch!!
I just love playing with designer papers.... the patterns, the colors, mixing and matching.. love, love love!!!
I'm also a sucker for great fonts, so this sentiment stamp from WPlus9 Design Studio (Onward and Upward) immediately caught my eye!

Thanks for stopping by!!

you make me smile

Played along with a couple of challenges this weekend...
I enjoy combining a sketch challenge and a color challenge
CAS(E) This Sketch #365 and Color Throwdown #586

And here's my card!
This was a fun one to make!!
I rummaged through all of my pink and purple papers, and knew that I wanted to use a bold sentiment. It was fun creating with a color palette outside of my comfort zone.

Great challenge!
Thanks for stopping by...

As always,  I enjoyed playing with patterns and color in my paper selection, and kept my stamping simple in just black ink.
