Special Days

My card is made for two challenges. One is Inspired by Stamping-IBSIC #51 and for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. The Queen is Val aka Greywolf. I chose this card to case.

Inspired by Stamping is a color challenge using white, orange, and green.

My cardstock is Stampin'Up! Old Olive and  PTI white. The orange is my flower colored with Copics. The gorgeous flower is from Inspired by Stamping/Elegant Flowers and the sentiment from the same company is from the set, Flowers Bloom.

I sponged around the flower, added a QuicKutz flourish and some pearls. My dies are Spellbinders Stately Circles and the ribbon is SU Old Olive

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. Unfortunately, this weekend is not in the 70's as last weekend was where I live and I'm very sorry about that.

CCEE Stampers Color Challenge


My mojo has left me and I'm afraid I'm disappointed in my card this week. Several times, I wanted to make another one or re-work this one, but here it is.  Seems as if  when I make a card far ahead of time, I look at it until I don't like it one bit. Guess I should put it away when finished and not look at it until time to post.

Charlene Merrick gave a pretty color challenge this week: Use Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, River Rock, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla. I had to substitute a couple of those.  I'm using a sketch from Splitcoaststampers SC425.

I hope you'll come over to the CCEE Stampers and check out the rest of the team's awesome cards. Then, we hope you'll play along with our color challenge.
