Been a while...

Well... I missed Kristina Werner's challenge last week. Between work, Meagan's invite order, and trying to make cards for the Alzheimer's Fundraiser, I just ran out of time!!

She didn't post one this week, however, because she is off to NYC for a convention. Lucky!!


Here is a color challenge card from last week over at Splitcoast. I just love these colors together. Ruby Red, Soft Sky, & Pumpkin Pie. Of course I love them- hello... Pumpkin Pie!! ;)


I used the blender pens to pick up the colors from the ink pads to use to color the teacup and flowers. I used some rub-ons from the Perfect Day set for the white swirl. The patterned paper is stamped with flowers from the Fabulous Flowers set, which I just LOVE right now!!
The next card was made for my dad's best friend, who is getting married this weekend. Their colors are purple & silver, so I wanted something elegant and I wanted to use the biggest of the Fabulous Flowers set... I embossed one in black, one in irridescent ice, and stamped the last one in Almost Amethyst, then cut them into pieces and attached with a rhintstone brad.
After that, I attached a Mr. & Mrs. from the All Holidays' set and put a oval piece of Hodgepodge hardware around it. I also added a piece of scalloped paper and then tied a sheer ribbon around it.
It may be *the* most elegant card I have EVER made!
I'll try to post a little more... I'm busy with the invites now, however! 100 to make only ONE month to do it... AHHHHHHHHHH!!
Hope everyone is well!
