Hello My Friends! I was able to get another card made today!
It is finally raining here in TX! And we needed it! Are yall getting any of this fabulous rain?
I made this card for Mary's color challenge over at Cardz TV. I don't know why, but color challenges seem to be the hardest ones for me. It seems like as soon as I'm limited to a certain color, I think of all these great ideas to use anything but the ones I'm supposed to!! haha! does that happen to anyone else?
Mary picked some hard colors for this challenge! Royal Blue, Deep Purple, Marigold, and Pale Gray ONLY! We could use a tiny bit of black and white if we needed to.
The first thing that came to mind for me was Halloween! Those are great Halloween colors! So, naturally.....I made a card with flowers on it! Hey guys...don't ask me how my brain works...it just does what it wants to. But I'm super happy with how it turned out! So, without further ado...
Marigold, Royal Blue, Deep Purple, Pale Gray
This card is 4x4 and was cut from Wild Card.
All papers are from Recollections.
Watering Can is from Country Life cut at 1.5"
Dark Blue background paper was run through Swiss dots folder
Swirl Stamp is from Hero Arts and was stamped with Tim Holtz faded jeans
Marigold paper cut with border punch and inked with Tim Holtz Wild Honey
Flowers are Recollections Floral Embellishments, Bling is Recollections
Sheer Purple Ribbon and blue cross stitch floss from Michaels
The inside is made up of everything that I cut the wrong size the first time! :) He he!
I left the frame open at the top so I could slide in a photo or gift card.
I have no idea what to use this card for....maybe some of you could offer up some suggestions.
Thanks for stopping by and I love to hear what you have to say!!
