Embellish Color Challenge with Hearts!

If your interested in a fun Color Challenge you should hop on over to the Embellish Magazine Website! It is a very trendy fun site! When I first saw the above picture I immediately started brainstorming ideas for a card. I just love the picture collages for these challenges, lets just say it is very easy to get inspired!

For my card I used a stamp set from The Angel Company called "Love Doodles". My sister just happens to sell for this great company so I easily get my hands on their stuff. This set might have been discontinued I'm not for sure, but it is a favorite of mine. I also used Papertrey Ink's Fresh Alphabet, which is very handy to have around!

Well, thank you for stopping by and hope you enjoyed looking around!

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21

Well I am certainly rusty when it comes to writing a blog entry, it has been a while but I am glad I am back! Today I took some time to make a few cards for Dawn's new Challenge. The colors she choose were Lemon Tart, Dark Chocolate, vintage or rustic cream, and aqua mist.

I love all of these colors so much, but I had a hard time since I don't have a lot of vintage cream, actually I only have a small ink pad and the buttons.

Lately I have been over thinking, so today I I tried to keep it simple. I actually really like how my card turned out. I used a technique I saw on one or more of Kristina video's (for the flower).
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
PS I just saw that Kristina added a Color Inspiration, I am so excited to get started!!
