CTD323, Christmas Wishes...

This card is for Color Throw Down Challenge #323.  The way I interpreted the colors was to use kraft, suede, blush, and coral.  I made a non traditional Christmas card.  I sprinkled some glitter on top, but as usual that can't be seen too well.  Thanks for looking.  I hope you all have a blessed Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!!

Mojo Monday Challenge 376, Bright Geraniums...

What a fun sketch this was for the Mojo Monday Challenge.  We have been having such dark gray days, that I decided I would use some bright colors to help cheer me up.  I centered my card around the dp I found.  I decided to use Marcella Hawley's beautifully drawn geraniums from the Power Poppy line of stamps.  It was my first time using it, and I watercolored it.  Oh how I love flowers, and she draws the best images.  Thanks for looking!!

CTD322 - Merry Poinsettia...

This card was made for the color throw down of the week.  At first I thought the colors might be tough to arrange.  I went at it in a much more complicated fashion.  Then I decided to use my much loved poinsettia image and I simplified my thinking.  I like how it turned out.

Pink Hollyhocks, CTD319...

This card was done for the 319th color throw down.  I'm getting it in at the last  minute.  This was the first time I used my hollyhock image from Penny Black.  I watercolored it with pinks and pear from SU.  I used the Gorgeous Grunge from SU as my bg.  And then I used my punch from SU for my corners.  That used to be something I used a lot when I first got it.  Thanks for looking!!  Have a great Thanksgiving with hopefully family and or friends.  :>)

CTD318, Happy Thanksgiving (not for the turkey)

The color challenge over at the color throw down this week is to use a light blue, dark blue, and an orange.  Since it is getting close to Thanksgiving here in the states, I thought I would use my turkey image.  I don't know if is is appropriate to say Happy Thanksgiving on a card with a turkey on it.  Oh well.  I heat embossed my image once in brilliant blue and once in orange.  I cut the pumpkin out and paper piece it in.  For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving I hope you have a beautiful day.  I like this holiday because it is easy to find things to be thankful for.  I also like that there is not the pressure for gifts.

Masculine Colors - Mark's Finest Papers Color Challenge #42...

Yippee!!  I found another color challenge.  This was on Mark's Finest Papers blog.  The colors for this week are a blue, rust, and green.  I used night of navy, cajun craze, and meadow moss - all from SU.  I used a stencil for my background panel and sponged the colors around it.  I enjoyed this challenge and like these colors together.

CTD317, Fun Filled Thanks...

This is the second card I have made for this week's color throw down.  My first card was a little on the soft side so I wanted to try a bolder one.
