This card was made for this week's color throw down challenge. The colors are red, daffodil, and lime aid. I first stamped my diagonal pattern with the green and red. I then separately stamped my rose in daffodil and fussy cut it out. I glued it down, and then had some fun with the Gorgeous Grunge set. I added a sentiment from Sincere Salutations and punched it out. I then added some ribbon and did some paper piercing. A fun quick card. Thanks for looking and have a great week. :>)

The color challenge for this week was to use vanilla, soft sky, night of navy, and old olive. What a beautiful combination!! I had this pretty piece of dp sitting on my desk so I thought I would stamp some poppies on it. I then stamped an olive one on some vanilla card stock. I added some ribbon and brads and that was about it. Thanks for looking!!

I made this card for the Free For All Challenge on SCS today. We were to use the word love. I used all SU supplies except for the sentiment (I just realized that.) The colors are cantaloupe, slate, and dark gray. I used the two step flower set Stippled Blossoms. The ribbon is gray, and the little button is a current cantaloupe piece. The embossing was a striped one from SU.
This is my second card made with the acrylic batik that was featured on SCS this past Wednesday. There is a great tutorial on it found on SCS. My bg is meant to look like tree bark. It took me a while to find the right image to use with it. I finally came across some old photos I had and used them. I also added a bit of dry embossing for some more interest and texture. Thanks for looking!! Give this fun technique a try.
