This card was done for three challenges. The Free for all challenge asked that we use some holly on our card. The Mix challenge asked that we use chalk inside of a stencil. The color queen challenge had us using lime aid, red, Bermuda Bay, and Cool Caribbean. So, I made my own stencil and then used chalk - the colors of the color challenge. And the holly speaks for itself. Three challenges - good for me. Thanks for looking!!

This card was made for the color challenge on SCS. Karen picked the colors of daffodil delight, gold, and wild wasabi. I didn't have any gold paper so I went with gold embossing. I embossed my image, watercolored it, and then fussy cut it out. I then embossed the sentiment and some snow. I'm pretty pleased with it as it was not the first thing I attempted. Thank you Karen for your creative challenge.

This challenge was done for the color throw down - #269. The colors were dusty durango, peach parfait, soft suede, pear pizzazz, and very vanilla. I substituted cajun craze for the durango, and pumpkin pie for the peach. I watercolored the fig image from Flourishes. I added a bit of colored pencil to enhance the shading a bit. The embossed panel was done with the SU wallpaper folder. My sentiment comes from SU's tiny wishes. I attached a piece of ribbon with a pin.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! :>)

This card was made for the 451st color challenge on SCS. Nancy picked these colors. At first I wasn't sure what I thought. Getting closer to Christmas I thought of a poinsettia. As it turned out, I think these colors worked very well for this. I watercolored with real red, calypso coral, and old olive. I also used a poinsettia embossing folder to add a little texture to my card. I'm happy with how it turned out. Thanks for looking!! :>)

I made this card for three challenges. The first one was the sketch challenge on SCS. The second challenge was the color throw down challenge in which the colors were blushing bride, old olive, cherry cobbler, and co coa. The third challenge was the timeless tuesday challenge in which we were supposed to use plaid. I water colored my leaves and made them coming down along with a little rain. I was pleased to be able to combine these challenges today; I generally don't do much of that. Thanks for looking at my card. :>)

This card was made for Karen Barber's color challenge on Tuesday's SCS. The colors are cherry cobbler, old olive, and sahara sand. I used an angel stamp from Stampington. I colored it with both the cherry and the olive. I added some snow and glitter, which is difficult to see. I embossed the white with the snowflake folder. I added three faceted buttons. Thanks for looking. Have a great day and also have some fun stamping!! :>)
