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.
