SCS Colour Challange and Try a New Technique Cards

Good Morning!
I'm glad I had an early start to work on this CC card for today. Suddenly I have a wicked headache and I just want to nap. This little cold seems to be kicking my butt!
Onto todays cards....
This one is for todays CC on SCS. It is Pomegranate, Soft Sky and Basic Black. Now those you that visit my blog often, know that Black is not a colour I often pull out. As you can see I've kept it to a minimum. I LOVE seeing other cards with black but it's just a colour I can't seem to work well with.
Stamps: Always; Cardstock: Pomegranate, Soft Sky, Basic Black, WW and Soft Sky Prints Paper; Inks: Pomegranate, Soft Sky; Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch, Rectangle Nestabilities, Marta Stewart Butterfly Punch, Double Stitched Soft Sky Ribbon, Dimensionals, Paper Snips
This next card was for yesterdays Try A New Technique. It was called a Two Way Open Card. You can find out how to do it HERE. My friend, Lisa, came over and we worked on our cards together.


Stamps: Tart & Tangy; Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Real Red, WW and Summer Picnic DP; Inks: Real Red, Old Olive; Accessories: Striped Red Ribbon, 1 3/8" cirlce punch, Scallop Punch, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!
