Colour Challenge Card and a Sketch

Happy Tuesday!
I've got a lot going on this week. Thought it was going to be fairly slow but nope...not going to happen...lol
I made this card today for the Colour Challenge on SCS. You were to use Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Certainly Celery. This layout was one I had jotted down on a sheet of paper but I don't know where it came from. If it's yours, please let me know so I can give credit ;)
I had not inked up this Hostess Stamp set until today...not sure why because this little pea is sweet!
Stamps: Event Full; Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Certainly Celery, WW and Celery Prints Paper; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Copic Markers, Nesties, Celery Brads, 5/8" Celery Ribbon, dimensionals
Yesterday Lauren had posted a sketch on her blog and some colours as well. I knew I wanted to use this new stamp I had got on Saturday and the colours she listed didn't seem to work for some reason. This isn't my typical style, not that I have one, but I really like the look. Thanks Lauren for getting me to step out of my comfy box...lol

Stamps: Stampendous and Riveting; Cardstock: Kraft, Choc Chip, Celery, WW; Inks: Celery and Choc Chip; Accessories: 5/8" Celery Ribbon, White Organdy Ribbon, Nesties, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!

I always love your cards and these are no exception but I must comment on your new picture: you look fabulous! This picture makes you look much slimmer.......I need a camera like that! LOL As usual, thanks for sharing your creations with us.

WHAT???? No stampin' style? Let me set the record straight, my dear .. YOU'VE got a very distinct, creative, unique, and eye-appealing stampin' style! I think your readers would all agree with me on that one!

These cards are AWESOME, as always! You used the color challenge colors so very well in the first one, and is gasped when I saw this second one for Lauren's sketch! The dandylion images are AWESOME! I love how you stamped off on some of them! Brilliant!

LOVE the new photo! How do you stay so young looking?! (I won't be updating my profile photo any time soon! LOL!)

Lori said...

Wow, did a double take! Different color hair, thinner face, or photo not as close, or something...
You really made those colors work for SCS challenge, they sounded terrible to me,lol.

Lauren (mytime) said...

OMG! How cute are you?!! You look so sweet with your new hair color! Love it. now onto the card-they are lovely as always! So fresh, clean and crisp!

Love that image from Stampendous and the color combo on that card is so beautiful! Although, as a food combo it doesn't sound so appealing - Celery and Chocolate blech! :)
