Couple of Challenges


I found this fun, fun sketch over at JUGS!  Isn't this great~ the rounded corners got me!  Plus, I have really been drawn to this type of centered layout.  I love the way the card base frames the focal image, and of course, I ADORE my color combo.  Turquoise and black just sings to me!  Can you tell I really like this card? LOL  Thanks Girls - great sketch!  I used the sentiment stamp from GKD Botanicals.



This is for Gina's Color Challenge over at Stamp TV {red, black & yellow}. At first I thought my black was kind of stark against the yellow, but by adding some red border and ribbon, I think I balanced out the colors.  I used GKD newly released stamp set Spring Basket, illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  I have to say I do love coloring these flowers~ yep - you heard me actually say I enjoyed coloring!  Now, THAT is amazing, and does not happen often let me tell you~ :)
I'm still stamping away my day, so I might be back later.  Thanks for stopping by~
