STV Mix It Up Monday & SCS Color Challenge



For this Monday, Lee has a "pink" challenge in support of one of our GKD DT Members who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  She has a "kick butt" attitude and we are all with her "kickin butt" in our thoughts and prayers.  She will overcome this. Meanwhile, we will over load her with cards!  Nothing will cheer her up more then receiving all the "pink" well wishes, along with a Happy Birthday to her, which is next week!  I have to say this was a fun card to make.  Knowing I will actually be mailing for a purpose is fabulous!
I used a combination of stamps on this; GKD A Year of Leaves, Pressed Flowers. Botanicals, and All Occasion Tags.  That great dp is also for sale .  See the pearls? - Yep, that is the fun white Liquid Pearls.  I just love that they look like the real thing!  All of these are available at Gina K Designs Online Store.



Mary, over at SCS (Splitcoaststampers) Color Challenge, challenged us this week to using Cajun Craze, So Saffron & Always Artichoke, with a dessert of a Fall Theme.  I had made a card, decided not to use it, but it had used up the last of my Artichoke, so like the challenge says -- don't have it? Use the closest color you do have-  which, is Old Olive for me.  I have become addicted to this layout.  I know, I know my cards are looking the same -- but, but -- I LOVE LOVE LOVE this layout, and quite frankly, I like this card.  :)
Leaf image is from GKD Falling For You STV Kit, and the sentiment is from Follow Your Dreams.

Thanks so much for stopping by~

Your first card is very nicely mixed up! Great design and pretty stamps. Nice use of the pink. Your friend will really appreciate it. And the second... well, I love the layout, too. It's very clean, but with a lot of style, and looks great with the center panel popped up. The Cajun Craze is a great color. Guess I'll have to add that to my collection.
