Playing in Blogland

This card is for Freshly Made Sketch #11 - I just adore CAS sketches!  The beautiful colors, Navy Blue, White, and Silver are from Paper Players #73.  I am so thrilled to use colors besides red and green [for a solid week now] -- beautiful change of color combo!  [Thanks so much Ladies :)], and a new challenge I found, Paper Crafting Journey #23 - embossing.  I pinterested an embossed flower and wanted to try it - it worked okay!!

This card is for CAS-ual Fridays #29.

I kind of took liberty with the inside panel, but I was using their sketch.  I am also entering this into a NEW challenge site, Stampin Sisterhood Sundays.  This is their first challenge! Check it out - follow them - play in their challenge.  One of us might win! :) For the challenge, they had this gorgeous inspiration. (You all know I adore inspiration challenges!)


Okay then, that is it for me.  I need to work on some future cards [yep, you'll see them eventually]
Thanks for stopping by~
