SCS Color Challenge & Tryout

This week Becky chose Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and Baked Brown Sugar with a dessert of Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I just have to chuckle, when SU's new colors came out, I thought I had ordered all of them.  Well with the last 3 weeks of colors, I am coming up empty - so obviously, I didn't get all of them~  I used kraft today -- closest I had.  Good grief how many colors of paper are there? lol  I used Papertrey's, Rosie Posie stamp/ die set, with a sentiment from Hero Arts, Holiday Sayings.


Now, there is a little story with my cards tonight.  I am trying out for a Designer position over at Stamplorations.  You join in the month's challenge, this month is stamps and sequins.  I really like my 2nd card, but I am thinking the "stamping" part isn't covered very well.  Therefore, I am entering the above card into the challenge.  This 2nd card is like a freebie to you, and another sample of my creating for Stamplorations.  Dual plus don't you think?  hee hee.  Meanwhile, wish me luck please -- I checked out this company and WOW! I am totally impressed with the stamps, prices and shipping!  It is awesome to see affordable stamp sets!  I can get behind that!!

I used another sentiment from Hero Arts, Holiday Sayings.


Thanks for stopping by~

Vicki, I absolutely love both cards. The red and green go so well with the kraft -- you had me at the polka dots and hexagons. The second card is just way too elegant; it's stunning. Thanks so much for creating these two cards for our challenge, for the kind words about STAMPlorations, and for responding to our DT call!
