The Paper Players Challenge #90

Hey Again Everyone

My next card today is for the the pretty colour challenge at The Paper Players Challenge.  When I first saw this combo of colours by LeAnne I was a little unsure how to make them work them as I’m generally not a “blue” person, but I’m pretty pleased with how this came out in the end.

Here’s what I came up with:

I did stray from the colour combo a little as I’m on hols still and only have Night of Navy cardstock instead of Not Quite Navy and I only have Baja Breeze Seam Binding at this stage – I’ll be buying Pool Party in my next order.

Thanks for stopping by.

Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #194

Hey Everyone

For my card last week at Create with Connie and Mary I confessed I hadn’t opened my Everyday Enchantment DSP before that challenge.  This week my confession is that I soooooo wanted Spice Cake DSP, so when it came out here in Australia late last year I had to have it so I brought it straight away.  When I got it, I put it aside and haven’t opened it until today – that’s how much I wanted it!  Anyway enough of the confessions, here’s the sketch from this weeks Create with Connie & Mary Challenge:

And here’s my card:

Thanks for taking a look.

Create with Connie & Mary #193 & Deconstructed Sketch #43

Hey Everyone

Hope everyone’s having a wonderful weekend?  I’ve combined two challenges today for my card – the colour challenge at Create with Connie & Mary:

And I needed a little help with these colours, so I’m using the sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch

Here’s my card and my confession – I think I maybe the only Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who has just opened her packet of Everyday Enchantment DSP for this challenge – shocking, I know!

Thanks for stopping by.

Play Date Cafe Challenge #122

Hey Everyone

I made this card for the colour challenge at The Play Date Cafe Challenge and for Spring has Sprung Challenge at The Paper Players, but I missed the closing time for The Paper Players as it seems to have closed a few hours earlier than when I usually enter – oh well, I’ll be earlier next week.

The colours at The Play Date Cafe Challenge are gorgeous together and one’s I’ve used recently so I knew what I was going do when I saw them.

Here’s their inspiration pic:

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
