Cards For Sale

Thursday, September 3, 2015


Happy Thursday peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made with a few challenges in mind.

First I used the sketch this week at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog

I did move the strip across the top to the bottom of my square element on the sketch.

I used the Color Challenge at the Color Throwdown Blog

finally I am linking to the SUO Challenge Blog
which this week the challenge is Cards for Friends!

No surprise to you all I used the Stampin' Up Best Thoughts stamp set.
I promise I will move on soon! :)

I stamped the flower and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads, 
I used Crushed Curry and some Garden green for the flower 
and then used Night of Navy for the blue shadowing around the flower.

The main image is matted with Daffodil Delight card stock.

The friend sentiment comes from the Endless Thanks stamp set.
I added a small strip of gold glimmer paper behind the sentiment panel and then used a bit of linen thread to tie a bow.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I love this one also. You do such a beautiful job coloring.

I have made 3 of these cards in the last week. The third card is the better of the 3 but still needs a lot of improvement with my coloring and shading especially. Sure takes a whole lot of practice.
