A Color Challenge

Over at the Pink Elephant blog they issued a color challenge vs. a sketch this week: pink, green and brown. I realised my butterfly card from last week's CPS sketch fit that but of course I wanted to make a new card since those colors are so great together! You may not see it, but I used cyrstal lacquer to give him shiny eyes. This Artsy Owl is in the Fall Supplement, so if you are ever browsing the online catalog, be sure to check out that as well as the Serendipity category, etc... there are wonderful stamps tucked in everywhere!




The other day Karen, one of my downlines, sent me a quick and easy note - it was so sparkley and I loved it! Of course, the next time I needed a mini-notecard, I copied her all pink version and used some chalk inks that I had. For just $5.95 you can NOT beat the Gerbera Daisy stamp from The Angel Company! And, the Thank You stamp is one of the free stamps you get when you place a $30 order. I was able to get 8 notecards out of one sheet of paper by cutting it once in half the long ways and then cutting those two sheets 4 times roughly at the 2.75 inches mark and folding the slices in half.

Yes I love the wavy border too - it really adds interest. You've combined the colours to perfection.
