Will You Take the Challenge

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I come to you with a Challenge... I was working on some cards and I looked over and saw that I have one big stack of one color and remembered that I had bought that particular color a VERY long time so much so that the first sheet on top was "Sun burn" ha.. OPPS...

What color would it be. Pumpkin Pie aka Orange... You see I don't use that color unless well its Halloween and so that was the last time I used that color.

Sure right now there are lots of Halloween stuff coming out now so you would think well I could use it now but I didn't want to take the easy way out.

That is how this challenge came about  & I would love to see you use a color to create something that you normally wouldn't.

I am going to have a little RAK of embellishments for one of you guys that plays along. How does that sound?  I'll have pick the winner on Saturday.


With this little card I wanted to create another birthday card.  I used elements that I had for a white. For my patterned paper I had a plan base and I just stamped the argyle background with Versamark to create that look. The sentiment is a sticker that I matted and just added a fish tale. The clouds are sticker chipboards which was from my RAK I rec'd a while ago. a few buttons and we have a card.

Since you can get 2 cards from 1 piece of cardstock I had to make another card right? So this is what I made :

 This one was less painful for me as I wanted to keep it super simple and sweet.  I had some leftover Designer Paper that I had printed out from Dawn's-PTI- Raspberry Couture Collection from June. Then I pulled out my Slice and cut out the Letters "H & B" and cute my little label added some satin ribbon. Some pop dots and card done!

That wasn't so bad I must say although  I was a bit nervous but glad I did it. I just might pull this color out a bit more.. Who knows. So now its your turn I would LOVE to see what you create.  Just leave a comment and a link so I could see what you created!

I am off to get my All Star! Happy Wednesday everyone and thank you for stopping by.
