New Challenge Going On!



Hope your Thursday is a terrific one! I'm playing along with a brand new challenge - The Card Concept challenge - and mixing it up with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge which I've neglected far too long! I like to cross over and try different styles, but the clean layered style is generally what you see in my creations.  For the 1st Card Concept challenge, there's a color combo to use: Kraft, Pink, Espresso, Vanilla. I hope I don't get kicked out of the gallery, but I simply couldn't resist using a bit of green for the leaves (the brown leaves just didn't work for me).

PAPER: Martha Stewart "Holidays", Vintage Cream, Early Espresso, Kraft, Pretty in Pink, Garden Green.
INK: Pretty in Pink (sponged on rose), Soft Suede (sponged on heart).
ACCESSORIES: MFT Die-Namics: Hybrid heirloom rose, Accent It-Celebrate, Open scallop doily, and Solid bracket border dies.  Crimper, Brads.

Wanda your card is gorgeous! I too find myself going to the Clean and Layered style most of the time. I'm glad you used the green leaves :D

Such a gorgeous flower you have created Wanda. I love the doily, heart and leaf flourish supporting it. The matted background gives a wonderful backdrop. Thank you so much for joining us in The Card Concept's first challenge.
