Pink & Green and....

yellow and brown! That's what happens when you have color challenges that are similar! You get a lot of the same color in one post!! I am liking both of these cards - and I might try to squeak another one out tonight, but who knows! It's almost 11pm here so....


This first one has 3 challenges (I think - I could be wrong - we'll see in a minute! LOL)
  • It was created using this weeks CPS sketch.
  • The pink & green color combination comes from If the Shoe Fits...
  • The wedding theme was requested by Stamp Something
  • Dutch Dare requested decorating the inside of the card. - I actually decorated the inside of the card below, which you can see from the side, but I didn't take a separate picture of it.
And I was obviously wrong - as I hit four challenges on the top one! Oh well...NEXT!! LOL The next one also hits several challenges - and below the photo it will tell you what they are!


  • This on is for the Color Throwdown. You can truly see the pink, green and chocolate on this card!
  • Flourishes is having an Easy Peezy Challenge (that's what they called it anyway) and it was to make a 10 minute card. The only time I didn't count in this was the time it took me to find the bone folder, and the adhesive and the.....lol on my very messy table!
  • Getting Creative with Ann asked for Clean & Simple. Although there are three layers here - it's definitely CAS.
  • Three Clovers asked for Cards for Dad (or men) and you had to use metal. So I got my brads in on this one! The top three are not brads they are almost like a metal-looking self adhesive pearl.
  • Charisma Cards asked for pink and brown.
  • Last but certainly not least, 365 Cards asked for Diamonds as the focal point. I am thinking they're pretty focal.

So not too shabby - 4 on one, 7 on the other (as I did decorate the inside - but didn't list it again!)

As I continue to pile on my challenges - I need to remind you of the new challenge blog that is coming on Sunday - PILE IT ON! I understand that if you become a follower (nothing else) you will be eligible for blog candy!! So run on over there, become a follower, and on Sunday you'll see a new challenge come up!

Thanks for stopping by!

You are the QUEEN of challenge combining and include loads of challenge I've never heard of before. Thanks for some great links.

I've never mixed those 3 colours together but they work surprisingly well.
