Another Colour Challenge - Subtle!

Just one more....before I throw my mask away.  This time I went with the challenge over on Colour Me Card Challenge.  Their theme is....subtle!

This is what I have:

I added a bit of glamour dusk for sparkle too!  Maybe a little too subtle :-)

One Layer Cards

Another simple card....but I'm liking it.  It' a Sympathy card for 4 Crafty Chicks.

The picture doesn't do it justice I don't think.  I've brushed Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Elegant Eggplant through a mask  on to plain card and stamped the flowers from Stampin' Up's Too Kind set.

And so as to finish on a happy note:

I've changed the theme of this card to a "Happy Birthday" and used the colours from the challenge on CAS Colours and Sketches

I think this technique is so effective!  Hope you like them!  


CAS Colours and Sketches

Evening all!

I've been checking out (some might say stalking) The Other Fickle Pixie's challenge blogs and thought I'd join in with this quick card for CAS Colours and Sketches.  I'm also starting the catch up cos she's been very busy on the challenge scene recently and I...well...haven't!

Petite Petals

A very CAS card done in the colours of Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry and Garden Green (nearly!).  I layered the flower trail of Petite Petals up and blinged a few of them too.  Finished it off with an inked edge and the happy birthday greeting from Butterfly basics!  One of my favourite sets at the mo.

Now I think I'm going to try a few more colour combinations!

A quick post before we're out to the garden centre again!  We're determined to have thegarden sorted for summer!

I've used Petite Petals and Gorgeous Grunge from Stampin' Up to make these CAS cards.  I'm entering this card in the Flowers Challenge over on Wags n Whiskers.

Melon Mambo

I may have hit the grunge a little hard on the first one (above) so I laid off it for this one.  I took the sentiment from Butterfly Basics.  It's a good size!  I'm entering this card in the Space Challenge on Inkspirational.  

Cajun Craze

Right - off to garden centre!

Afternoon!  Still going strong with challenges...after 3 days!  Today, I'm not quite sure I've hit the mark for the Less is More Challenge this week: to include a TAG on your project!

It includes a tag, just not sure it's as Less is More as it can be.  It's all stamped with the Butterfly Basic stampset from Stampin' Up.  I've cased this card from a (Carrie Rhoades).  What do you think....?

......I'll get my coat!
