Have a great evening my friends :)
Winter passed along The Karma Award: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award." I need to choose 8 blog to pass this on to.
And here's my take on the challenge. I had trouble getting the melony gems to photograph, but hopefully you can tell that the gems on the ivory flowers are the melon/orange color. I also did some clear embossing of those lovely Damask images. So, you can see I'm still hung up on the clear embossing and now have added the flowers to the mix. (You know I go in phases). The flower phase could last awhile as I have a lot of flowers because they sell those in packages of several. I will try (TRY) not to overdo it. :)
Have a wonderful WEDNESDAY tomorrow my friends. I'm off to bed now.
If you've hung with me this long, thanks! I hope that you all enjoy the remaining hours of the weekend.
The colors we were to use were Stampin' Up: Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Pale Plum. The color challenges I've joined in lately have all involved Purple of some sort. I have to admit having on limited supplies of purple (or shades of). But I've scrounged up enough to participate :) Both of these challenges are a lot of fun, and it's always nice when you can double up :)
Have a wonderful weekend friends!

I really liked this layout. In fact, I may make another card using it. And I really like the Cosmo Cricket paper (insert big happy sigh here). My mojo has been lacking lately, and designer paper is so handy when my mojo has gone MIA.
I hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by, you know I love hearing from you!
Unfortunately, the colors don't show up too well in my photo. I desperately need to get better at photo editing. I just need to find a few more hours in my day (as I think most people do).
Thanks for stopping by!
