Blogger Challenge, Week #33, SC162














This week I combined the blogger challenge (use Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, Rose Red and Old Olive) with the sketch challenge on SCS.


This was the worst color combo I've ever seen (sorry Lisa!) I just couldn't even think about using the Taken with Teal but I guess it looks okay on the card now that I look at it.


I got this awesome template from Sharon Johnson's blog and it was SOOOOO easy to make, I'm definitely going to have to try it again, and think it could actually hold 4 cards w/envies instead of just 2. I loved her sample so much and she was so generous to share the directions on how she made hers.


Make sure to check out the Blogger's Challenge button to the right which if clicked will give you a listing of all those who participate. Check out their awesome work as well to see what everyone came up with!

How cute, at first I thought the olive you was on the second card -- lots of times I don't read but I am so glad I did this time. That was an adorable image to use on the outside of that box for those cards. Your too clever. Great project.

Kim, What a cute idea. Your card turned out great. I love anything that is embossed as it really adds to a card.

You did a great job with these colors. The embossing on the pumpkin piece really stands out.

I love the cuttlebugged texture. I seriously forget that I own that machine sometimes -- maybe I should put it to good use sometime eh? Glad to see we have another Bella lover in our group! *Mwah* Great cards!
