Weekend Challenges Done!

I can't believe another weekend is almost done - pooey! But, I was able to get this weekend's color and sketch challenges done - yay!

For the Sketch Challenge, we used Our Creative Corner's sketch 132. Isn't it a great sketch? I loved it and will definitely use it again. I used the Sending Love DSP and Bitty Birthday set for this card. For accessories, I used the pink flower buttons from the Sherbet button set and used my favorite Cherry Blossom embosslit die. I added to the flower by punching some circles and adding a pink brad. I first tried to use a piece of vanilla satin ribbon in the middle of the card, but it just didn't look right. So, I had to careful disassemble the card and added the chocolate chip strip of cardstock instead. I really do love the layout!

For the Color Challenge, we used Diva Coffee Break Design Color Challenge #168. When I do a color challenge, I begin by pulling the cardstock of the colors. When I was looking at the colors, I didn't know what to do. I then started looking at the sets I haven't used yet. I saw the Just Surfing set and thought the colors would be perfect. Last summer, our group had a swap using kraft card stock. Sherri (Hey Girl!) made an awesome beachy-surf card. I remembered it and decided to CASE it with this challenge. I used a Whisper White base, but it looked funny as the sky. So, I sponged it with Ballet Blue to make it look more like the sky. The colors are good together, but this was a really tough one for me!

Thanks for looking and hope you have an awesome week!
