New Blog!

Good Morning! I have not posted in quite a while. Life has been so hectic. Not that it has slowed down much, but I'm excited about the new blog I am designing for. The Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Blog is gone, I'm afraid to say :( BUT - there's a new blog being run by Andrea (from JCBC) and I think you're gonna love it! Be sure to check us out at:

The first challenge was a color challenge. You need to use the colors brown and pink - such a gorgeous combination! So I pulled out some of my favorite paper from CTMH and a new (to me) Tilda stamp and got to work!

All my papers are CTMH. I colored my image with copics as usual - I love the soft colors. I used Distress Inks and a blender tool to set my background, which was cut with a nesties. The swirl is cut from a Sizzex Die and the flowers are primas with the leaves from a MS punch.

Hope you enjoy this weeks challenge and I look forward to seeing *your* card posted! :)

Have a great one!
