Color Challenge #1

Here's my entry for the Color Challenge at The Memory Nest!

First, I just want to say that participating in this challenge is what gave me the final push to create a blog. I'd been debating it for a while, and this challenge looked like too much fun to miss.

It's a pretty simple card. I used a premade ivory colored card (with a matching envelope). On top of that, I placed strips of brown cardstock, topped with a beautiful green, blue, brown and ivory floral cardstock. This is one of my favorite pieces of patterned cardstock I've ever owned, and I wish I'd bought more than one sheet! Below that, I stamped "Just a Note" in green ink, and thankfully it turned out. Stamping directly onto cards always makes me nervous. Next to that, I attached two glittery blue flowers with green felt covered brads in their centers.

Supplies I Used (or similar ones):
card and envelope: Unknown
cardstock: Bazzill
patterned cardstock: Unknown
acrylic stamp: Unknown
pigment ink: Martha Stewart
glittery flowers: Petaloo
felt covered brads: Unknown

Looks like in the future I need to keep better track of who makes the supplies I use! If you really like this card, it just so happens to be available in my Etsy shop! Click here to view it in the shop.


  1. You found where to link up. I was just going to explain to you how. Thank you for doing this. Your card is absolutely beautiful. Love how you incorporated the colors. So glad you created a blog and that we connected. :)

    1. Yup, I realized after I commented that the javascript blocker on my browser was keeping me from seeing the link up thingy. Thank you so much! I really love having other scrappers to chat with :)

  2. Cute card! Good for you for starting a blog! Love those fuzzy flowers!

    1. Thank you :) I'm really enjoying the blog so far.
