More challenges then pages...............................

I have been busy discovering scrap-booking layout and card making challenges the past few weeks and I LOVE doing them.

You can check out the different challenges by clicking on the pages listed in the right hand column.  I decided to add one more challenge I discovered today but have to post it on my main page because I have created as many pages as this blog system will allow.

The new challenge site is:  Color My Heart Color Dare.  <- click here to learn more.  It is a site that encourages the use of Close To My Heart products - YA! and challenges are based on using a particular color or combination of colors from the Close To My Heart pallet.   You can make any kind of paper product as long as you use the challenge colors.

The challenge this week is to use the color Juniper.  

Here is my interpretation of the challenge:

Close To My Heart products used:
  • white cardstock - cardbase is 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches
  • juniper cardstock
  • juniper ink
  • slate ink
  • Fabulous You stamp set - C1533
  • A Garden stamp set - A1119
  • Just for You stamp set - B1398
  • small bling gem from the Boutique Collection
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  Please leave a comment so I know you were here. Thanks!
