Biking

I used these colors so I could enter it in the challenge at Pals Paper Arts......Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Espresso (I didn't have the Early Espresso so used Chocolate Chip instead). I'm awful at color challenges so  keep trying to challenge myself on these in hopes of getting better. Not sure I would have ever thought of this color combo, but I like the brightness of it.




All the products used for this card are from SU - Card stock, Beautiful Wings butterfly die, SU punch, So Saffron Ribbon, markers, and Square Lattice embossing folder.  The image is one of the stamps from Summer Afternoon.  Those are actual yellow flowers in the basket, but for some reason look green in the photo.


The sketch is from Create with Connie and Mary and I"ll also enter it in their challenge..  Cute sketch too!

Thanks for stopping by...........and hope everyone is having a great weekend.

I don't think I would have thought of that particular color combo, either, but it certainly makes a beautiful card. Love the stamp and the ribbon you chose, Lynn! Great texture on the Cherry Cobbler. Every time I see that particular embossing, I ask about what folder it is but never have fond out. Is it a SU or some other brand?

Lynn, what a nice "summer afternoon" scene. I think you do fine with color challenges. This was also a nice sketch to follow along with. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Well, I would say that you are no where near "awful" at color challenges. This is a tricky one and you totally rocked it! And as for the sketch, I love all the details that you've created. The embossed layer adds wonderful texture. And the ribbon and butterflies only add to all the goodness here! Thanks for sharing this with us at Create With Connie and Mary!
