FTL143 and Color Dare 103

Saturday, June 4, 2011

I've found myself stumped quite a bit in my stamp room this week, and I haven't even been in there all that much.  Last night I sat down to make a card for the FTL143 and Color Dare 103 challenges.  The FTL sketch looks like this:

And the colors are Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla.  Sounds easy right?  That's what I thought, but as it turns out trying to make a card with two colors and a neutral is really hard!  At least for me anyway.  But I persevered and eventually came up with this:

The good news is that I actually like this card.  Once I got it done and started photographing it, I thought it didn't look half bad.  The bad news is that I should be making graduation cards for a party later today and since I took time out to make this card, I'm in danger of {gasp} having to buy some cards. 

Someone send the paramedics, I think I'm going to faint!

So that being said, I'm signing off to put my nose to the grindstone and make those cards.  My family is very well aware that I always make my own cards, and my name will be mud if I show up to this party with store bought cards.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

Love, love, love the simplicity of this card! And I love that you were able to pull off only using just the 3 cards. I had a hard time, too! The addition of the butterfly is perfect!
