Colorful Sunday

Happy Sunday to Everyone!  I have a quick post this morning before I get on to other things-sadly, housework.  This is for this week's Color Throwdown 217.

These are some fabulous colors!  Here is my take on the challenge-

 I have not used my set, Everything Eleanor too much, so I thought I would play with that.  I went with a white flower and the Lucky Limeade was perfect for the greenery.  I love the framing affect when using the Framelit Window dies and made mine in Night of Navy.  I hope I have inspired you! 

 Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Well, so much for housework!!  I couldn't let the weekend get away from me without playing the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS today.  Today's featured stamper has a wonderful gallery and I chose this card to case.  I really enjoy making frames for my images and this card is no exception.  I like how Patty used a die cut as the main focal point in the frame.
This is my take on her card-

Instead of using a die cut as the focal point in the frame, I used a masked image. I ended up blending two colors on the mask as I started out using Buckaroo Blue but quickly realized that the sponge I grabbed had brown on it.  The white frame and sentiment panel are both embossed with the wood grain ef and popped up on dimensionals.  I applied Dazzling Details to the berries, although you really can't see it in the photo and distress Stickles to the pine cone.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
