Challenge card for SSC56 Sweet Sunday. Last time I did not get my card posted in time so I got right to it this morning in fact I dreamt about this card last night and what designer papers and stamps I would use and it came out pretty much as the dream showed. Is that weird?
The darker brown card stock from Club Scrap and the designer paper from JoAnn pack and the blue and red and white from SU. Stamp set from Michaels. I liked the tan as it looked like sand to go with the bird ocean theme. My clouds from my own template and the water from a stamp I've had for ages turn it one way it's water turn the other way its sand.

Clean and simple FTL78
Clean & Simple challenge FTL78 I have a hard time with this challenge, I always want to add more and more it is so hard to keep it simple. I like this kind of challenge and one day it will hopefully be easy to do. Side designer paper is kind of washed out so the colors of the rest of the card are not blending as well & as true as in person I had a hard time taking a photo. Washington state lately is not kind to bright days and my light left too much of a shine.

Kelly Jo color challenge #38. Kelly chose Blue, Red and Cream. I had to add embellishments to this stamp as it was so bland looking I added the bow vs. coloring the one on the stamp. Bling in the middle of the flowers and the middle heart looked so cream so I stamped it onto the red card stock and ran through the cuttlebug and cut out to fill that area and a little heart sticker to the smaller heart. All card stock is SU.
