Pretty in Pink!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start and, if you are suffering in the cold like we are, you are managing to stay warm!!  I am certainly glad I had an excuse to stay inside, stay warm and create my card for this week’s challenge at Colour Me…!

Last week’s first challenge, was a such a resounding success (kudos to Hayley and Tara!!), that I am super excited to see what you all come up with for our second challenge!  This week we are playing with some striking colours – Melon Mambo and Marina Mist.

Our challenge:

 

My card:

P1140858

I made this card for a sweet little girl, who is celebrating her 2nd birthday this week. After I completed the card, I realized I should have left one of the candles off the cake. Oh, well, I guess that’s an extra wish! I couldn’t resist the pennant banner and the added bling, because really, what girl doesn’t like a little bling!

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, so be sure to stop by Colour Me….!  and check them out.  We can’t wait to see what you create!!! RosemaryHayleySam, TaraKatieLesley (Guest Designer).

Our challenge:

My card:

I pulled out one of my favourite DSP’s, Gingham Garden, for this card.  It was cold and blustery, the day I created it, so I thought it would be nice to create something bright and cheery. And who doesn’t like to get flowers on their birthday!

‘Falling’ For Seize the Birthday

It’s time for another “Anything Goes Birthday with a “Toppings” option challenge at Seize the Birthday! This week, our “Toppings” option is the colours of Fall

Our challenge:

My card:

P1140654

I don’t have any Fall themed stamps sets of my own, so I borrowed the Lovely As A Tree from a friend. My layout and colour combo inspiration came from last week’s sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary and the colour challenge at Pals Paper Arts.  I don’t normally create Fall themed cards, but I am pleasantly surprised with how this turned out. I may even have to add this stamp set to my collection!

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, including some with our “Toppings” option, to inspire you with, so be sure to stop by Seize the Birthday and check them out.  We can’t wait to see what you create!!!

Our challenge is open for two weeks, until October 22nd, so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.

Sure hope you will join the party!
