Pumpkin Blooms for Colour Me…!

Welcome to another challenge at Colour Me….!  This week is our Monochromatic Week and we are working with Pumpkin Pie!

Our challenge:

CMCC Full Graphics-015My card:

I, unfortunately, don’t have any Fall or Halloween themed stamp sets or I would have used some pumpkins on my card.  Instead I went with my go-to and created a floral back drop for the sentiment.

The layout comes from this week’s sketch challenge at The Challenge.

Since yesterday was Back-to-School for most people, I think this week’s inspiration photo, at Colour Me….!, is very appropriate.  This is our Striking Week and we are working with Real Red and Lost Lagoon.

I went with a heart theme and was pleasantly surprised at how well our two challenge colours went with it!

For the layout of my card, I decided to play along with this week’s challenge at RetroSketches and used their fabulous sketch!

Happy Labour Day Monday everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their last day of summer holidays before the kids head back to school tomorrow!

I know my kids are nervouscited – as they put it – as am I.  This is the first year I will have the two of them in different schools, as my son heads of to Grade 7! I’m not sure how that happened (no more little kids in this house, as my daughter is entering Grade 4!) but I am excited for him to start this next adventure in his academic career.

It’s also time for another fun challenge at Stampin’ Celebration! and this time, we have a wonderful photo to inspire your creations.

DSCN1019I really wanted the theme of my card to be all about circles, since our inspiration photo is full of them! And I decided to step it up a notch and try my hand at my second (ever!) shaker card.  Was so much fun and I will definitely try one again.

As luck would have it, this week’s sketch challenge at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday is all about circles and Stampin’ Royalty, are asking for a project with circles, so I am linking my card up to these wonderful challenges as well.

Sketch 53-001

Our challenge is open until Friday, September 18th, at 9pm EST, so there’s plenty of time to play along.

Please head on over to the Stampin’ Celebration blog and check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to love all of their creations!

And as with any challenge, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  • Feel free to use any brand of product you may have in your Stash.
  • We ask that you create a new project for this challenge and add a link to our blog or use the challenge graphic in your post.
  • Please link directly to the post for this challenge, not your entire blog (so we can find your project better)
