New Color Challenge!

I wasn't looking for a color challenge tonight. Honest. I was just going to play a bit in my craft room and then go to bed. I blurfed a bit and saw that Randee, Sarah-Jane , and Kelley all had the same color challenge submissions on their blog (Seriously, I started to think I had missed the memo ladies). It was a new challenge Travellingmama had started. So fun! Then I started sorting and putting stuff away in my room. I sat down and made a card (wasn't really planning on doing a challenge tonight) and when I was done I looked at it and thought, well I could use this for the Traveller's challenge! So here it is:


Nothing really fancy here. I am a pro at nothing really fancy. My copics are crying in their little boxes right now....
I used a felt flower from K and Company and added some gable green and raspberry fizz cardstock. Then used the patented Tiffany punching technique to add some visual interest and added a PTI birthday sentiment (still building the birthday stash).
Hope it inspires you!

Your card looks wonderful!!!

It does inspire me Katie. This is a lovely card! I really like the look of felt on cards, yet I rarely use it myself...note to self: use more felt!!

Best wishes,
Sam.

Very pretty! I love that felt flower and the paper piercing around the box. It really adds a lot! Simple is all I can come up with these days but... I like simple so that is ok. I am always happier with my simple cards!

I am so glad you decided to join us! Yeah! Your card is so sweet! It looks like a picture frame with the layers being inset because of the paper piercing- very cool! And I love the felt too! You have great style, girl!
Hugs from Morocco!
