Blues, greens and browns

Just a couple of projects I made today, catching up on some challenges.

My card is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #113, Friday MashUp's Challenge #74 to use pleating and/or make a baby card (I don't do baby cards unless I need one so skipped that bit - babies scare me hehe) and for Colour Q's Challenge #152 to use these colours. These colours were just fab together - love the Gumball Green with the Bermuda Bay! Not sure if you can tell in the photo but the Bermuda Bay DSP has been pleated and adds a nice amount of texture to the card.


And here's my card:

My next project is yet another one of my post-it note easel boxes! Another teacher at my school saw mine on my desk and asked me to make her one as well, so I got on to it this weekend. She requested browns and greens for the colours so I pulled out the same paper pack as I used with my partner teacher's box, which matched the Crumb Cake aka Kraft cardstock perfectly, which was the challenge for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #144.

And that's all for today folks! And that's the end of my summer holidays too, so back to my normal weekend crafting unless I can find any time during the weekday evenings!

  7. Hi Vanessa! Your WM card is so clean looking. Love how you have the sentiment stamped in green and that it overlaps the stamped label!!
