OLW#68 and CR84FN#40


I'm rushing out the door, so creative blog titles elude me! LOL.  I whipped up a couple of cards this morning to share with you.  The first is a response to One Layer Wednesday #68 and CR84FN Color Challenge #40.

Susan's challenge for OLW this week is to use triangles.  I think you can actually SEE the triangle in this one-layer card, yippee.  This time I created the stamping on a scrap piece of paper BEFORE stamping the card, just to make sure I could create the triangle that I had in my imagination.  I'm thinking of adding a couple of blingy bits to this card later. I like it as it is, but I also like a little bling.

The colours came from CR84FN:
I couldn't resist. I might come back and make some more cards in response to this colour challenge. I love them!

I used SU! Real Red, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake. The stamp set is PTI Botanical Silhouettes.

My other card I made in response to a beautiful card I found on Pinterest and tracked down to Ingrid Danvers' blog.  Ingrid's card is this one:
I wanted to make a one-layer card pretty much the same.  BUT I had a masking accident and my beautiful white space I had created was RUINED, so I added a green strip instead of the twine and white I'd planned.  Here is my card:
I still like it, but I'll try again to make what I have imagined.

Must rush off - it is gymnastics day for the little one.

What do you think of my cards today?   I'm looking forward to hearing your feedback.

My favorite would be the middle one. Everything looks very tied together. Or something. The colors are nice and muted, whereas the bottom one is more bold. The string, button, and extra layer pulls my eye into the card.

NOT that I'm saying I don't like the others! I just particularly love the middle!

Wow! I think all of your cards are stunning! The first is CAS, love it. The other two are amazing with all the different colors. Cant go wrong with that beautiful sentiment, one I use often.

I can definitely see the triangle Michelle, clever stamping and I agree a great colour combo.
Super CASE too, those colours are very dreamy :)

I love both of these, Michelle. Your CASE is beautiful and the green stip makes a great save. I adore the first card. Perfectly CAS.
