Bloggers Challenge # 83 & SCS sketch challenge 212




YEAH IT'S FRIDAY!!!!! Fridays mean Bloggers challenge, and this weeks challenge was a color challenge (black, red, Kiwi, and a Neutral).

I also combined this challenge with this weeks SCS sketch challenge. How easy is it to make a card when someone picks the colors and sketch? All I had to do was fill in the blanks.

I did stray a little from the challenge and I don't have Kiwi, so I used Old Olive. At first when I was trying to come up with something for the colors, I have to admit, that I wasn't thrilled with them until I started playing. It's always nice to try something out of your own comfort zone.

For this card I used the "Will You Be My Valentine" set from SU INK, and I combined it with SU DP paper that I had. I paper pieced the kids clothes to match, and this was the result. My card very much reminds me of the "80's". I don't know if it's the color combo, or the kids clothes. Anyways, I think it came out okay, and I really enjoyed combining the challenges.

If you would like to see some more amazing cards made with these colors, go ahead and click on the bloggers challenge logo on the side of my blog, and check out what the rest of the ladies made. You won't be disappointed.

Have a FANTABULOUS FRIDAY, and happy crafting.

Stamps: SU INK

It may be easy for you, but it's not for me! I do love sketches though. And Kiwi is one of my favorites.
