DCBD #111

I can't believe how fast a week goes by. It is time to do Heidi's challenge again. If you think about it pray for Heidi. She has to keep her cast on longer and may even be looking at surgery. She isn't happy about it. I wouldn't be either. Because of this it has made it so she can't work on her cards like she wants to. Thanks for praying for her.

Well I am trying to decide if I like the card sketches or the colors scheme challenges better. You guys have no idea how long it takes me to choose a color. FOREVER!! It is ridiculous how long it takes. Right now I am leaning towards the color scheme challenges as for liking them better.

As you can see above you have the card sketch and what I came up with for this one. I ended up using splitcoast stampers website to find the colors I used for this card.

Stamp sets: Fresh Cuts and Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: old olive, chocolate chip, ruby red, and cameo coral
Stamp pads: chocolate chip, cameo coral, ruby red, and versamark
Tools: large oval punch, 1/16" circle punch, 5-petal flower punch, boho blossoms punch, designer label punch, and coluzzle circle cutter
Accessories: 1/4" old olive and chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, dazzling diamonds, stamping sponge, and circle ice green rhinestone brads

I too love the color challenges! You did great on this! I love the technique you used to highlight just a portion of the main image! Nice!

Love that stamp choice! I think the square in the background just made the script square a natural choice! BEAUTIFUL interpretation. Love it!
