Bashful Celery Melons…

March 9, 2010 at 11:14 am 5 comments

is what today’s SCS Color Challenge is called. I also recently started looking at and participating in the Flourishes Challenges. This week’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge used a sketch from Page Maps I’m really not sure I like the way this card turned out. I had a hard time incorporating the Bashful Blue. I ended up just using it as a panel behind the cuttlebug Certainly Celery panel. I used the Flourishes Calendar of Flowers set, which I love using with VersaMark and chalks (from SU). I used the Floral Screen EF on the Celery CS. I used a little patterned paper from SU and some polka dot paper I’ve had in my stash. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and the sentiment is from SU. I added some Mambo Melon polka dot grosgrain ribbon and a few of my Baba’s buttons. It took me about an hour to find some that matched. Two of them are a little larger, but I thought that was ok! I might end up making another card tonight. Anyway, thanks for looking and thanks for your comments. They are always appreciated!
