Can you Believe it???

Created yesterday, picture taken and uploaded today. I'm starting to get back into the groove!

I finished off my TLC project and went to work on the Color Challenge for yesterday which was a repeat of Blue Bayou, Real Red and Soft Sky.

I had a blast working on my TLC challenge which was to create 3x3 cards, envelopes for them and a little box to hold them all. I loved this idea and went straight for my Wild Asparagus paper that I'd gotten in a slab from Hobby Lobby a while ago. Since it's single sided, it would give the impression of lined envelopes. I printed the templates off onto the paper and cut them out (the box too. I pulled the colors for the cards out of the paper. I've also had these Imaginisce (?) stamps for a while and I decided to break them out for this project.
Stamps: Imaginisce - Popsicles. Paper: Wild Asparagus dp, Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue, River Rock, Always Artichoke, Whisper White. Ink: River Rock, Bashful Blue, Always Artichoke. Accessories: slit punch, ribbon, corner rounder, mat pack.

My Color Challenge card. I'm really liking how this turned out - I think it's pretty and elegant. I didn't want to go too ornate with this card - the whole "too much stuff on one card" deal. So I picked the flower image from One of a Kind and stamped it 3 times - twice in Blue Bayou and once in Real Red. I cut the flowers down and layered them on top of one another with dimensionals - which you can't really see in the picture. The 2 layers that are popped up are washed with a little bit of color to make them stand out a little more. The background is Flourishes LLC's Damask background stamped on Real Red in Real Red. I added a dyed prima to the flower and topped it with a Glitter dot.
Stamps: Flourishes LLC - Damask, SU - One of a Kind. Paper: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky. Ink: Blue Bayou, Real Red, Soft Sky. Accessories: Crystal Stickles, ribbon, dimensionals, glitter dot, prima, aquapainter.

Since it's a little gloomy here, I'll wish everyone a nice warm sunshiney day (and hope that it catches up with me),
