coloring down the lines hop-March 4

Happy Icy Wednesday! Did you slip and slide from Amanda's blog?  No doubt you did.  Our challenge today was to use Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Sahara Sand.  Some real vibrant colors, for sure, but I didn't know how to mix them, so I spied my pack of something borrowed DSP and just simply colored it in, because the background is Sahara sand!  Genius, right?  Well I kinda like it now, though I had my doubts.  I just put some ribbon across and colored up those rosettes.  What do ya think?  Let's slide on over to Helen's blog and see what she did.  Pretty, huh?  Well thanks for visiting, and come on back for more.  Carol Smith

Color Hop-February 25

Color Hop-February 18

Good morning, ladies!  I think everyone is on board today!  I know that Amanda is, her card is so pretty.  Our colors today are Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss, Early Espresso, Mossy meadow, Sahara Sand, and Pistachio Pudding.  I tried to mimick the inspiration photo using the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set and the sentiment is from memorable moments.  It turned out prettier than I thought it would, hope you like it.   Helen,  I know will make good use of her colors, she's a natural, always making beautiful cards.  Come back again, and thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith
