This week's Ways to Use It challenge on SCS was to use colored pencils... a no-brainer for me!! I love my Prismacolors and use them all the time!! I'm even showing my hostess club gals the joys of coloring with them, gamsol and stumps at our meeting in a couple weeks! I had spent quite a lot of time coloring my Halloween card earlier this week, so I linked that to the challenge thread - but had to promise Julia I'd make a new card to play along as well. So, I did this one last night. Funny though, I chose a tiny image with hardly any coloring! Ah well. I also tried out this week's Sketch challenge - I really liked this layout! I am all about sketches lately!! I'm hoping if I keep doing sketch challenges, I'll eventually get better at putting together a nicely arranged card myself! So the color scheme of this card started with the ribbon - some super cute $1 ribbon from Michael's. I was inspired to dig it out after seeing this ADORABLE card by Charmaine! Isn't her's THE CUTEST?? My ribbon is different colors, but very similar. Funny thing though - this ribbon also has green spots that look very close to Celery - but I managed to cover them all up! But that's why I chose Celery as the base! So I pulled out my sweet little You're Neat set - saw the kitty with the pinwheel - and decided I had to try and make a pinwheel myself to add to the card! What fun! I just put "how to make a pinwheel" into Google, and voila - instant pattern. How did I live before Google?? :-) Not that making pinwheels is particularly complicated - but it was easier to just look it up than try to think through it last night! I made this pinwheel with the Flowers for You DSP from SU. The other cardstock colors on the card are Taken with Teal and Lovely Lilac. I had fun with this card - thanks for stopping by to take a look at it!
By the way - I still intend to keep doing Flower Fridays! I just wanted to post this card since I had actually stamped, rather than digging up something from the past with a flower theme - and of course it didn't occur to me last night that it was Thursday and I should stamp something flowery! But I did use the Flowers for You paper - so it may be a lame excuse for a Flower Friday, but I say it counts! :-) Have a great Labor Day weekend!!
