Bold and Bright for Lara

Happy Thursday! It’s sketch challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary. This is one of those rare times that I already knew who I was making this card for before I started. But first the sketch:

I made this card for my lovely neighbor and friend Lara. I made her a gift and this card will be accompanying it. I got a Silhouette for Christmas and she is my first victim. Haha! I’ll post that picture tomorrow. Lara is not afraid of color or pattern. She mixes combinations that I would never dare to but when she does it her projects come out beautiful! So with that being said, my bright colors combined with different patterns are a tribute to her. 🙂

My flower was made from punching already stamped scraps (you can bet your bippy that I save every snip-it);) with the Pansy and Fun Flower punch. My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, one of the first sets I ever bought!

I used a circle punch on the top of the treat bag so that she can use her fingers to easily pull the message out. And it helps show off the bling-y sequin trim!

Too busy to Care?

Hi Friends! It is color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary. I decided to do things a bit different this week and also participated in Mojo Monday’s sketch challenge.

Autumn

So my title says it all. I thought that my card was too busy but my mother-in-law was here and she said that she liked more leaves so I went with it! I just didn’t care and the more I added the more I liked it! I guess I’m just craving some autumn! It’s still very warm here in Coastal Carolina and don’t even get me started on the humidity!

Here is the sketch from Mojo Monday:

and another shot of my take on it (with some fall foliage of course)!
