B Happy!

Here's a card I made for:

Mojo Monday
Nacho Average Challenge
Runway Inspired
Clear it Out - Birthday/ Glossy Accents

I was inspired by the orange, purple, beige, and white colors on the shoe Inspiration from Runway Inspired. I used Smokey Plum, Sunset, and Sweet Leaf colors from CTMH for the suggested SU colors. I put liquid glass over the big "B." The sticker is from the retired Buzz & Bumble pack.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Smokey Plum, White Daisy

Pink Frosted Scandinavian Christmas

Okay, so I wanted to play along with some challenges today, and here's what I had to work with:

Less is More - Music/Dance inspired
52 CCT - Nordic Christmas
Just Us Girls - Warm Pink, Light Pink, and Ivory
Crazy for Challenges - sketch

So, I thought the big rounded shape in the sketch looked a little like a house, so I used the house stamp in the Scandinavian wishes set. I cut it out with Art Philosophy. My song inspiration is "Joy to the World." And I tried to leave some "white space" on the card. The chimney smoke is from Wonderland WOTG and the music notes are from Sweet Music. The colors I used are Hollyhock and Blush with Colonial White. The smoke is stamped in Desert Sand.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Colonial White
B&Ts: Frosted
Stamps: Scandinavian Wishes, Wonderland WOTG, Sweet Music
Ink: Desert Sand, Hollyhock, Blush
Other: Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge

Color Dare 111 with Elemental

It's been a while since I posted. I've been a little unmotivated lately. I made this layout a while back, but today I put the finishing touches - title, embellishment, journaling- on it. The color dare at Color My Heart this week is

Cranberry, Sorbet, Olive, Lagoon, and Pacifica.

The layout is based on Sampler-Pieced from Reflections. I used the Elemental paper pack which included those colors. It also included Creme Brulee. Creme Brulee is retired now, so I left that one out. My layout has pictures from my husbands birthday this year:
