Not Quite Color Challenge

Well first off, I am going to have a difficult time returning all you comments tonight. I opened up my email and I have 42 messages -- that means 42 of you commented on my site today. OH BOY, I am so excited -- THANKS everyone!!


I wanted to do the color challenge for today -- Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, and So Saffron. Well I did not quite make it. The only thing I could think of was Christmas, and I did not want that. So I used this beautiful Basic Grey paper, and then tied my bow. I was so excited about my bow (isn't it beautiful?), that I did not want to change my card. Wild Wasabi was just not fitting on this card. So I just stamped Happy Birthday, and left it at that. Well I guess you will just have to check back tomorrow, to see if I can do the color AND the sketch challenge!!

Hey...My SU! consultant also showed in her latest e-mail to use the same technique you used on your Ahoy Matey card using the scallop punch ALSO works with the star punch! You may already know that, but if you don't, go try it :)
