Vintage Vogue Color Challenge


I did a quick card for today's Color Challenge on SCS to use Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze & Wild Wasabi.  Dessert was to say it in squares.  As you can see, I didn't say anything in squares or not.  I think that is a neat idea and I loved what I saw in the gallery, but I just didn't get to that.  Think I can lose weight by skipping dessert?  I wish!


I really didn't have any idea what I was going to do when I sat down at my work table.  Do you ever do that?

Vintage Vogue was sitting there so I inked it with the Wild Wasabi & Baja Breeze SU Markers and stamped it twice on a scrap of Whisper White.  I liked that so now what?

I embossed the edge with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I've got to tell you that these embossing folders were a real hit in my classes this month.  They add so much with just a little bit of work!

I matted it with Wild Wasabi.  Still looking ok.

Now for the Cajun Craze!  I love this color but I wasn't too sure of it with the subtle colors!  Well, more looked better to me.  I was amazed at how these colors looked together!  Betty has repeatedly surprised and delighted me with her color combinations!

A bit of Wild Wasabi ribbon from a couple of years ago and a few of the SU pearls that I LOVE, and the card was done.
