Kristina's Challenge

070908-colorchallenge

I usually miss Kristina's color challenge---by the time I remember to look for it, it's usually too late!! Yesterday, I remembered; I was even up til 1 am last night waiting, but finally had to go to bed!! Don't these colors just give you a little hint of fall? Her style is a little edgier & hip than mine, but clean & simple, which I sometimes try to do, so here's my take. This card is 4 1/4" square; the flowers are embossed & punched out. I probably cased this somewhere, I am not sure, so thank you to whoever you are, if anyone knows, leave me a post! Of course, Kristina's work is PERFECT, and my sample has a couple little smudges of white EP which I could not get off, but I'm giving it a shot anyway! Thanks for visiting!

The smudges are what make it handmade! This is cool! I love Kristina's MACM, but never participated in her challenge. Will have to try! Great card!
