I got to use a few things for the first time-always fun. I loved being able to create a background using the colors in the challenge-Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, and Dapper Denim, with the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP. I'll be using this more often. I got Pop of Paradise during the AC pre-order but never had inked it. I opted to use the sentiment from Basket For You so I could use the Bunch of Banners framelits-too lazy to fussy cut. And that's really all there is to it. I did add the Dapper Denim ribbon. Pretty simple. Hope you will try your hand at this color challenge.

I started out being very frustrated in doing this challenge. I began several cards, only to find I didn't have current ribbon or DSP or the right stamp. I sure don't know how people who don't have access to co-ordinating products can make cards. I finally settled on Picture Perfect and From Land to Sea, with accent help from Timeless Textures and Gorgeous Grunge. I would rather that my banner was elsewhere but I wanted to stay true to the challenge. I think it has a masculine flavor so for that, I am grateful. I am ready to move on-LOL And of course, I see an order in my future. I hope you head over to the NAC site and enter your card. Can't wait to see how easy every one makes it look!

NAC #177

This was a little hard. I needed a swimming pool or a boat-something. So, here's my summer fun. We live in the mountains and we love to sit in our screen porch and listen to the birds and watch the wildlife. I didn't even put a bird on the card-no wildlife. Oh, well, it's summer. I used the Sitting Here set with the trees from In the Meadow. I really like the Sweet Sugarplum and Smoky Slate and the Emerald Envy is growing on me. Looking forward to seeing your art work soon on the Challenge site.
