Two Stamping Challenges in One Card!

bright_happiness_wm1I sat down this evening to get started on my card kits for Saturday.  And instead, I decided to try out a card sketch challenge.  Then, I decided to get more ambitious and checked out SCS to see what color challenges were up.  I haven’t participated in any SCS challenges before and I’ve been meaning to for a while.  Its funny, I actually had a moment where I felt like I was cheating by using a card sketch.  Then I had to laugh at myself and say “inspiration is a good thing”.  No need to reinvent the wheel everytime.  Especially if you don’t have a design sitting top of mind, itching to get down on paper.


I ended up changing the sketch challenge that I used.  But thought it would work well with the stamps I choose.  And the colors… my oh my the colors!  I picked this recent bold bright challenge because I can never seem to get myself to use many of my Bold Brights (heck, my Gable Green was still in the shrink wrap and I’ve had it for about a year!)  I always gravitate towards the Earth and Jewel tones in Earth Elements and Rich Regals.  So, I figured I needed to do this challenge to break out of my mold.  I think the blue flowers are bit bright for me, but I decided to stick with it once I had it stamped.
