Embellish Magazine Color Challenge

Today's post features a color and design challenge from Embellish Magazine.  The challenge was to create a invitation using the colors green, red and craft/gold. 

The invite I created is to a wedding.  I love the sentiment from Unity's May KOM.  I decided  to incorporate it along with some letter stickers from Cosmo Cricket.  It reads "join us...for happily ever-after".
The stamped sentiment says " once in a while in the middle of an ordinary life love gives us a fairytale." 

Hope you enjoy! If you would like to play along, you have until July 17th.

2 Sketches For You-Kazan's Sketch 56

Love the sketch challenges posted on 2 Sketches 4 You.  This week's sketch is no exception.

I created a card using my Unity Stamps (November KOM 09)...yes, I went way back.  I love the crossword stamp!  It has a TON of possibilities!

Have some extra time?  Why don't you join this week's challenge?  Enjoy!

Etsy Inspired Challenge

Today's post is all about inspiration.  Kimmieprout (on Etsy) designs polymer clay buttons.  The challenge on Etsy Inspired is to create something (card, layout, altered item) that brought you inspiration from the patterns and colors found on the designer's buttons.

I created this card by pulling the stamped images from the button in the Edithos collection.  I love the subtle pattern and simple design.  The stamps are from Unity Stamps (June KOM 2010).  Enjoy!
