Kim's Card Challenge

Okay, so when I had the SU get together at my Mom's place Kim challenged all of us cardmaking gals to make a card not using our favorite colors. For instance: I am not allowed to use Avacado Green or yellow, Julie isn't allowed to use blue or green, Kim isn't allowed to use pink or purple, Val isn't allowed to use any yellow, Louise isn't allowed to use any brown, Charly isn't allowed to use purple or green. Now we aren't just talking not using cardstock here...there isn't allowed to be any hints of our favorite (most popular color) we use on the card. This is including patterned paper, ink, embellishments, here is the card that I came up with :)!! It has a bit of an Asian look to it...

If you want to make this card here is what you will need:


~Light brown weave Cardstock from Carousel

~Chocolate chip cardstock from Carousel

~Patterned paper from a the 8*8 "Far East Stack" of paper from Michael's by DCWV

~ a small scrap piece of White flat cardstock from Carousel


Brilliance Black ink pad

Stamp set:

~ Hero Arts Clear Acrylic "Butterfly" stamp set

~Hero Arts Clear Acrylic "Sentiments" stamp set


Eyelets, crop-a-dile, white ribbon from Michael's, SU corner rounder, photo stickers

Thanks, Kim for challenging us and I look forward to seeing what everyone else created too :)! I dare you to be challenged this week :)! I have sort have changed the way I write out the "recipe" for what I used to make the card, what do you think?? Do you like it the way it is now, or the way I had it before??

Oooh, I likey a lot! lol :) Great job on the challenge! I just finished mine...I'm gonna post it, but I'm also gonna try to do all my cards within the challenge this week. OMG it's hard, though! All my cardstock or patterned paper seems to be blue or green! lol :) It definitely makes ya have to think outside the box!

Looks like Saturday is a good night for everyone for our girls night, but I'll keep ya posted. We're just waiting on Kim to see if she's free that night to come over.

Talk to ya soon!
