TSG49: Color Challenge

Monday, April 5, 2010

G'day friends!

What a F.A.B.ulous weekend we had here in New England!! Easter was fun, but that fine weather we had was AWESOME!! It was perfect weather for Easter weekend that for the first time since Syd was born ('05) we could actually have the egg hunt outside! It was great and I would share some pics but I forgot my camera! Doh! The first time ever I could have had some decent photos and I forget the camera - grrrrr! Never mind, there will be other times.

Ok, this week's There She Goes Challenge (TSG49) is brought to us by our fabulous Trendsetter, Heather Pulvirenti! Her challenge for us is to use the colors Lemon Yellow, Grass Green and Aqua.


Don't those colors sound so spring-like? I thought so, so I pulled out the recently released Spring Fever set, what I have left of my Farm Fresh paper by October Afternoon, and with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC63), I managed to whip up this cute little card! I LOVE this color combination!! It's so fresh and clean looking! And this sketch is pretty much my style too - clean and crisp.

For that center panel, I first sponged the sky in with SU's Soft Sky, then I tore a Post-It note in half and sponged in the grass with Old Olive. Then I stamped the bench seat in Timber Brown and heat set clear embossing powder over the top to make is shine just a bit. And that's it!

We'd really love for you to join us on this challenge, so all you have to do is create a card using the provided color combo, then go to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of that challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (April 12). The winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

Thank you so much for popping in today! I hope you have a fabulous and productive week!

This is lovely! I really like the mix of patterns in the paper. They complement the clean lines of the bench. The fence punch is a nice addition.
