Happy Colors

I decided to try some of the challenges that are on the web - hoping that will inspire me to create outside my comfort zone.

Today I did a challenge with Create With Connie and Mary.  They are SU! only and the colors were Regal Rose, Marina Mist and Sahara Sand.

Color Coach-007

 I love - adore  actually Marina Mist so I decided to give this a try.
Sorry for the photo quality - my computer died last month and with it the software I used for editing - I need to investigate and get new software - thinking of splurging for PhotoShop

I've been seeing lots of pinwheels lately and had to give it a try - This is using the Subtles designer paper (its easy to do - just cut a 3 inch square and cut from the corners to close to the center. Put a glue dot in the center and fold everyother corner - put a button or brad in the middle.)
Its difficult to see in this photo but the stem of dsp is actually on a sahara sand stem punched with the scallop trim border punch.
supplies: Regal Rose, Marina Mist and Sahara Sand Cardstock, doily, Lattice embossing folder, scallop trim border punch, button, linen thread, subtles dsp, Bring on the Cake stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by - I hope to be more consistent in my crafting - so I hope to see you again soon
