woohoo my first challenge!!

woohoo!! I finally did it!! I ALWAYS check out Kristina's blog - she is such an amazingly talented lady -but up until now, I have just stalked, and drooled over everyone else's creations. But one of goals this year is step outside my comfort zone, and actually create more stuff, and trust in my own ideas! So, here is my first ever kwernerdesign.com inspiration colour challenge entry.

I am really happy with it, for a few reasons! 1) I know it is simple, but I like simple! 2) Its all mine!! 3) i got out of my comfort zone 4) i know next time I will do better! 5) there will be a next time!


I used the set Live your Dream from the Summer mini, with a chocolate chip base, pumpkin pie mat, then used pumpkin and old olive markers on whisper white for the flowers, pumpkin "thanks" and added a soft sky ribbon (don't have baja breeze here, and that looked the closest to me!) 'scuse the quality of the pic - I scanned it, and my computer does NOT like that!! that ribbon is the grosgrain double stitched, but it looks weird! and the "distressing" is not intentional - I need a new blade in my cutter, but do you think I can find the spare???

Awesome first challenge. I am new to the challenge thing too. It is amazing how following color schemes, or a sketch can really liven up a simple elegant card. I am making way nicer cards now that I try the challenges. It shocks me.
