I have another confession

(Looking for my challenge? It's here.)

A couple of weeks ago I admitted I was addicted to making calendars. Today, I am confessing that I am a card challenge junkie. I have three cards today and they are all for challenges.

The first is a new challenge I discovered. Lori's Purple Giraffes has the Color Dare Challenge. (ETA - here is the main Color Dare blog). Thanks Lori - this was a lot of fun! I have a hard time with this shade of blue but I think this turned out ok. I've just gotten into using kraft paper so had to try it. This is also for Sketch 121308 at Paper Craft Planet.

The next one is for some Splitcoast Challenges:
- Ways To Use It #257 - use an odd number of things (I used three colours, three stamps, three brads and three pieces of ribbon. I used one sentiment, one punch and one clip.)
- Sketch Challenge #267 - did this yesterday but it fit well with the Ways To Use It
- Colour Challenge #88 - green, purple and blue

Julie was pondering whether eggplant, green and burnt orange would go together. It inspired me to make this card. I think it turned out well. This is also for another Paper Craft Planet sketch - sk011610.

Thanks for stopping by. Now it's time to clean up my craft room - it is a disaster. Wish me luck. Call in a search party if you don't hear from me by tomorrow...

  1. Glenda, your card is GORGEOUS! I'm so glad you found the Color Dare. I linked your post up to the Mr. Linky on the Color Dare site so the rest of the DT could look at it and you can be in the running for Top 3 and Guest DT! The blog address is colordare.blogspot.com (just so you can find it next week!)
    Thanks so much for playing along. Your card is fabulous and I hope you join us again next week!

  2. BEAUTY!!! Love it, Glenda! OK, so I guess that means I better order that dress before it sells out, eh?! Cuz I can't go nekked. Well, I could, but I think it would take the spotlight off the Bride and that would not be good . . . *snarf*

  3. They are BEAUTIFUL, Glenda! I love them all. :)

  4. We might need to do a card challenge intervention on you!!! Looks like you are having fun! :)

  5. Ok... and just noticed your *certifiable* comment, LOL

  6. All of your cards are amazing! I too am addicted to card challenges :0) We should maybe get some counseling! LOL!

  7. Lovely cards! Thanks so much for playing along with the Color Dare this week!
