Challenge Yourself

Both of these cards today are made for the Verve September Challenges. This first one is a color challenge and I must say that I would not have chosen these colors BUT....... I love them now. They are all rich colors and really do fit well together! The image is SU Upsy Daisy which is truly one of my fav sets. I used the MS border punch floral lace on the one end and the nestabilities butterfly- is it not beautiful? The next card is a sketch challenge which I love- but I also vowed to start using my stack of SU DSP before I go and buy more. I am like many of you- love it, hoard it and then just keep buying more (sound familiar to you? ) Well come on- use it- it is beautiful and so I am challenging you all to pick a pack and start working on it.

I hope you enjoy these cards- I would like to add that I am amazed at how quickly I can make a card if I am not coloring the image! Phew........... I didn't realize how intense those magnolia cards are!

Heidi, now you know my secret for not coloring images! Both of your cards are wonderful! I love the color combos of the two cards. I often thought of taking apkg of DSP and making as many cards from it as I could before putting the rest away or even trying to use it up all at once!
