:{Embellish}: Color Challenge

Hello girlie, girls!!! Just wanted to stop quickly and share a couple of cards I made for the current Embellish Magazine Color Challenge. If you haven't given this a try I highly recommend you do so. Make sure you stop by their blog because there's a lot of inspiration and an awesome giveaway.

I have so fallen in love with these colors. I've been in a mood for purple since late summer and can't get over it. If it weren't for this challenge I would have never thought of pairing it with kraft and brown. So thanks girls ;) This is my second try at this challenge and love it. To view my first try you can go here.



The cards I created are simple. To create my striped pattern paper I took three color pencils and with a ruler drew stripes. I then punched out circle to create my little trendy tree. I adhered a heart covered in liquid emboss glossy finish (sorry for the bad pic quality).


With my leftover circles I created this second card. I really like the striped circles the best :)


Hope your week had an awesome jump start. As for me I'm still at the retreat. Learning lots and enjoying great fellowship :)

*Remember to keep checking in because any day now I'll be posting my giveaway*

Thanks for stopping.
Blessings,
Jessica
