Hello There

Here's another card for the same two challenges as my last one:

I thought the colors in this piece of Basic Grey PB&J paper were close enough to the Nacho Average Challenge colors:

Well, maybe except for the green, but there is green in there, sorta, maybe.

And then there's the Dahlhouse Designs Wanna Sketch:

where I didn't do anything different at the top. Okay, I started with both of these challenges and morphed them a little bit.

Let's look at that card again:

I looove that horizontal strip of paper over the busy floral paper. Also please notice the funky blue brads in the centers of the flowers. I have eleventy bazillion brads, and not one navy blue. Not. One. I was going to color them with either a Sharpie or some embossing powder, but that sounded like work, and I usually wear most of it when I try that, so I went with this pleasant shade of blue. The sentiment was stamped in Navy, though.

I'm off to link these babies. I'll be back later with a few more challenge cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stuff I used: miscellaneous brads, and the following:


  1. I love your take on the sketch and that horizontal strip is just perfect.

  2. Gorgeous card! I love all of those blue flowers! Thanks for joining us at Nacho Average Challenges again!

  3. Got a billion brads, but a navy ain't one! I feel your pain. How is it we can have so many of one thing, but it still isn't the right one. Geez. I love how you balanced out the busy paper with the simple strip of paper for those flowers to just pop out. I love that you were inspired twice by wanna sketch, that makes me giddy!!!

  4. Those white flowers really pop off the solid strip. I think that blue of the brads is in that pp somewhere! No navy brads here either.

  5. Great card! I love the papers you used and the blue brads totally work!

  6. I love that paper!!! So fun!

  7. Very stunning card! Love the white flowers with the navy brad! Thanks so much for joining us at Nacho Average Challenges!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
