This is the card I made for My Time Made Easy Pretty Pallette Challenge # 80. I Used only the four colors when I colored the image with colored pencils, just the pressure I used on the pencil made the different shades of the same color. I got the image from the web and fussy cut it out. I stamped the “for you”. The papers are from various unknown, light brown, kraft(my camera makes it look yellowish, but it’s not, blue and aqua (flowery background). The flower stamp inside is from Stampin up. The ribbon is a crocheted lace. I need to understand my camera better because the colors are right in my project but my camera makes them off a little. Anyways here is my card.

  1. Oooooo… Correna this is lovely! Great colouring job. I love how the flowers cascade across the card. The lace is a nice feature too. Did you crochet that yourself? Thanks for playing along with the MTME palette challenge this week! Tracy:)

      Oh, I am so glad you like it. Usually I just do more quick cards for challenges, but I thought I should put more effort into them, since they are challenges after all. Thank you for liking it. I really enjoyed doing the “more effort”!! No, unfortunately I can’t crochet, I have tried but just cant get the hang of it. It is like ribbon, it comes on a roll. I have had it for a long time, I got it at a fabric store that is no longer in business, but I am sure its out there somewhere, I just havent looked for it. Thanks Tracy.

      Thank you, I dont have a die cutting machine so I “fussy” cut everything out, except I do have a straight paper cutter so I can cut my papers in half or what not. Thanks for having the challenges.

      Thank you so much. I dont always do the insides like this either but I loved the colors with this challenge and being a gatefold card I thought maybe it would be nice to do. Thanks for stopping.
