Geust Designer for Color Dare Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!
    I am SO honoured to be the guest designer this week for Color My Heart blog this week :)
The colours were Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta, and Olive! I also wanted to try the direct to paper technique so I have come up with four cards..... This first one is my favourite...I hope it was ok to add Coco colour too?
 This one I liked too, just a bit more masculine and simple, but I liked the wood grain look. I just dragged the ink onto the cardstock...very simple yet dramatic.
 This one was my first attempt. I was trying not to use any additional colours.
 This one I was trying not to use as much white space, but then I stamped the flower in the 3 colours and it didn't show well so I over stamped with coco... its my least fav. but I figured I would post it so maybe others wouldn't be intimidated and see how the steps to a card you really love sometimes takes a bit :)
So what do you think? I hope I have done a good job as a guest designer and I hope you are inspired to make your own cards :)

Christmas card for Sketch #20

Hello crafty friends! This is my second post for the day! Love getting things done :) This week at Atlantic Hearts sketch blog this is the supper cute sketch....
I made a Christmas card :) Using retired papers but I wanted to use snowflakes intead of the hearts so this is what I have come up with.....

What do you think?
Used the cricut for the snowflakes and since I have never sewen on a card I just edge distressed the pieces.

I have also entered this card into a "new to me" blog called Here Come The Boys and it is only for masculine/boy cards! What a cool idea!!

Hope you are making your Christmas cards! It has really helped me take some of the stress out of the year by doing them early :)

color my heart # 59

Hello crafty friends!
     This weekend I made a card for the colormy heart dare #59. The dare was to use slate and whisper with another colour. Well I chose black....does that count? I just love the Huntington paper pack!! it is sooo versitile. This is the card I made with it......
I scored the top portion and added the gems. Sweet is embossed for extra blackness (?word L0L)
So what do you think?
