The first was the sketch at The Paper Craft Crew Challenge. I discovered this site about six weeks ago and have not yet had a challenge that didn't pique my interest and spark an idea.
Here's this week's one.
The second was at ColourQ, where I've only played once before.
As appealing to me as this colour palette was, it did present a problem: I have never seen, or heard, of Brocade Blue before. I'm guessing it was a colour before I became a Stampin' Up groupie. The nearest I could find in anything I owned was Marina Mist, so I hope that's ok. If not, well, I enjoyed making the card and I appreciated the opportunity to use my beloved Dictionary background stamp.
Update: Delighted to be named a Featured Artisan for this card at Paper Craft Crew.
