PCCC134 and ColourQ282

I seldom enter a card into more than one challenge. Somehow it just seems like lost card-making opportunity, but I'm making an exception here. Two challenges met in my mind and married happily.

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.

Card: Whisper White, Black, Marina Mist, Soft Sky DSP
Stamps: SU Dictionary background, SU Banner Blast, Clearly Besotted Many Mini Messages
Ink: Black, Marina Mist
Other: Chevron embossing folder, Marina Mist buttons, Hello You thinlit die, Black embroidery thread, small banner punch.


  1. So pretty, Jan, the Marina mist is a great substitute! Thanks for playing with us at the colourQ this week!

  2. Hi Jan, welcome back again to the Paper Craft Crew challenges. I'm glad you are enjoying them! I love your beautiful marriage of two challenges this week, what a great color combo. I think the "hello" sentiment makes for a very cheerful card. Thanks for joining us!

  3. Such a great card for both challenges Jan. I Love your graphic greeting along with the Dictionary and the buttons make a lovely accent too. Thanks for joining us again at The Paper Craft Crew :-)

  4. Congrats on being the featured artisan! What a fabulous card!
