A House of Cards

It's all about the challenge...

I had the opportunity to be the guest designer this week over at the Color Combos Galore challenge blog. What fun! I love color and I love a challenge, so I had to say yes (even though I had to make a layout ;) ). I got to choose two colors (the light blue and green), and then was given a selection of color combos. From that group, I got to choose one combo to work with. I decided on this one:

Color Combos Galore #97


For some reason, that pop of royal blue just caught my eye. I was a little nervous about it at first, but decided to challenge myself. I ended up really happy with my choice.

Make sure to check out what the CCG designers did with the color combo too. Tons of awesome inspiration! I hope you all get a chance to take the challenge too. :)

Next are my latest cards from the Sketch This blog. I just LOVE Janelle's sketches, and I am sure you will too. They always get my creative juices flowing.

Sketch This #74

Sketch This #75


Again, don't forget to check out the Sketch This design team came up with. I always love to see how everyone makes the sketch their own!

Well, in case I don't make it back before Thursday, I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Try not to stuff yourselves too much. ;) Hugs!!!
