Color Throwdown Challenge #99

This week the Color Throwdown Challenge was one of my very favorite color combos. Even so, I really struggled to come up with something. I'm getting tired of doing the same old card over and over. I wanted to push myself a bit. This is what I came up with. I actually like it quite a bit. It's like vintage meets funky. :) What do you think? Did I do this awesome color combo justice?

Hope you liked my card! Leave some love if you feel the love!

Operation Write Home blog tour!!

This weekend Operation Write Home is having a "Happy Birthday" themed blog tour in honor of the 4th of July. Ya know. Being that it's when we celebrate the birth of this great nation and all.

Wait. You say you have never heard of OWH?!? WELL! It is only one of the best organizations out there. They send blank cards overseas to our brave soldiers so that they have something handmade to send letters home in. Isn't that awesome?!? Ya I know!

Anyway! I have a few of cards to share with ya.

This first one is based off a sketch 2S4Y. I have been trying to do a few sketch challenges lately just to get myself back in the card making groove. I decided to make a "Any Hero" card to be sent to a deployed soldier. Yet another thing that OWH does. Seriously. They are awesome.

This next card is a birthday card I made using a retired Stampin' Up Simply Scrappin' kit. I love these kits! Even though they are really meant for scrapbooking I have been able to give them a second life making cards! Woohoo for double duty eh?

This next card is actually made using the SAME kit!! I know! Awesome right? I love that I can get one card that is totally girly cute (above) and one that is funky fresh out of the same kit. Gotta love SU! for that! Sometimes I really wish I was a Demo but... such is life.

Well I hope you enjoyed what I shared today! Have a great holiday! Remember to be safe and most of all remember those who are off fighting for a the freedoms we enjoy.

Leave me some love if you feel the love!
