Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #179 - Fall Colors

Hello! Here it is again, another new challenge from Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog!  And this time we have the theme of  FALL COLORS!  Our sponsors are:
This week the challenge is: Fall Colours


Our sponsors this week are:

Polkadoodles
Prize ~ $15 Gift Certificate


Prize: $10 Gift Certificate for Images Only 


Prize: 3 Digital Images

Wow! Who can believe that it's almost Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner?? Another year has flown by! So for this challenge, Fall Colors, I chose to do the Marigold, The Darling Buds by Polkadoodles Designs.  Talk about a cutie! I love their images!

So for today, I chose to make a tag using my image. Here it is:

I used various layers of paper from The Paper Temptress. (Very good quality paper!). As you can see, they are all Fall Colors. I used 3D foam dots to "pop" my image on top of the orange paper. I added a yellow banner at the top and put gold rhinestone trim, and then added flowers. There are several different layers of twine for the top of the tag. A good friend of mine gave me some stickers that are very similar to "Dazzles", so I used gold as the trim around the layers. 

I hope that this has inspired you in some way, and that you will join in on the fun! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge - Thankful

Hello, crafters! Today begins a new challenge for us over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog!  This week the challenge is: Thankful

Our sponsors this week are:



Prize ~ 3 Digital Images



OddBall Art
Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate


Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate



Bugaboo Stamps


Prize ~ $12 Gift Certificate

Wow! What an array of sponsors! Love it! So much to choose from! But for me, I chose these amazing butterflies from Morgan's Art World - Garden 16.
Here is my card:

As you can see, I tried to match up the colors of the papers (from Paper Temptress) with as close to the colors of the butterflies as possible. And it seemed to work great! Yay! The blue paper is a textured paper....very fun to work with too! And those butterflies...wow! They were gorgeous and because of the shadowing on the images, it makes it so much easier to color.

I hope that this has inspired you to join us for this challenge! We love seeing your cards and projects!

Outlawz Color Challenge Week of November 6th, 2018

Holy cow! Is it already time for another week of challenges over at The Outlawz??  And over at the Color Challenge no less?? Yes, indeedy it is! And for the month of November, we have for our sponsor the amazing All Dressed Up!  (So be sure to check out the blog to see if you're a winner for the month of October!)





As you can see, we have chosen 3 colors for you to use...with a Twist of Just Add Lace! I love lace! Here is my card for this week's challenge:

I had won a digital stamp over at Conie Fong's Facebook page, so I thought she'd be perfect for lace! And the colors are amazing together (especially when you pull them from God's nature)!
