Challenge Cards

Happy Christmas Eve Day!
Are you ready? I've still got wrapping to do...Ok...start....lol
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope that you are spending the holidays with your loved ones.
Yesterday afternoon after getting home from a belated birthday lunch with a girlfriend...I went down to make a couple of challenge cards.
Now this first one frightened me....So Saffron, Cameo Coral and Orchid Opulence! Wow eh?
This is what I managed to come up with for the Colour Challenge.
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes; Cardstock: White, So saffron, Orchid opulence, Cameo coral; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Copics, Silver Brads, Lg Oval Punch, Scalloped Edge Punch, Stickles, Dimensionals
This card is for the Holiday Extravaganza Challenge #4.
You were to to make a birthday card with the following:
1 Designer paper
2 Cardstock colours with a neutral
3 punches
The only embellishment could be ribbon.
I used the Flight of the Butterfly and the sentiment from Crazy for Cupcakes.
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Crazy for Cupcakes; Cardstock: So Saffron, Bashful Blue Textured, WW and Washington Apple DP; Inks: Black, Riding Hood Red; Accessories: 1 3/4" circle punch, Scalloped edge punch, Photo corner punch, Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
