The first card was created for the color challenge this week. I really wasn't happy with how it turned out... just too much stuff going on! So I never ended up posting it on SCS. It's kinda grown on me now though... so I figured I'd post it here for your opinion.... too much stuff??? I really like how the second card turned out.... especially the ribbon treatment.














Let me tell you about this card.... just before creating it I was reading a magazine on Arts & Crafts styling... I love this type of home decor and work for a company that makes all the tiles that go into STickley furniture.... basically the leader in this type of furniture. Anyways.... I'm getting side tracked here. I just wanted to point out that while it wasn't intentional I ended up with alot of craftsman styling in this card. Kinda funny how things that surround us influence us so much!







The last card was created for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge located in the forum on SCS. Kim comes up with some really cool sketches. I particularly loved this one because it gave me the opportunity to use up some Basic Grey Figgy scraps.



I'm gonna challenge my readers to make a card using this sketch as well...... If you do one and post it on SCS - just put the keywords MFTSC04 on it. I would to see what everyone comes up with! - In the mean time.... how about letting me know which card you like the best and why. I really love reading the comments and reasons everyone likes a specific card. - Thanks for reading

The first card is busy.. but you pull it off! I think the bright colours, do it.. and the lines are so geometric that it works! :)

I think my fave is the leaf card.. love what you did with the ribbon! :)

Hi Michelle,

I really like the last card but the ribbon treatment on the second one is worth casing.

Hi Michelle, another group of lovely cards. The Christmas card is my favourite. The design and papers appeal to me. It really catches my eye.

Great cards. Totally love the third one. The four different squares of background paper look great and I love how the tree is setting on the scalloped square.

I absolutely ADORE the Give THanks card. I think the ribbon treatment is fantastic. Definitely have to case this one! Your designs are lovely.

I adore the first card - those colors are delightful and yes it's busy but it totally works. The second one is fabulous because of the ribbon, what a gorgous way to tie it up. And the 3rd - wow I am in love with the designer papers you chose and how you put them together. this is the first time that I truly cannot and will not pick just one favorite.
