Color Challenge


I submitted this card for the color challenge over at Two Peas. It called for a red, green and white card -- but no Christmas cards. This was my first color challenge. With the challenge I did for Wednesday Stamper last week, that makes two firsts in one week! Since I've started blogging, I've delved into some new territory --one of the reasons I'm glad I started a blog. Another reason is I've met new people on-line, been exposed to new art through other bloggers, and felt a sense of being part of a community. I've been trying to explain this to DH who keeps asking me, "Why are you doing this? I mean what's the purpose of it?" I imagine if you are reading this, you get it.
With all the tagging going on (no one tagged me, but I'm playing anyway!) I thought I'd share a few things about myself : 1.) I have never participated in a swap. 2.) I have never made an ATC 3. ) I head a card ministry at our church where we make encouragement cards for our members. 4.) I am a frustrated collage artist (for lack of a better word). I love the art form but my mind tells me it has to make sense. 6.) I have restless legs which means it's hard to sit still at night, so I don't watch much TV or read. But when I am creating something my mind is completely engaged and I can sit for hours with no problem. Which is really a good thing.
For this card I used paper by Basic Grey. The female image is by Art by Moonlight. The script and text is by Stampington.

Love the card. Collage can be a challenge, but worth pursuing. I combine scanned images and stamps on some of my collage attempts.

Gorgeous card! I love the look of collage but have absolutely no talent in that area. You on the other hand...have it nailed!
Not to worry...I haven't been tagged either...but I do have you listed as one of my favorite blogs.
