In the spirit of new releases....

Gina K had her "New Release" party on SCS the other night, and along with it there were a few challenges that were presented. I thought I'd do a couple of them and see what I'd come up with. Currently I only have one of her sets "Love You To Pieces" that was put out in awareness of Autism, and I used that on this card:





I had fun with this card. The sketch was planed for us and in another challenge they gave us the colors, so yes, I paired two challenges together to come up with this one. Taken With Teal, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sky, what a combination! I also used my new SU! Chunky Glitters on the pieces, they really POP! Gina K's Store

The next card was also a challenge, but I used my new SU! Sassy Suzie set. This chic is too funny!! This one saying is "Your friendship is the most uplifting thing in my life without underwire!" She's a hoot!




Along with the color challenge on this one: using Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac and YoYo Yellow, we had to make the card into a scene. I took apart one of my punches to make the scalloped awning above her. I just chopped up some grass below her. She was masked so that I could put in the flowers behind her. And I touched up her cup, shoes and bling with some Crystal Effects.

I like challenges, they start you off with a direction, that way you aren't left wondering what to do. I hope you like :)
