Pink, Orange & Yellow

The weather is cold and snowy snowy so today is a good day for card making.  CR84FN has a color challenge on using pink, orange and yellow.  They are very festive, spring-like colors so I'm hoping they'll chase away the winter blues.  It is spring after all!

This is the card I created.  It's not what I originally had planned.  I have some paper with pink, orange and yellow flowers in a circle that I planned to use as a jumping off point.  However, when I got the sentiment and background finished I found that the circle was too big and you couldn't see the Thank in the sentiment.  Oh well, I think it still looks OK without the flower.  

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Say It In....Yellow and White

Annabelle stamps has a color challenge this week...yellow and white.  I really love a lot of the creations that their design team does.  Who knew that so many beautiful cards could be made with using only two colors?  One color really because I never seem to think that white counts :)

 I found it difficult to limit myself to just two colors but I think I did pretty good.  Of course I made a Thank You card.  Actually, I made 4 of them.  Each is slightly different; the pearls were in a different spot and a couple had a different yellow shape.

Yellow, Grey, Charcoal Thank You Cards

It's time to get back into making Thank You cards for AARCS.  I've got a litter of 4 newborn kittens right now so I've been busy taking care of staring endlessly at them.  AARCS has recently started rescuing more cats so I might make some cat thank you cards in the future.

The Play Date Cafe has a Charcoal, Ash, Butter color challenge going on this week

I made the following two cards using these colors

I'm entering these cards in the following chellenges:

EDIT: Oops, I guess I missed the deadline to submit for the Play Date Cafe challenge.
