CCEE and Stampin B's Challenges

Stampin' B's Challenge #47
Color Combo....Kraft, Brown, and Purple
Vicki issued her first challenge for the Stampin B team this week and it was a color challenge. We were to use the colors of kraft, brown, and purple.

I used this image and sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers from the Blackberries, Sunflower, and Bees set in the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection. I used a Martha Stewart border punch, some SU chocolate ribbon, and some chocolate brads. I colored the flower with Copics and used my SU piercing kit.

Can't wait to see the creations of the rest of the team with this deep, rich color combo.  Great challenge, Vicki.....and once again...welcome aboard!!!

CCEE Challenge
Color Challenge....Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, Black, and one Neutral (White or Ivory)
Also.....we were to dry emboss designer paper used on our card......OOPS!!!...I forgot about that part!!!

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!  I'll give myself the buzzer.  Until I uploaded this card, I did not realize I missed part of the challenge......so sorry, Ms. Charlene.  It was all my fault....I did not read carefully or forgot it after I read it......!!!!  Anyhow, Charlene was our hostess this month and she gave us some wonderful challenges.  And this one is right up there in fabulousness!!!  I used this Penny Black image along with a sentiment from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I used my Nesties, my SU piercing kit, and a few brads.  I colored with Copics.

Your purple lily is colored to perfection - beautiful card, Joanne!

That little dog - well, he told me he didn't "want no fancy paper behind him." It is absolutely adorable.

Great job on both challenges, GF!

I am rolling on the floor laughing my butt off because I forgot that part about my own challenge!!! So I get the BIG buzz this week! Too much on the brain for me, I reckon! LOL!

I am totally salivating over that gorgeous purple card, my friend. Wow! Kraft, brown, and purple.....I woulda never "thunk" to put those colors together and they are luscious together!

Your CCEE card is so adorable with that sweet pup image holding that balloon, too. And, wait a minute....you DID use dry embossing at least---hee! You're so cute, JoJo, giving yourself the buzzer.
