For this week's color challenge---pink, rose, and green---and to make a C'mas card for bonus points :)
I am so in awe of everyone who can whip up the most beautiful cards and projects on the same day of the challenge! It takes me forever. I have to think and stew and sift and re-think and re-stew and re-sift and sketch and re-sketch...LOL, I consider myself SpeedyQuick (as Junie B Jones would say) if I get a card out the next day for the previous day's challenge! And if I can get it done the same Week the challenge was posted? Well. Just color me amazed :)
For this challenge I didn't have rose petals or limeade so I used rose red and kiwi kiss. It's subtle and hard to see in the photo but the image is stamped on graph dp. And I sponged rose ink on the ribbon to dirty it up some.
Thanks for looking! I'm off to look at today's sketch challenge---maybe I'll get that one done by NEXT week's sketch challenge. Sigh. Hope springs eternal doesn't huh?

Miss Minx- I hear ya! I am a stewer and a rethinker, but what the hey, it is all fun and I love to see the cards no matter when they are posted. BTW, love your vintage card and how you pulled the colors together for this challenge. Love the dirtied ribbon too! TFS! I am still thinking about mine, hehe!

Beautiful! I totally understand your amazement at how fast some of these gals get great cards out. I take days! But that's just the way I work, and as long as I enjoy myself and something I like comes out of it, it's okay. In your case, totally worth all the thinking and stewing! A terrific vintage card!
