Today's colors for the color challenge are elegant eggplant, melon mambo, and river rock. I used the Elements of Stye and fussy got all three colors out. Am I insane?? I had a different idea first, but that didn't work out so I began cutting.
Thanks for looking!! I'm happy to say we have sun today and it's been a few weeks. now all we need is a little warmth.

Look at all the fussy cutting work. Holy cow, so beautiful done in all 3 of the featured colors today. Love the embellies and how you did the ribbon. The sentiment placement is just right.

Yes, you might be a bit insane to cut out all of those flowers (each done in today's colors)..but I understand the desire to do it and have done a bit of fussy cutting myself :) Love your lattice embossed panel..this turned out really pretty!

Kim, your CC cards are always worth a closer look....so pretty and so true to the challenge colors. Love the "Elements of Style" done in the 3 colors and put together in such a pleasing way. The bg texture is a wonderful choice.

Wow Kim, but this is beautiful. I can't believe you fussy cut out that image three times!!!! You sure did a fantastic job! I love how this turned out. And everything just looks so good when paired with that squre lattice folder. Love the ribbon treatment and little pearls too. We also have sun here in WI today and although it's not balmy, it's certainly warmer than it has been :)

Lots of fussy cutting that resulted in a awesome card. Well worth the time and no you are not insane.
