I've got to try this one tomorrow! I love these colors together. I had to work on paper work for taxes this morning and am now sitting in the church auditorium on my laptop while the kids have play practice for our Home school graduation! Soo glad they have DSL here! Off to check out the gallery (which I never do before I do a challenge oops!)

My entry to the challenge is awaiting approval. The blue you see is a paper behind the card to help it scan. The decorative paper has no yellow in it, but it looks that way after scanning. It is really more vintage in color. The ribbon is cream, too.

So glad to get to play one of your challenges again, Beth--it's been a long dry spell and hope to get back in the swing again (fingers crossed)! Have really missed this group, but have been watching from the balcony and enjoying everyone's fantastic artwork.

I could make cards from this color combination ALL day. I just love the browns and creams together. Reminds me of Coffee & Cream (yummy). Thanks Beth for a fun challenge. Here's mine.<------

Mine fits the challenge, although it was made in January for a masculine card swap I participated in. As a relatively new demonstrator, I was using what I had, and ended up with a corny pun but it fit the theme and it was fun to make.

You aren't kidding! Wouldn't it be great to be able to quit our day jobs and just stamp all day (while still getting our paychecks, of course)!!!

RICH BUTTERFLY
OK...let me just say that I DID NOT go looking thru all the cards before sitting down and making mine!! I just read the instructions and got an idea in my head and made it, but as I uploaded it, I browsed the others and was surprised to see several other butterfly cards made in this challenge. *sigh* just goes to show ya...anything you think or do, someone out there has already been there, done that! I hope it's unique in it's own way though???!!!

A little late with my card, but it looked like so much fun, that I had to fit this into my evening as I watch "Dancing with the Stars" .

Default I finally finished!

It has taken me all day to play. I was so busy making triangle trifolds all day! When I first saw this challenge, I was so sad that I don't yet have Doodle This and any ivory craft ink. Then, I remembered that I had a wedding card to be made.

Took me a while becuase I combined it with the layout challenge 108, the one that had all the little pieces to fill in.

But, all in all, I love how it came out!

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...06722&cat=8590

Thanks for looking!

Well this was a stretch for me. I don't often use these colors, I like brights. So browns said Dogs to me. I love dogs so it got my feeble mind going. And the limited colors really got me to layer more. I need to layer more anyway. Thanks again for another challenge that pushed and proded at my limited creativity at the end of a work day. Besides, it keeps me from snacking in the kitchen. It was hard to watch Dancing with the Stars and stamp though.

This was a great challange, I combined it with Sat. inspiration challange too, I had this card invisioned since saturday, so todays challange just helped me pick out the colors. This is my first time using this set, and I love it! Brown is my fav color so it wasn't to much of a strech for me to make: Bundle of Coffee with Cream

My TLC108 card. Amazing how beautiful browns can be. I finally used the slit punch scalloped edge. What a nice effect. Enjoy, Nancy
