Courtney's Closet and some Flower Cards

I had to make a card for Libby's Courtney's Closet challenge - take a look at this cutie and tell me you're not inspired!


Here's my card:

Image is from Pollycraft and the dp I created myself using a floral image from Bugaboo that I colored with my computer and used to create my own paper! Using the rgb codes for the appropriate SU colors, I got it to pretty closely match the Tempting Turquoise and Gable Green paper that I used. Fun stuff!

Here are a couple of flower cards I made after LeAnne sent me to this website and I spent some time gobbling up her delicious freebies!



The bottom card is another experiment with making my own designer paper. Fun stuff I tell you! This image is from Bugaboo too, colored and laid out on an 8 X 10 grid. The possibilities are endless!

Thanks for visiting!

Chris
Adorable little girl!!!
Love your paper. So now I need to try and see if I can do that at a later date.
A little blurb from Pablo Picasso
seems appropriate. "I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it."
