Dawn McVey's Color Challenge 1

Last month I came across a blog that was hosting a contest for a stamp giveaway for Papertrey Stamp Co. I had never heard of Papertrey, but all you had to do to win was leave a comment.
I do know how to comment and shockingly I won $100.00 worth of great stuff from them!
I now check out their designers blogs because they are just fun to look at and inspiring.
One of those designers, Dawn McVey, (dawnmcveytypepad.com) posted a color challenge a couple days ago and I decided to try it. I have never done a color challenge before but it was fun making a card with these colors.


Here is the first one. ( I made two)
This is for Kayla (so don't look at this Kayla!)


I used some of the supplies Papertrey sent me. The brown card stock, Beyond Borders stamps, and the other card stock and bird stamp is from Michael's and so are the little jewels on the tree and his eye. I used the scallop cutting edge on my Cutterpede cutter and the punches are Papershapers.

This card is for Bailey's friend Marissa WHOs birthday it is today.

Again, the card stock is Papertrey and Michael's, stamps are from Michael's. I used my Crop-o-dile to punch the holes in the scalloped circle and used pop-dots to raise the sentiment and hat.

That was fun.
