Delightful Challenge

This weeks Delightful Challenge was a difficult one at first. This week you are to use no Designer Paper & no embellishments. It was hard to not reach for ribbon or other embellies. I embossed the base for texture. Punch Mettallic frames the image and gives some shine. Lili Skunk & Skunk Sentiments was printed twice. The first one I colored and the second one I just colored the flowers and cut them out to give the image a bit of dimendsion. Have fun creating and check out the wonderful DT's projects. All papers are from Paper Temptress.

Razzleberry Overload

I needed a cople cards and decided that I wanted to use Razzlebery as my main color. One because I love the color and two I am trying to use the ribbon I have before buying anymore. So far I have stuck to this but I know it won't last. Paper Temptress is having all the ribbon 30% to clear out for new stuff. The current ribbon is fine just the distributor is not. So stock up on this great sale.
