A Cup of Coffee for the Color Throwdown
Couple of offerings for this week's Color Throwdown. As I have been leaning towards fall colors lately, this was a perfect challenge for me, but I was stumped for the theme.
The coffee card clearly has the 'argyle-style'. The background was a repeat pattern I stamped with a Studio G stamp. I used Colorbox Chalk Ink. The coffee cup and verse are from The Paper Company and the ribbon is KI Memories. I love when I can find things that coordinate, so I really got lucky here.
The fall card is one I have done before, but the colors seemed just so right for this challenge, so I wanted to include it so you can see that the sky's the limit with color challenges.
Again I used a Studio G stamp for the focal point, SEI paper and Spellbinder Die Cut leaves were created using 'the bug'.
So how has your day been? I have felt a tad under the weather today, which is sad because it was a beautiful day. Tomorrow promises fairly severe thunderstorms followed by temps near 100 over the weekend, so the mild weather is on it's way out....for now.
I hope to get a post off to you again later this evening, but if I don't, know that I am getting some much needed rest. I would like to spend some fabulous time with you this weekend, when our blogs tend to be quieter, so I am gearing up for that!
