Truly A Challenge

Do you look at a challenge you're given sometimes 
and find it to be truly a challenge?

That's how I felt with the Create With Connie 
and Mary color challenge.  As soon as I saw it, 
I thought, "Oh, okay.  I can do this one" and 
began to gather all my supplies.
And then after beginning my crafting, I had the 
darndest time figuring out how to get the 
Watermelon Wonder into the mix.  I finally figured
 it out by sponge daubing a sweet little flower edge 
in the bright, springy color.
I made a few of the cards, and decorated the inside, too.
Hope you're able to take the time to get 
inky today ~ Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Julia I just love how you used predominantly Mossy meadow for your card and incorporated that piece of Botanicals DSP, then added just a hint of each of the other colours to complete your beautiful clean and simple cards. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!

  2. Hi neighbor - it's great to see a familiar name! What a lovely layout, and I love the minimal use of Watermelon Wonder - it makes the the flower so eyecatching and sweet! Thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

  3. I love your clean and elegant card. I like the use of the DSP and the sponging of the Watermelon Wonder. Very handsome. Thank you for stamping along with the Create with Connie and Mary challenge!

  4. I love that you concentrated on Mossy Meadow as you main color with just a touch of watermelon and suede. It's wonderfully clean and simple! Thanks for playing along with us at Create with Connie and Mary!

  5. I love how you did just that little 'pop' of color on your flower! BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

  6. Of COURSE you can do it...and with flair! Love the CAS design and simple touch of color...perfect! (Didn't realize you live near my old neighborhood in North Canton...we moved back to Columbus 10 years ago!) Thanks for playing along with the color challenge last week on Create with Connie and Mary...and congrats on the Top 3 pick, too!
