It’s a Double Challenge!


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again over on the Riley and Company blog. This week our challenge hostess is Mwah!

Today is International Children's Book Day and also Hans Christian Anderson's Birthday. So get your inspiration from a Children's Book for the challenge this week.

This month I am also a Guest Designer for The Color Throwdown Challenge Blog …. how exciting and a little scary too as color challenges are probably the hardest for me LOL!

Here are the colors we have to work with this week ….

For my card  I used Riley and Company’s Flower Bonnet , isn’t she adorable she reminds me of the Nursery Rhyme Mary Mary Quite Contrary with all the flowers in her basket Smile


Here is the inside of my card …. I must confess I got one of the colors confused with another color with a similar name which I use a lot when I first made my card so Riley/Sophie is stamped in the wrong color. I was able to pull my card apart so I could use the correct color everywhere but here. I also used the sentiment Make Your Life a Fairy Tale on the right hand side of my card.
