Blog Challenge #54....AND Say Good-Bye Series


Happy 4th! No, sorry this post is not patriotic, but is going to do double duty: fits the blog Challenge and fits into the Say Good-Bye Series that I began earlier this week.....haven't used this set in awhile, but always liked it....and it's soon retiring!

The Challenge this week was Color Blocking....and I have to admit, it's something I'm not really very good at, but I gave it a go. This pink "beauty" was inspired by a card I saw briefly in the newest edition of Paper Crafts, which I don't think has hit the newsstands.....but those who subscribe already have it in their possession. My girlfriend shared it over dinner the other night and when I saw this card, I just knew I had to CASE it. Well, my feeble old brain has surely distorted what I originally saw, so this is my version!


Stamps: Polka Dots & Paisley
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, White Craft, Basic Gray
CS: Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Misc: 1/2" Round Punch, White Taffeta Ribbon, Horizontal Slot Punch


Don't forget to visit the other participating bloggers! Some took the holiday weekend off from blogging, but there is still plenty to see. Have a safe holiday!

What the heck do you mean not good at it! This is beautiful. I love that you were able to do color blocking in monochromatic style. Love it.

Great job Barb. You did a great job on your color blocks...love the way you combined the two different designs. This was always one of my favorite sets...sad to see it go. Have a happy and safe Independence Day!
