Today's card uses Makeesha's Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #11. I have had the honor of being Makeesha's July Guest Designer, and it has been so much fun! She always has the best challenges ... sometimes a sketch, sometimes an inspiration piece, and other times a color challenge. Check out what Makeesha's design team has created ... Cindy, Karen, Kirsty, Amy, and Renee.
Another talented team of designers recently made their collective debut in blogland, Pals Paper Arts. Their very first challenge is a color challenge of Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, and Chocolate Chip.
As for my card, I think there's alot going on and much too busy for my liking (some days you got it, some days you don't!). What do YOU think?
Just want to point out a couple of things that didn't show up real well in the photo: 1) there are two rows of paper piercing on the horizontal Chocolate Chip CS strip, and 2) I used Aqua and Pink Stickles (non-SU) for the flower centers.
