Marjorie's Color Challenge #22...

Hey there, TGIF!!!! :D I am so glad Friday is here!!!! I have a busy weekend planned but most of it involves cleaning my apt. and re-organizing some things...especially things in my scrap room, I have got to get a hold of it before it goes too bad!!! LOL!!! :D Then Sunday we are having a cook out at my dad's house and gonna hang by the pool!!! :D Well this card I have to show you today is for Marjorie's Color Challenge. Marjorie chose the colors Cranberry, Twilight, Outdoor Denim and New England Ivy. These are colors that I hardly gravitate too, but I thought these were perfect colors for a Father's Day card. There is really not much going on with this card ( it just might be the simplest card I've done) and since it was going to my dad I didn't want it to be too froo froo!!!! My card is 5 1/4" square, I just {heart} square cards!!!! Anywho, I used Cranberry for my base and added a piece of Outdoor Denim CS that I ran through my Cuttlebug using the Spots & Dots folder. I then added some Twill Ribbon and the only piece of Twilight CS I had to go over the Outdoor Denim CS. I also added some big silver brads to each end. For the "Happy Father's Day" I used the Hodgepodge Alpha {love it} and stamped it in Outdoor Denim ink onto White Daisy CS. I then layered it onto a piece of New England Ivy CS. It's hard to tell in the pic, but I did use it. Then I just pop dotted it onto my card and voila, done!!! I'm not really sure I am all too happy with it so I just might have to make another one, but we'll see it might just grow on me, or not! Well thanks for stopping by today!!!! :D

Stamps: Hodge Podge Alpha (CTMH) Paper: White Daisy, Cranberry, Twilight, Outdoor Denim & New England Ivy CS (CTMH) Ink: Outdoor Denim (CTMH) Accents: Silver Brads & 3-D Foam Squares, Twill Ribbon (CTMH), CB Spots & Dots



Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D

I love it! It is simple, but perfect for a "dad" card! Gotta love that Hodge Podge Alpha set, too. Oh, and the twill ribbon adds a great effect to the card!
