Get out your sunglasses for this post

Happy Sunday!  First can I just remind you about this post here, were I stamped little Lily?  Well over at The Paper Players I was named one of the cut above for this challenge.  That was super exciting, I am so thrilled!  Thank you to Nance for picking my card!!!! :)

Now I want to share with you a card I made for two challenges this week.  The first challenge is over at The Play Date Cafe.  Check out these colors!  They are so rich and regal.  It really is funny how things come around again, because I think these were the colors of my brother's first wedding, in like 1997- turquoise and purple.  I have to tell you though, it was the styles of the dresses and hairdoos, etc. that made that combo *special*.  It sure was awsome at the time though....like totally!  :)  Anyway, you can see in the PDC challenge their color is closer to magenta, I didn't have much of that color, so I used Razzleberry instead.

The second is from the CAS[e] This Sketch blog.  You can see I went for a direct interpretation of the feather, it was just too perfect to pass up.   I struggle with clean and simple (though I suppose my little bathing beauty is considered CAS).  The more I look at a card, the more I want to keep filling the space and filling the space....until I've over done it.  So I think I did pretty well with the CAS aspect of this card.  I am not sure that I like the card though.  I think if you stare at it too long it just might burn your retinas.... What do you think?  I'll take an honest opinion or two.  Maybe it is good for a teenage girl?

I have some other cards to show you later this week that I am much more pleased with so please come back and check them out!
