Color Challenge Week 2

This week's color challenge from Dee-Ann (see it at http://sparklythingsdee-ann.blogspot.com/) was Indigo. When she posted the challenge, I was actually enjoying my protein shake and looked down at it to realize it is sortof indigo in color. So I tried to take a photo before I drank it all up and here is what I ended up with.




I know its not a great photo and I dont' even really think the color came out as indigo (as if I even know what that color is!), but I tried. I really do enjoy these color challenges - it makes you look at things different I think. At least when I am trying to find an object in that color.

Today is my sister Michelle's birthday. She is super busy (and I hardly see her anymore), so I'm hoping she won't see this post till after I give her the card so it doesn't ruin the surprise. We are leaving tomorrow for out trip, so we will celebrate her birthday (and my mom's whose is on Monday) next weekend. Happy Birthday Michelle! Here is the card I made for my sister.

All supplies Stampin' Up! 1990-2007 STAMPS: Polka Dots & Paisley CARDSTOCK: Cool Caribbean, Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Double Sided Paper (spring mini) INK: Pretty In Pink Classic refill, Cool Caribbean ACCESSORIES: On Board Simon Lower, Cutter Kit, Pretty in Pink brads. Light pink grosgrain, white grosgrain, stampin' dimensions, sponge daubers

It was my first time actually using my On board simon lower chipboard and I think it was a sucess. My challenge is to use it before the end of this catalogue - 2 pieces done (I made the same card but said Birthday instead) 48 to go. Have a wonderful weekend!
