Pretty Cherry Mambo!

Oh, I'm quite excited to show you today's project, and it's a 2-Fer! :)
Which means...you get to see 2 projects from one challenge! :)

I'll admit, when I first saw the Color Challenge at SCS, I was a little hesitant. I didn't really like it. It seemed like it would be "off"....but it wasn't, and I SO love it! :)

And that, my friends, is why you get to see 2 projects today. Cause I was havin' so much fun! I can't even decide which one to share first!!! lol

Oh wait. I forgot to tell you the colors.
Pretty in Pink
Cherry Cobbler
Melon Mambo

Card #1 - Pretty Cherry Truck 

This one is used a set I've had for-EVAH, called "Loads of Love"!  It used to be my go-to set for masculine cards, but I haven't used it in way too long. The main image is, of course, popped up on dimensionals. ;-)  I used shimmery white cs on this one, whisper white on the next.

Card #2 - Pretty Cherry Love

This card was made with the set "Love You Much", and I had fun with this one, too, but couldn't decide whether to place the main image like this, or turn the card horizontal and do something different than the norm...I'm so boring that way, lol.  Maybe I'll just make another one and do both! :)  (Main image is, of course, up on dimensionals)

Well, what do you think?  Do you have a favorite?

  1. These two are wonderful cards! When I saw "Cherry Mambo" I couldn't imagine that going together! Well they do!!!! Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  2. I LOVE the first card just because you showed how just because it looks like a masculine stamp it didn't have to be used that way! I really like what you did on both cards. Very nice! TFS

  3. Very pretty cards. I like the clean look to both of them.

  4. Great cards. The first one is my favorite. I keep forgetting to use that truck. TFS

  5. Both of these are adorable!! I love my dimensionals too!!!

  6. Great cards! I love the truck with the masked hearts! Really good job!


Go ahead...make my day! :)
