Card Making/August Retro Fresh Challenge BDay Hoopla

This past weekend I had to make a card for my Granddaughter's birthday on the 26th of August.  Since I was making up a birthday card, I decided to enter it into The Greeting Farm's August Retro Fresh Challenge for Birthday Hoopla.  Of course this was specially made for my Granddaughter who is all about the color pink and anything to do with princesses.....and then I added 4 balloons to symbolize her turning four years old.  Here is the creation I came up with. 

Card contents are a pinkish card stock, along with black paper and patterned paper of pink cupcakes, and shiny patterned paper pieces of various shades of pink, and three different patterned paper pieces used on castle.  The shiny paper pieces were cut and put behind the castle to make it appear like it was light rays coming off the castle like spot lighting affects. Embellishments used are pink blings, sticker balloons, and string for each balloon. Stamp is TGF Princess Anya and is colored with colored pencils.

Card Making/GVT Challenge for 08/26/2013

The Greeting Farm's Garden Variety Tuesday challenge is a color theme which are colors inspired from the citrus fruit family of cantaloupes, watermelons, and limes.  Extremely cool color scheme I could not wait to see what I could create......So here is my final creation using the color pallet of the challenge of the week. 

Materials used were colored papers of Mango and Citrus, along with a patterned paper but cannot remember from which company off hand, decorative ribbons, and flowers and TGF stamps of Wendy and Peter Pan.  Stamped images were colored with colored pencils and Wendy's skirt is a pieced pattern paper.

Card Making

Within past couple of weeks, I found some spare time to work on a TGF challenge they were running.
The Greeting Farm's Garden Variety Tuesday challenge was to use a color scheme of yellow, aqua, grey and black.  So, here is what I came up with:

I used yellow textured card stock, layer of black paper, patterned paper of grey with white flowers, pattern papers of  yellow and various shades of aqua blue used for stenciled palm tree and tikiis.  Coloring of Hula Anya was done with colored pencils.  And flowers with pearl embellishments, floral black/aqua ribbon were used to add more decorations along with only a message taken off a decorative birthday stamp I picked up from Michael's or AC Moore.

Card Making

I have been doing all sorts of arts and crafts but this is a new branch of craft work to me.  Here it is in the year 2013, and I have not yet dabbled into the scrap booking/card making worlds yet.  So, I found myself wanting to do so.....So I have recently started purchasing supplies in the past 6 months to start my new adventure into the card making world.  I know everyone has to start somewhere, and of course my first one is pretty simple.  I am sure I will look back on it someday and get a good chuckle on this first attempt of my card making creativity and skill level.  So here I go with sharing the first masterpiece of mine. Lol.
