“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

Heart 2 Heart Color Challenge

This week over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog they've got a color challenge!  I love a good color challenge - and this one is particularly festive.  My father is now officially retired but that doesn't mean that he didn't need me to make him a few more thank you cards before his last day!  This is another thank you card made for my father so I decided to incorporate the challenge colors and make it duel purpose!   The colors are Barn Red, Bamboo and any shade of blue.  I used 2 shades of blue for this card, twilight and outdoor denim.
Here is my card:
I used paper from the Emporium paper pack for the twilight flower background and bamboo, outdoor denim, barn red and colonial white card stock.  I added a bamboo organdy ribbon bow and some barn red edge anchors to finish it off!  Thanks for looking and stop by the Heart 2 Heart challenges blog to see more artwork and enter your own creation!


  1. I love how you've overlapped the sentiments! Great card! Thanks for joining us at H2H:)

  2. Your card is beautiful! Thanks so much for playing along with the H2H color challenge!

  3. Twilight is not my favorite color, but you've really rocked it here. Love the overlapping sentiments, and the cute touch of the brads and circles. Nice job!
