Guest Designer for Color my Heart!

I am so honored to say that I was asked to be a guest designer on the CTMH Color my Heart Color Dare blog. I was very excited when I was asked to do this! This week the colors are Twilight, Olive and Ruby. Great colors to work with!
So here is my card:

The background is a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of twilight cardstock. I faux stitched around the outside with a pen. The "tire" tracks are the arrow stamps from the "Sightseer" stamp set. They are stamped in black, olive and twilight, although it is hard to tell on the picture they are different colors. The sentiment is from the "New Arrival" stamp set, inked in Olive and colored with the Slate alcohol marker. These colors work so well for a boy or girl card! 
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Life's good!

It. Is. So. Hot.  So I'm going to stay inside where it's cool and craft a bit. I made a card based off the 2 challenges that I have been trying to participate in on a regular basis. Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and Color my Heart Color Dare.

The sketch looks like this:
And this is my card:

The colors from the Color Dare challenge are Surf's Up Gold, Surf's Up Teal, Crystal Blue, Sorbet and Ponderosa Pine. Since the Surf's Up Gold and Teal are specific to that paper pack and don't come in the CTMH inks, I used the 2 colors that I thought matched the closest; Goldrush and Twilight. The stitch stamp is from the CTMH  "Togetherness" stamp and the sentiment tag is from the stamp set that came in the "You and Me" kit that was a special a few years ago. 

And even though it is crazy hot here, Life's Good!!!
