Color combo challenge 166

Hi all, this week was a very cool color combo. This is an easel card. I love to make them. Thought the bird house was perfect for this color combo. I just added the roof to the top of a 3x3 easel card. The roof & the bird are close to my heart stamps.The leaves and branches and flourish are sizzix dies. Spellbinders were used for the bird house hole and frame also the fancy tags for the sentiment to hold the card open And of course some stickles.

Color Combo challenge # 164

Today is the first challenge I did with Designer's Challenge. It was really fun and also very challeging to follow all the guidelines. Makes you really think about the page. I used my focal point of my sweet granddaugher Bella Rose. The colors were the easy part for me since I love these colors and do well with flowers and nature. Of course I used glitter and stickles, two of my favorite things. Used close to my heart stamp sets for the words and the border on the white back. The circles and the flowers are raised with 3-M tape. Here are some close ups
