I've been getting ready for Thanksgiving this week, but wanted to do a quick post for two challenges. Great colors over at ColorQ and a really fun sketch at Retro Sketches.

     and   

I probably won't be able to do much more until at least Saturday... Going to one Thanksgiving dinner, and making one the next day.  And absolutely NOT going to any black Friday sales. This is what I came up with:


The darkest tree is really close to Concord Grape, though it almost looks black in the photo. The yellow is actually a scrap of More Mustard from SU, but the rest are just random scraps. White Bazzill for card base. An old pair of stickers, package long gone. I die cut the trees using my Cricut.

Sounds like you have a very busy week...but your card is just amazing...I love your trio of trees, they remind of grinch trees, so fun and whimsicle.

Even the star has the whimsical Dr. Seuss look to it! These colors totally carry the card. Love how you placed the images in the bottom right hand corner and then balanced the card with the star & sentiment. Happy Thanksgiving wishes to you & your family :)

Oh, this is soooo cool! What a great way to use these colors! Very creative - I love it! Thanks for sharing this with us at the ColourQ this week!

Thanks Ardyth. These trees weren't exactly what I was picturing in my head when I created this card, but I do like the way it turned out. Hope you're having a great time here in Wisconsin, and that you made it to MPP & Polka Dots!

Thanks Caroline, you always say the nicest things. I didn't like the color combo at first, but it really grew on me, and I'd use it again! Funny how that works!

Happy Dance said...

Thanks Kara. It was at first a real challenge to work with those colors, then just plain fun! I enjoyed this challenge quite a bit. Bev

Happy Dance said...

Kim, hope you had a great Thanksgiving. And until you reminded me of them, I never even thought of grinch trees! But you are so right! Thanks for that very fun memory, and your sweet remarks. Bev

Hey Geri, thanks! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Sorry about not replying sooner, cooking/guests/cleaning up, and then a whopper migraine yesterday following my last post prevented me from getting to what I really wanted to do. I had hoped it would be done early enough to get back to replies and crafting, but no...I gave up after 8 hours, and went to bed. Better today tho. I do like this card too. It wasn't what I had pictured in my head, but it turned out better!

Happy Dance said...

I really enjoyed this color combination, Sylvia. I hope to play again sometime soon! Bev

Happy Dance said...

Thanks, Tracey. The trees were almost accidental, but I think they turned out well! Great colors this week at colourQ! Bev

Happy Dance said...

Thanks Marlena. I'm so glad you liked the trees! Fun and fast card to make, too! : ) Bev
