Busy Tuesdays!

Tuesdays are always such busy days.. there are three challenges that I love to do... one you will see below... I actually hosted it.. .that was fun, but I can't get all the links etc to work correctly... been spending too much time on that all day... yuckies... I just hope that everyone uses their head and can find it...

Here is a card that I did for Betty's Color Combination Challenge.. and today she gave us Ruby RED.... Cameo Coral.. and turquoise... of course we can use all the neutrals that we want... so I used black and white papers by K and Company in the back ground.. how perfect... they were on my work table... and I glued them down.. .then I started to build up the card... a little black decorated paper... I used the Blue Hill paper punch.. and found that a much lighter weight card stock works perfect with them... and then a 5 x 5 inch Martha frame.. and then more K and Company papers... I love their papers s0 much.. I guess that is why I have over a couple feet of their papers... more... but we will not talk about that right now... (ahemmmmm !!!! Just clearing my throat a little bit... ) LOL.. then I stamped this pretty rose stamp by ??? Someone ... but since I removed all my wood... I can not tell you who did which stamp.. I stamped it 4 times... and painted it ... each layer according to the layer... and then cut out each layer and put it in place... It is painted with Twinkling H20's.... which have mica in them.. I love the sheen to them.. put a red bow... and some large black pearls.. and called it DONE!!!!

I also created this card using the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge... and also put this in the Tea Pot Tuesday challenge... so this card has been in three galleries today...
Hope you have enjoyed seeing it too..

Have a wonderful day... and check back tomorrow for some more pretties ... actually they will also be on the Cuttlebug challenge tomorrow too.. Check back here for details... or also at Fun for all... and prizes awarded every week..

Love, Light and Peace..Bonnie
