Tempting Coral Rubies ( SCS Color Challenge)

Hello everyone.....hope you are having a great weekend!!! My DD Holly and I are in Denton, Texas today attending the North Texas Shoebox Swap...Whoohoo!!! We just about did ourselves in trying to get all our swap cards put together for this...but mother and daughter both waited till the last minute to start...hummmmm!!! I will post pictures next week of some of the cards and stamping friends...there will be over 35 stampers there and over 35 different cards....can't wait to get my fingers inky!!!

I made this card for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast on Tuesday...the colors were Tempting Turquoise, RubyRed, and Cameo Coral....I know, it's a strange combo but once I started working with it, I grew to love it!!!
This is also for the Queen for the Day #12 challenge to honor Queen Connie (Connie Jo9]!!! What a wonderful choice, Anne...she is such a deserving stamper!!! I chose to case her Soothing Colors card...I kept the same layout and flower theme but changed the stamps to the Rubbernecker Floral image #496-10, changed the colors, ribbon, and used buttons instead of jewels. I added the little dragonfly for da Mudder's Teapot Tuesday challenge. It seems Darla the Dragonfly wants to see lots of beautiful flowers before her time is up here on earth so I made her some beautiful daisies to fly around. I also made this for Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #6 to use buttons and bows. Whew!!
Stamps: Rubbernecker Floral
Paper: White, Tempting Turquoise, PTI's Beautiful Blooms dp
Ink: Cameo Coral, Ruby Red, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive Markers
Accessories: Martha Stewart Scalloped Border Punch, Ribbon, Buttons, Thread, Red Candy Dot, Dragonfly

Thanks for dropping by...have a great weekend!!!
