special moments

This is my 2nd card for today. I made this one for 2 challenges:

1.  The Wednesday sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers provided the layout for my card.

I liked working with the layout. I guess I always say that when someone else does the designing (lol).

2.  The curtain call color challenge this week was to use rose red, regal rose, apricot appeal, summer sun and whisper white. I wasn't sure, at first, how to get all the colors Stacey wanted involved on my card. So I went with my card base and picked my designer paper and then worked from there. So thanks for stretching me once again, Stacey.

My card base is rose red and the designer paper. The next layer is apricot appeal and I used an embossing folder for texture. I stamped my hero arts image on whisper white and used prismacolor pencils & gamsol to color it. I colored in regal rose, rose red and summer sun. I finished my card with a rose red flower and added a summer sun corduroy button in the center.

I am on a roll today so I am going to make a card for the Thursday challenge on splitcoaststampers. All the creating is keeping my mind off the furniture issue I mentioned in my first post (lol)!!
