Crazy 4 Challenges C4C82 - Color Challenge

Hello Friends! Happy Saturday! Hey. . .I finally posted a card! It's been a while . . .I think the last time I posted something paper crafting was in last week's Crazy 4 Challenge post. Boy, I'm slackin' in the paper crafting area lately! I think I'm going to spend the day just paper crafting . . .I've been so engrossed in sewing that my paper crafting has taken a back seat. It's hard to find a balance.

Well, it's Crazy 4 Challenges time again and Silke came up with a great color challenge this week!! I love the combination! The color combination if you can't tell by my card (LOL!!) is green, brown, and vanilla!

Stop by Crazy 4 Challenges and check out all the fabulous cards the crazy gals created or stop by their individual blogs:

I used my Unity Stamps this time around. I have a ton of them that still needs to be inked. . .I love this tree image and the sentiment! It's true. . .it's the little things that do make me happy!!

I added a little Stickles glitter to give the trees a little bling. . .gotta have bling. . :)

I do want to talk about the Prima flowers on my card. The flowers are actually 3 layers of flowers each that I scrunched together to give the flowers a rose appearance. I have a lot of the little primas but I don't like using them. I saw a tutorial somewhere. . .I can't remember who created the tutorial. . it's something that someone posted on Facebook that showed how to create roses with your little 5 petal primas! I LOVE it! It saves me from having to buy rose shaped Primas andalso helps me to get rid of the Primas that I already have. The best way to get the flowers to hold together is using a glue gun. . .otherwise you would have to wait for the glue to dry and who has the time to wait, right? Try it out!!!

Anyway. . .that's it for today! Hope you all have a fantastic Saturday!

Maria, your card is beautiful. Love the green flower. I saw a tuturial by Connie MacFarland at paper petals and ribbon roses. I have made several of them myself since I saw her video.
