Treat Page for ScrapFriends Color Challenge

The random thing I like about color challenges is that you never know if you have the right stuff until you start digging. 

And I found I didn't have a lot of paper in these colors so resorted to cardstock with the right shades...and made them into an interesting shape.

LOOK at these colors!!!  There is still quite a bit of time to play along with this challenge over at ScrapFriends, so have at it!!! 

Of course the photo reminded me of when I treated myself to these lovely raspberry colored roses around Mother's Day. THE MAN is not big on being ROMANTIC, so if I want flowers....I'm on my own!!!

And the really neat part to me on this page is the texture I added with the magic stamp foam block that Lizzy Hill sent me from ScrapFriends. 

Let me show you a close up of the texture I stamped. It was a piece of plastic table cloth that she sent me and I just heated the block up with my embossing gun. Took two seconds. 

Here is another photo of my title. I didn't have all the right letters left over still from this set, so I opted to trace them with that mustard yellow, cover with glue and glitter. 

And, one more photo of the little rose embellishment I made ages ago with crackle glue. Was so happy to use that up on this page with the some embroidery floss.  

And one last photo of my roses. I really do love to find a patch of light and take random photos. 

AND!!! Is it HUMP DAY? Did I beat Helen to it? HAPPY HUMP DAY!!! WHoohooo!!


  1. Oh wow you are so inventive!! the stamping looks amazing.. so much texture. and the roses are beautiful.. and my man isnt too big on flowers either, but then he knows I would much rather have prima roses than real ones!!haha!! gorgeous take on the challenge!!

  2. That pattern is amazing...looks fab! I was thinking 'grass', she'll do grass...just goes to show. I mean lawn grass, y'know?!!!! And those alphas are my fave bit...they look sensational. I have to do the same as you & Lizzy C. Buy my own flowers!!! And I LOVE that quote...& here's my fave bit....taa muchly for playing with us at Scrap Friends:):):):)
