Playing in Paradise #84 - Colour Inspiration! - Sept 14

Happy Friday! Welcome back for another challenge from Playing in Paradise! This week our hostess is Merlie, and she'd like us to create something inspired by this colour story:

I made two cards for this challenge - once I got started I really loved this combination.
Supplies: standard circle Nesties; lacy circle Nesties;
(crocheted by me);
stamps from Annabelle Stamps;
Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage, and Antique Linen distress ink;
Palette Noir ink;
Pearl Shimmer Spray from Tattered Angels


Supplies: papers & tags from Kaisercraft "Madam Boutique;"
stick pins from little yellow bicycle;
lace from Hero Arts;
sentiment stamp from Annabelle Stamps;
Palette Noir ink;
peacock feather & button from stash

I took the picture before the glue dried...ignore that! This is for the close-up
of the cool vintage button, loops of lace, and pins!
 Our linky over at Scrapbooker's Paradise will be open until next Thursday, September 20th, and as always there's a great prize to win. We're always looking for new players - and let me tell you, there are GREAT odds of winning...but you have to play to win :)

Don't forget to check out what the other ladies have cooked up this week:
I'll be home before our next challenge - I can't wait to play along in "real" time :)

Love the softness your crochet edge gives this card. Terrific on the peacock feather too.
Keep smiling and creating.

Girl, you must LIVE in your craft room. I've never seen anyone create so much, so fast! :) These cards are gorgeous. Love the circle stamp on the first one that is stamped off the edge of the cs and all that sparkle make me HAPPY! The peacock card is spectacular! That feather is awesome, as is the pretty button. And, if you hadn't mentioned the glue, I'd never have noticed! Have a great weekend!

Fabulous card Jessi. I really like the first one how you have it mounted on one of your crocheted mats and then you stamped that inner circle that replicates the crocheted mat. Clever girl.
