It's a pink and yellow day

Friday, July 22, 2011

Hi there, blog friends! Maybe you noticed that I was all about green and orange in my last two posts. I didn't plan it that way, it just happened. Sometimes it's a challenge for me just to stay away from green. So, when I saw that the CR84FN34 Color Challenge 34 was pink and yellow I immediately knew I wanted to play along. 
When I was choosing paper, I wound up with both soft and vibrant color possibilities. I couldn't decide which one to go with, so in the end, I just made two cards for the color challenge. For my soft version, I combined CR84FN34 with the Viva la Verve July 2011 Week 4 sketch challenge, and for the vibrant version I combined CR84FN34 with the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 126.

Here's the soft version--
Within Your Heart:

And, here's the vibrant version--
Pink Hello:

I still can't decide which I like better. What do you think???

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a happy weekend :D

I like them both! They are so different but each is pretty in it's own right! LOVE the heart and the subtle muted pinks in the first and LOVE the the bold pink background paper and the yellow border in the second! THX for playing with us at CR84FN!

Do you know, that's just what I love about challenges. Your cards are both so different, but both just beautiful. Love the verse of your "soft" version - love the typewriter on the "bolder" version. Thanks so much for playing along with CR84FN!
