Colour Q Challenge #117, Dilly Beans, and Lucy Abrams

I finally had a little time to sit down and do a little craft making.  I love the black and white + a colour challenges so the CQC #117 appealed to me.  And, check it out, Dilly Beans is running a red and black challenge ... which will work for my card as well!   Lucy Abrams is running with her sketch challenges this week (like she did last year) so I wanted to play along with one of those too.



I decided the strips could be home-made washi tape.  Pulled out some new Papertrey Ink products (Background Basics: Gingham, butterfly die, and Pure Poppy red ink) and got busy. Here is my card:

I've been browsing on Christine Middlecamp's blog again ... hence the many layers on the big red butterfly ... reminds me of this one I saw on her blog...


That was fun.  Think I'll drop over to these sites to see what other crafters created ....

I've just caught up on two weeks of your blog, Donelda! Sorry I've been missing all your amazing creativity. This may be one of my favourites, though -- lots going on, but still so clean and graphic! Way to go on the homemade washi tape.
A belated Happy New Year! Looking forward to more challenges with you in 2012. :)
