I seriously can't believe that only two people left links to their cards for the color challenge!!!! You all still have until noon on the 13th to leave a comment and a link to your card. If you don't have a URL - just send a photo of your card to my email (www.jhaddad59@yahoo.com) so that you can be entered in the drawing for a small, acrylic stamp set.

Here is the card I created for the challenge using Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and Taken with Teal. I've been asked for details on this one, so here goes:
Old Olive Cardstock - 8 x .25" folded in half lengthwise (this fits in a regular #10 envelope)
Eggplant Envy - 3 panels - 3.75 x 2.75
Taken with Teal - 3 panels - 3.25 x 2.25
Whisper White - 3 panels - 3 x 2 and edge sponged in Taken with Teal ink.
Stamp Sets used are all retired Stampin' Up! sets: Seasonal Sprays, In Full Bloom and Heaven Scent. The floral sprays were colored with Old Olive, Orchid Opulence, Taken with Teal and Eggplant Envy markers. The senitiment is stamped in Eggplant Envy. I added dots to each panel with the Eggplant marker.The large flower was colored with Orchid Opulence, Eggplant Envy and Summer Sun Markers, cut-out and popped up with a demensional. The leaves are bits of Old Olive Cardstock that I tore and scored with the bone folder.
Lastly I added teal brads and a little bit of doodles beside and between them to finish the card.
This was a fun challenge for me - I hope you will all play along next Tuesday and link your cards here on my blog.

Time for bed - stayed out a little too long tonight at Mineral Springs Park watching the nieces and nephews paddle boat around the lagoon. Here are a couple of pics of the fun. Doesn't Lucy look thrilled? After about 5 minutes Uncle John gave up trying to pedal and Lucy took over. I think they lasted about 20 minutes of the 30 minute ride!
Have a sweet sleep and a wonderful day tomorrow!
