Black and Blue

One of the challenges I came up with for the Prettie Pajama Party earlier this week was to make a card using your high school colors. I got a lot of groans over that one, but everyone's card turned out GREAT! I don't know what they were groaning about! LOL My high school colors were light blue and black. Not too bad. I used only the "go" part of the sentiment and I added a little "SV" on Sophia's lunch box for Seneca Valley. When I was talking to Christie about the challenge and she said that my colors weren't bad like hers, I said "no, they only look like a bruise!" I was just joking, but it wasn't even a day later and Savannah fell and banged up her face and knees pretty badly, so I had to make this card for her. She loved it too! :)Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Off to School Sophia, Cuddle Me (Paper Pretties); Paper- Basic Black (SU), blue (DCWV); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Accessories- circle punch, paper piercer, Copic markers, Black organdy ribbon (Darice), blue grosgrain.

Both of these are adorable!! My school colors were red, gold, and white. Not bad I guess...I wish I would've had my Pretties stamps so I could've played. Both of your cards are gorgeous!!!

Love both your cards Charmaine!! They're both darling! I think the school color challenge is clever!! I never would've thought of it.

Those bruises are clever too. I'm sure they elicited quite the giggle, which in turn takes all the pain away of course!!

Adorable, adorable cards!
