Groovy Artichokes

This was for yesterday's Color Challenge on SCS, Groovy Artichokes, to use Groovy Guava and Always Artichoke. I really like this color combo! I added some Sahara Sand in there for contrast. The layout came from Julee at Poetic Artistry and her Who's Got Mojo Monday. I got out my Sweet Shapes set because I hadn't used it in a while. When I first got it, a couple of years ago at a Regional Seminar, I used it ALL THE TIME. Then, once newer sets came out, Sweet Shapes got put on the shelf. I forgot how much I love this set!

Speaking of Regional Seminars, I am leaving for the Louisville, KY Regional Seminar on Friday. I'll be going to the Saturday session. I wasn't able to make a regional last year, so I'm excited to be able to go this year. I'm kind of stressing because I haven't even thought of, or made, any swaps! Yikes! I'm going to try to do that today! :) Well, thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Sweet Shapes; Paper- Groovy Guava, Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand, Whisper White; Ink- Groovy Guava, Always Artichoke; Accessories- dark green grosgrain, paper piercer, Always Artichoke marker, Making Memories brads.

Gorgeous card!! I love the color combo and the layout. I did not buy this set and now I wish I had.
It is ALWAYS amazing to me what a creative person can do with a set that will make you have to have it!
TFS.

I've been behind on my blog reading and have not had time to leave comments; however, I've seen you posts and everything you do is so delightful and wonderful. A true feast for the eyes and heart!!

GORGEOUS card Charmaine!! Love those colors. I've been doing too much green and orange lately, so I think I'll skip this color challenge, Lol. But it IS just beautiful...especially what YOU did with them here. Love the butterflies.

Charmaine! I just LOVE this. I'm reposting my Groovy Artichokes card today. I couldn't help but fool with it, because I wasn't groovin' (pardon the pun) my first version. I'm so envious of everyone attending regionals. I went last year and loved it, and schedule wise, it doesn't work for me this year. I'm dying for the spring schedule to come out, so I can see if there's any chance of attending another one.... Can't wait to see your swaps!
