Days 226, 228-231

Day 226 - So...
Got back into the groove this Saturday and was able to complete all the challenges for this week at 365 Cards. This one was to use the word "SO" on your card. I'm also using the digi and challenge from this week's There's Magic in The Air. Layout is loosely based on this week's Mojo (#108). Several sites had Halloween-themed challenges so I'm also submitting this one for the following challenges:

Day 228 - Same, but Different
This is for the Same, but Different challenge at 365 Card, i.e., to use the same patterned paper in different colors. Used the layout from Get Sketchy #10. I needed a sympathy card for my dad who buried a dog that he took care of for the last year. We dubbed the dog "Rufus" and he showed up in the yard one day. He had a wonderful and peaceful last year of his life.


Day 229 - Color Scheme
Day 229 was to use a kinda fall-toned color scheme. Luckily I had recently gotten this designer paper (Autumn Vine from SU!) that had close to the colors...I used a bit darker pink tone in the Really Rust and didn't emphasize the Sage Shadow (green) which is on the DSP. Layout is from Inspiration Sketch Challenge #33 and Penny's Challenge #11 (an autumn-themed card with a tree).


Day 230 - Shape Up!
Day 230 was to use a semi-circle shape or shapes as a focus on the card. Layout is based on Card Patterns #37 and will also submit this for the Halloween-themed challenges from above and one more:


Day 231 - Image This - The Sky
My inspiration from the sky was the colors (blue for how it usually is and pink for the color at sunrise) and what's in it (i.e., butterfly). Used the layout from Stamping 411 (SSC121). Also submit this one for another ABC Challenge F is for Flying.

Whew! Think that covers it all for now :) If you want/need any details on any of the cards posted in this one, please leave a comment asking for them and I'll add them in. TFL! Aloha!

Wow Kim, I'm impressed with all the details and techniques you're using on your cards. You have to click on the pictures & see close up to appreciate them even more! What mediums/ink did you use on your CP card? Love that glittery effect on the witch's ornamental broom.
