Woodgrain & Sunflowers // Sun & Surf & Sand


3 challenges inspired today's 1st card...

Inspired By Challenge // #IB257 ...A photo inspired challenge!!  I gathered my inspiration from the color of the cabinet and the pillows.  This challenge also give us an option sketch to follow and I decided to use that as well.

Farm Quest Challenge // #FQCB37 ...A theme challenge!!  SUNFLOWERS!!  This challenge is about "all thing rural" and for this current challenge, sunflowers!!  

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc441 ...A color challenge!!  The color combo for this current challenge is Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, and Early Espresso.  A perfect color combo for a panel of sunflowers.

Today's 2nd card was inspired by 3 challenges...

Just Us Girls // #JUG700 ...A color challenge!!  Orange, light blue, and tan are the color called for in this challenge!!  I used Stampin Up's Calypso Coral for my orange, Pool Party for my light blue, and Crumb Cake for my tan.  This color combo may have others thinking of Halloween but I thought of a sunrise at the beach.

Simply Clean & Simple // OCT2023 ...An "anything goes" CAS challenge!!  We could use an optional Autumn theme and while this card isn't really an Autumn card it does use Autumn colors.

INKspirational Challenges // #IC300 ...A designer's choice challenge!!  Carol was the designer choosing for this challenge and she chose to have us make a card along with a matching envelope!!  I could enter all of my card into this challenge because that is one thing that I always do for all my cards...make a matching envelope!!

  1. DJ: your card is AWESOME! Farm-tastic! I love that your sunflowers have that harvest gold color to match the cabinet shown in Laurel's photo inspo. Great ideas to bundle together! Thanks for supporting FQCB! Remember that you can link this at FarmQuest General Store, too, which is anything farm or country goes theme topics. FQCB themed projects are allowed to 'double-dip' with FQGS'. --Becca

  2. Love your beachy inspired card, DJ! Thanks for being so creative with our colors at Just Us Girls.

  4. Deb... absolutely love how you used the colors... a sunrise is fabulous! Thanks so much for joining and sharing at Just Us Girls this week!

  5. Using a thin strip matching the panel on the envelope is a really clever idea, so simple and so decorative. Thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational.
