Tuesday first of a couple of posts...

Hi There first we have a card for OWH Stars n Stamps challenge for an "Any Occasion" card, this is for "Encouragement"  I would say for a female. and as usual I can not seem to get a good picture of my card, the days I DO, is sheer luck! LOL  So First a picture on the "portrait" setting. and then one on "Macro"  Portrait is a bit blurry and the macro is blurry AND poor resolution. I am simply disgusted, I think it was better when I used to scan my cards. This card I will admit, was in my "started cards folder", and from an old  SCS Saturday style challenge, which was a picture of a bathroom renovated with these colors and both strips and flowers, thus...why I mixed papers.

Today I added the sentiment, brads and ribbon...which appears much darker and much bluer than it is, it is actually more like a periwinkle color, but a shade darker, just not this dark.
This card is also for This past Thursday's "Anything Goes" challenge over at Do You Stack Up challenge blog

 Portrait above: colors more accurate (with the exception of the ribbon, which actually looks better below, but still not right) but blurry
Macro below: colors off, resolution off, but less blurry. I can tell you the Card stock is SU, and the flower paper is DCWV. The rest is unknown or forgotten

I'll be back to share my new award with 10-12 friendly bloggers, and maybe chat about some stuff that's going on, I'll go with where the keyboard takes me.
