Scrapbooking Page... a Challenge!

It is weird because I started out as a scrapbooker. I started making cards as a way to use up my scraps from my pages. Somewhere along the way, cards became easier for me! Today though, I am posting a page! My friend Nicole swapped color challenges for the month of June and challenged each other to make a few cards and a scrapbook page. Here is mine using her challenge for me, to use Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, and Basic Black all together:

Here is a closeup of the floral embellishment:

Funny, this didn't come together very quickly! I had the idea for the layout in my mind at the beginning of the month and added a little here and there until this morning, when it finally came together! I had to alter the letter stickers a little, I used the same stamp as the blue flowers and I think they look OK.

I also made one more card for her challenge:

This one is growing on me! At first, I thought it was way too busy to look at but now I like it. I love the way the outer floral pattern came out. The idea for this came from my friend Dawnette! She did this with another stamp and I just loved how it turned out!

Anyways, as you can see, I had a lot of fun with Nicole's challenge this month! I'll post a few from my own color challenge tomorrow!! Mine was a little more difficult...

Have a great day!

You're making me look bad! I only did 1 card for each of our challenges! Plus, mine are super duper simple, and your's are totally gorgeous!!! Send a little of that creative mojo my way, will you?! ;)

Hiya! Very nice LO and card! I don't think I could handle NQN and BB I can't do black and navy! I saw your card on SCS and then saw your name and had to check out your blog. It's not to often I see someone with my name let alone a crafter. Take care!
