Ok, so I won't deny that this week's Coloring Down the Lines challenge was a real challenge!!! This week we were only given 2 colors!! Not even a choice of 2 colors!!! I don't think I do ANY crafts with only 2 colors!!! lol 

So we had to come up with something pretty using Cajun Craze & Tangerine Tango! Now at first I thought, "what the heck"!!! Those 2 colors are soooo close together!!! But I did some serious thinking!!!

So anyway, welcome to those who traveled here from Helen's blog!! So glad you "hopped" on over!!! I hope you find my design as amazing as Helen's!!! She really can "color" it up, can't she?! :)

So here's what I came up with this week:

A nice CAS (clean & simple) card! I guess I'm finding my style!! 
I used a Whisper White background mounted on Cajun Craze. I used the "negative" from a die cut, the Window Frames Collection framelits to be more specific, and sponged  (with my Sponge Daubers of course!) using 3 colors in the middle. 

I used Daffodil Delight, then Tangerine Tango, then Cajun Craze! The flower, from what's becoming one of my fave stamp sets, Oh, Hello (from Spring Mini Catalog) is stamped using the Tangerine Tango marker & Garden Green marker for the color. 

The little jewelry tags are Tangerine Tango with Cajun Craze images. The images are from the Tiny Tags stamp set & they are punched out with the Small Jewelry Tag punch!

The ribbon is the new Natural Trim Ribbon from the Spring Mini! I just LOVE this ribbon-really hoping it sticks around for awhile!!!

So not sure if I broke the rules or not by adding the Daffodil Delight, but I thought it needed a "pop"! I only used a little!!! 

So I really like this card! I haven't used that sponging technique with the negative in awhile! It was a go-to for me for awhile! I guess I'm getting back to it! It really makes a pretty card!!!

So now "hop" over to Sandy's blog & see what she did with these colors! I know you'll love it!!! Don't tattle on me with my Daffodil Delight add-on though!! Shhhh!!! lol

So until tomorrow!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!


  1. Joni, I love the blending of the colors. This is a really pretty card. I am loving this stamp set too. Very nice!!!!!

  2. Beautiful, Joni. Love all the parts, including the little "friends" tag. You know, I may be way out there, but I feel I am looking through a fancy window at a high rise outside. Yes, I know, I am a little weird. Hee hee. Love your creation!
