My Time Made Easy

Afternoon Friends -

I was encouraged to apply for the My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette DT and I thought why not? I think it's time to break out of my comfort zone of comfortable colors. So here are my submissions to this wonderful group of designers. I have used many of the My Time Made Easy templates, but when my computer fried I had to upgrade everything - therefore I can't use the templates because Cricut doesn't want to play with SCAL. Bummer heh!!

The submission stated to make two card using Pretty Patterns sketches #66 & 67. Use any of the Pretty Palette color challenges. Here are my two cards.

Isn't this little girl too precious. I want to be her frolicking after butterflies.

 For my card I used the color palette of daffodil, white, and dark grey. The sketch was a bit challenge in determining how to do the frame. I had fun getting the paper cut and lacing it together. I think the effect makes the card pop.

I just loved this image too! The set comes with all kinds of Back to School images and I had a hard time picking which image to go with. I finally settled with this darling little girl who is ready to go back to school - unlike me. Today is my last day of vacation - it all begins tomorrow. Kids in two weeks!!  
For this card I used the color palette of daffodil, coral, pear, and black. Can you all believe I didn't make a card using pinks!! These cards were really fun to put together. Even if I don't make the team I believe I'll start playing with color challenges. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!!

Oooo, another color challenge I haven't heard of. I'll definitely have to check it out! Good luck with the DT app! Both these cards are adorable. I love the bright colors on the first one, and the frame you created is amazing.

Good luck on the DT call sweetie :)
Colour challenges are hard for me - I usually end up stuck trying to add in the 'last' colour. Practice, I guess!
I love the woven corners on the first card - such a fun way to add interest! I hope your week of training flies - my guess is that if you're headed back to work, you'd much rather have the kiddos :)
