Colour Me - Sympathy

Colour Me - Sympathy

Well folks, I need to ...
Unfortunately make more cards of this type.
It it too new for me, so I will express it the way I can for now
...to create.

I love the COLOUR ME!  Challenge...
I have just found it honestly.
There are so many challenges out there, and I like to be
 loyal to friends,
and support when I can,
or fanstalk challenges, or because of the style or feel of it.
I LOVE the way challenges make me feel.
I sometimes play once or twice and can't get back again.
Some I just can't get all worked up.

I guess I need that "Zing"
That glance that tells me, WOW, I know just what to do!

And I will be honest,sometimes the large challenges,
with LOTS of entries,
 I feel like I need to patron the little guys more.
I can get to know more people that way.
You all are so great, I tell you! 

I picked this butterfly paned stamp from a clearance bin.

So glad I did, paired with the HERO ART Flourish, this is a quick
and satisfying card!
Super easy, not alot of fuss at all, 
and you could use a different sentiment or add embellishments.
 What I love about cards like this is that 
I belong to a card club, 
and this type of fast and easy card, yet it comes out 
elegant, is just PERFECT for card club.
I like them FAST... make more cards that way!!!
Yay!
Feeling a little better already

Sorry for the losses you had to deal with! The card is gorgeous and will hopefully bring a smile to someone who is grieving. LOVELY!!!

So pretty!
I feel pretty much the way you do about challenges. I wish I could find time to do more. Since I'm such a slow card maker...I usually look for the ones that you have a whole month to make a card...smile.

Your conversation about challenges - and playing in a variety of places - I couldn't agree more! I love that you 'spread your creativity' all over, and that we, in turn, can discover challenges that may resonate with us, as well. We all need to support our community, and you, dear Kimberly, are certainly the top ambassador in doing so! I want to follow your lead!! Your card here: breath-taking beautiful! The colours, the layout, the butterflies (another episode of swooning coming on!): "visual harmony" (my new phrase!) that so fits a sympathy card! Change up the colours, and oh my...what dazzling delights you'd have for other occasions. WOW to everything you've shared here!! Hugs~c

I just discovered the color challenge too! I wish I had time to make a card for all my friends that are on DT.

This is beautiful! I LOVE the color and the style. Just great!

Barb Ghig said...

Such a stunning card, Kimberly! The butterflies pair so beautifully with the flourishes and the color is fabulous!

Debbie Bonczek said...

This is a gorgeous card. I love that paneled look, and I love the background you created beneath it with the flourish stamp. Beautiful work.

I also agree with you on the challenges. I follow so many, and I certainly can't play all of them. The give me great inspiration and I just try to play along when I can.

Tara Bourgoin said...

Wow, this is absolutely stunning! The flourishes in behind the main panel are so textured and lovely. And the butterflies in the squares are divine! a touching and comforting sympathy card. I'm glad to hear you are enjoying Colour Me...! challenges, and glad you have been playing along :) Can't wait to see your next beauty!
