Brown, Pink, & Green

 The challenge for this month's ODBD for OWH is to use the color combination of brown, pink, & green. The designer papers did most of the work for me with this card! I stamped the scroll work in dark brown espresso ink, and added the sentiment in a light pink color that matched the papers. The images are from the Morning Meadow set by SU! I used a former OWH sketch that really showcases those coordinating designer papers and creates a flat card for mailing.

I thought I'd toss this card into today's post since it was also done with brown, pink, & green colors. I used the new SNSS Cocoa Mouse get well stamp set, coloring with Copics and using pistachio pudding green for the background - embossing it with a cuttlebug ef. The border punch was done with a SU! punch; the striped panel was a scrap from my bin, and the image was colored with Copics, adding some fluorescent pink for the medicine in the bottle. I'm entering this into Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground #84.

I'm still having issues with my computer freezing and not being able to open or close programs, but hopefully I'll be able to figure it all out. At least there are moments when I can get things done before it takes a fit! Those pc gremlins are always working hard to challenge me :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

Looks like Cocoa has been hitting the Pepto! Great colors! Love the first card for the monthly challenge....sometimes simple is the best. Very pretty.

Two super cards, Carol. I love that sentiment on the first one and, of course, Cocoa is always a winner.
Good look getting rid of those pc gremlins. They can make life miserable.

Computer problems are the worst (not really but they seem to be). Great cards - love the mouse one as it is so darn cute. Hugz!

Those sort of computer issues drive me nuts as I never know if it's my lack of tech skills or the computer having a gremlin attack!
Gorgeous cards, absolutely love that mouse on the snippet card, it's so cute and so cheeky hugs Karen
