I just can't get enough...

of these cool Butterflies in the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.. I had to make another card using them! This card is for Twilight Tuesday's Color Challenge #2 : Thoughts of Bella.. I had a lot of fun last week and couldn't wait to play again!!

Hello! Happy Tuesday! Alison here with our Second Twilight Tuesday Color Challenge! This week, my colors were inspired by Bella. I chose Garnet because originally, that was her favorite gemstone (before she went & changed it to Topaz for Edward’s eyes!). Next, I picked Phoenix Sky Blue because Bella frequently mentions how she misses the colors of her hometown. Lastly, I decided that we need to throw a neutral into the mix, so I picked Forks’ Sky. It’s a grayish green. Don’t get too thrown by the shade I chose… if you just use a regular gray, that’s fine! But if you wanna try to really wow us… go for this a little more interesting, if not a wee bit dreary color! Can’t wait to see your creations!!!

I was bummed I didn't still have a piece of SU's Soft Sky laying around that would of been the perfect blue.. But that retired what 2 years ago? I really liked that color too... So I had a piece of patterned paper (Non SU) laying on my desk and it looked pretty good so I went with it..

For the Garnet I used some Riding Hood Red... Garnet is my Birthstone being a January baby!! And for the Forks' Sky I used Sahara Sand.. This color is perfect because it takes on a different look depending on what other colors you use it with..and it looks like the sky I remember in WA 10 months out of the year..lol


I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout.. Stamp Sets are the Sanded Background & Heard from the heart.... I hope everyone is having a good week so far, mines not starting out so good.. I got put on crutches today for a possible bone fracture in my foot, it's going to be a bit challenging around here taking care of my kids with the husband gone... But I will find a way like I always do.. Resting my foot will give me lots of time to stamp so that's a bonus Right?
