Here is my card for Beates challenge. I used her color inspiration challange BIC24 and her weekend sketch WSC59 in one card, though I did change the sketch a little bit, but I think it still fits. I used only Stampin Up supplies, which were Fresh Cuts and Riot of petals set, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla card stock, and then Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip Ink. I also used the small tag punch and then hand cut the kiwi peice under it. I think it turned out nice. Very simple and fast! Though, It took me a while to actually put it together, but it didn't have to :) I was just being picky about the layout! I couldn't decide if I wanted to use this strip of chocolate chip paper with the vine style stamp on it, or if I should use the beautiful double stitched 1" chocolate chip ribbon. I opted to stick with the card stock because I had already gone to all the bother of stamping it. I do like the look though. Anyway, there's my card :)

I decided to make another card with the same colors and basic layout as the one for my challenge. This time I used a background stamp in Tangerine Tango ink and TT cardstock. I love this background stamp, so I think I like this card a little bit better. Oh yea and we can't forget about the darling Riding hood red button from the "Button Bouquet" pack!

Each month I give my ladies in my club a challenge. This month I told them to find inspiration in a magazine or something and copy the colors (the best you can) so here's mine. I copied the cover of this month's Martha Stewart Magazine. I loved the colors so I had to copy. In my card I used So Saffron for the card base, Hawaii Papaya (which is basically Tangerine Tango with pattern) Sage Shadow, Very Vanilla, Tangerine Tango CS with my flowers (from the Pocket Silhoettes set - which is on special this month) stamped in Riding hood Red and whisper white craft "chalkboarded" with yellow chalk.
I love the way the card turned out, though I may try it with just a solid color of Tangerine Tango instead of the pattern. Sorry I couldn't get a great picture of the cover on here. But at least you get the general idea. Oh yea, and the lighting on my card is not so great. It's a lot better in real life :)
