Shades of Brown

hi guys. I'm back with some cards to show you. They're basically the same, with a few slight differences (you might have to look hard to find them!) :p

Anyways, I love shades of brown. It used to be an "ugly" color, but since I started scrapping and cardmaking, I have found that brown is one of my favourite colours to work with. Not only does it make a great combo colour for a lot of colours (pinks, greens, blues, reds. etc.) but it also looks great standing alone. :)

Whatch think of these cards??? I really didn't have a plan when I started them, but they came together nicely -- and turned out a lot better than I had planned :) That's always a nice surprise :)
Here's a close up of the second card -- love this embossing folder! and of course the bling! :)

Scrapalicious USA -- A Cut Above (the cross)
Creative Belle Blog -- Clean and Simple
The Stamping Boutique -- CAS (clean and simple)
Craft Room challenge -- Bling

And before I go, I just want to give a shout out to Really Reasonable Ribbons. Every month they put on a blog hop with their newest bunch of ribbons as the prize package. I've won this prize a year or so ago, and I absolutely LOVED the ribbons I received! They were beautiful, fun and just so classy! :) So when I see that they're having another blog hop, I usually take the time to check it out. Why not??? I can always find inspiration on different ideas for ribbons on my projects. :) And this month, I was the lucky winner!!! Whooo-hooo!!! This package is gonna be so much fun to use!! :) And yes!!! there's even lots of Baker's twine in there! I've been wanting to try my hands on that stuff! :)

If you're interested in winning a similar prize package -- go over to the Really Reasonable Ribbons blog and sign up to be a follower....and hop along on the next blog hop. You just might be the next winner -- and get tons of inspiration as well! Good luck! :)
