Color Cue {3}

I'm anxiously awaiting Dawn's new Woodgrain stamp set--I'm crossing my fingers I get it in the mail today, but I just couldn't wait to play with her new Color Cue Challenge.  Again, what I love about colour challenges is that they compel me to use colours I would not likely combine on my own, so they're great inspiration!!
Here's my card:

I haven't done a lot of heat embossing in a while, and I have a whole set of Hampton Art coloured embossing powder I haven't really used.  I like how the shimmery the yellow dots turned out (although I now see a lil' mistake)

With Mother's Day being the next big holiday, I need to start cranking some of those cards out (another reason I can't wait for Dawn's new stamp set!).  My aunt suggested that I put a small display up at her spa to sell some of my cards--she's a gem!  I'm going over later today to drop my stuff off.  I'm not selling them for too much--$3--hopefully enough to support this crazy hobby!!  Who knows if anyone will even be interested in buying any?!  Any way, here's a photo of the display I made up.  Some of you may recognize some of the cards from older posts!  What do you think?

Thanks 4 your time!


  1. perfect card for dawn's challenge! love your display-wish you loads of sales:)

  2. Gorgeous card Tammy! Love the placement of that ribbon with the stitching. I'm so bad at random placement. I'm trying though. I broke way out of my usual on this challenge, so it was a doozy for me as well.

  3. What a fab display! I love it, and I hope you sell them ALL!!

  4. Oh, wow! Tammy, this card is HOT! Smokin' with embossed goodness and fantastic color play! DELIGHTED that you're the FIRST and off to such a smashing good start with Dawn's Color Cue #3! YIPEE!

  5. Very nice display!,Good luck on your sales!
