Some more of WCMD!

I finished all seven challenges over on SCS for World Card Making Day. The other day I showed you a couple of the cards I did. Here are two more of the ones I finished up on Sunday. This is the color combo challenge card. Lemon Lime twist was the name for the challenge. We needed to use a a lime green, a yellowish-orange, black, dark gray and vanilla. It sounded a bit weird to me at first, the lime green was really scaring me (I am not a big fan of the bright colors, green galore makes me cringe). Then I remembered a little tip, if you don't like the color, use it sparingly. That's what I did and actually REALLY like this card (plus I got to use a retired favorite, marigold morning). The Ways to Use it challenge was called, Tree-mendous and required the use of a tree stamp or anything to do with a tree. I used this beautiful tree image from Unity (Growing in Unity). I must have been on a square card kick, because most of the cards I did on Saturday were a 4 1/4 square. I paired this up with some of the Autumn Vine dsp and my rectangle nestabilites for the scallops. Rectangles you ask, those are squares. Well, if you cut out two of the same size rectangles and overlap them on each other, lining up the scallops you can create squares (probably wasn't the best explanation of that, but I tried). That was one reason I ordered the rectangles first, because I could get some more mileage out of them. The ribbon is white taffeta dyed sage shadow.
I do have two more cards to share with you from WCMD, but I'll stretch it out one more day since I haven't really stamped much since then. As always, thanks for stopping by! Hugs,
