Still not talking about it...

Still not talking about the weather. Waiting for Spring Training and Opening Day instead! So... I have another card. Big surprise, since this is a blog centered on just that. I will keep this short, since I have to haul the Christmas decorations up to the attic closet yet today. So in yesterday's post, I posted a card for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge, and today, I'm posting for MFT's Color Challenge! The lovely and talented Susan Opel is the Creative (and Grand) Ambassador there!! How cool is that?! When you see the color palette, you'll know why I played today. Check it out:


Head over and see the DTs creations, and while you're there, grab some inspiration and play along!!

This is what I came up with:



Had fun with this one...I used Michaels cardstock for the base, and a scrap of the same for the focal panel. Scraps of blue and persimmon-y, as well as that bit of yellow. The grid dp is from Elle's Studio, from fellow BABE, Geri (thanks sweetiepie). The stamp is from MFT as is the notebook paper die. Some yellow enamel dots from Queen & Co., and the markers are from Promarker and Sharpie. I popped up that sentiment panel a bit, though it's somewhat difficult to see. I like the way this turned out, and hope you do too! Have a great weekend, and happy dances everyone!

ETA:
Sweet friend Carol, who's on the DT, saw this little card on FB, and suggested I post to Inkspirational Challenge #73, where the prompt this time is "note". So I think I shall! Thanks Carol!!

I'm not talking about the weather, but I am bundled up :) Love the fun font on that sentiment stamp!

I love this bright little masterpiece, Bev. So cute! I'm not talking about it either because my husband does enough of it for both of us. This is the second winter we have not been able to go south, although I hear it's not so warm there either.

Fabulous use of the colors!! The sentiment is so funky and cheerful - it NEEDED those bright colors! And so perfect on the grid paper.

This is like a breath of fresh air on a cold winter day! I'm looking forward to opening day too but we've got to get through football season first! Go Pats!!

Love your fresh & fun card...those colors are awesome.

So much fun putting away all the Christmas decor {not}. I did that last Wednesday and made numerous trips down stairs but I'm glad that it is done for another 11 months.

Fab card, Bev. Glad you to have you play along with us at MFT Challenge. :)

Woo hooo! Happy, happy, happy that you followed my orders...er, gentle nudge... and added this absolutely, marvelously, smile-making, day-brightening, spirit-lifting note card in the Inkspirational gallery! THANK YOU! Love x love this! As for baseball...bring it on! And I'm ready for road-bike racing to begin as well; Tour Down Under in but a week! I'll get my fix of racing as well as glimpses of stunning Australia landscapes. Win-win!
Hugs~c

Spring Training! YES! You are my kind of girl, Bev. #detroittigersfan4lyfe

Love what you did with the color palette. It could be tough, but your use of white and follow through with the theme are great!
