Jewelry Color Inspiration #35 & 50K Blog Candy

Anyone who knows me also knows that have an obsession for stamping and for JEWELRY! I enjoy participating in other stamping challenges and want to share the fun by offering my own weekly Jewelry Color Inspiration challenge. The challenge will be posted each Sunday and will include a jewelry photo along with the link to the website where I found it.

If you want to play along, simply make a paper project (card, scrapbook page, or 3D item) that includes the colors indicated with the jewelry piece. (If you don't have the exact colors, just use ones that are similar:) Then, submit your creation to me by Saturday, May 9th at 11:59 P.M. using the Mr. Linky box at the end of this posting. (NOTE: I'm not sure why my Mr. Linky code isn't working, but I am looking into it. In the mean time, just leave comments with your link included...thanks!) You may also wish to post your photo at using the keyword JCI.

Those of you who participate in the challenge will receive recognition the following what are you waiting for...join the fun! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

This vintage fabric wrist corsage cuff bracelet called Pocket Full of Posies
includes beautiful handmade fabric flowers with copper bead accents, antique styled skeleton key charm, and a big vintage button closure. Go check out this designer, Marianna, and her fabulous jewelry designs at Star Girl Jewelry.

My Big Shot and sizzlet dies and embosslits were a must with this card. I used Cameo Coral with the Simple Flower embosslit and Kiwi Kiss for the Little Leaves & Scribble Swirls sizzlet dies. I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch 16 for the layout of this card. Go check out Karen's blog, the sweetest thing, to see her darling designs!

Stamps: Sweet Little Sentiments
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla, Ballet Blue & Cameo Coral CS
Ink: Ballet Blue
Other: Big Shot, Simple Flower embosslit, Little Leaves & Scribble Swirls sizzlet dies, Rich Regals buttons


The winner, drawn randomly, will receive my Jewelry Color Inspiration #34 card, Organic Grace stamp set, and Patterns Pack II.

I also love the challenges! Ever since I found your blog through Julie, I always try to make something based on your color challenge (even if it's way later than when you post it!). No Mr. Linky this week? Here's my entry. I wouldn't mind some blog candy! :)

What fun colors! I screwed up and used white instead of vanilla. Oops! I mentioned your blog candy on my blog too -- so hopefully you'll get some people clicking over!
