How JoLynn Got Her Groovy {Guava} Back

OK, there's no way to sugar coat this. I have been very cranky this afternoon/evening. I was chalking it up to being too busy to create... and I was right! I feel so much better now that I have had a chance to make something. Whew!

This card started off fulfilling one SCS challenge: Ways to Use It. We were asked to use wire in some way. I used an oldie but a goodie... one of the first crafting supplies I ever bought... Paper Wire (in Hunter). This is extremely easy to manipulate into whatever you need. I used it for flourishes. In my first SCS post EVER, I used it for a flower (do you love my photog skills or what?). That was an awesome card.

This card also fulfilled SC179. This was an interesting sketch, and fairly easy to work within its parameters.
When I decided on the Sketch Challenge and the Ways to Use It Challenge, I had some color choices. I decided to use the combo in CC130, Always Artichoke (which was still laying out from the previous challenge) and Groovy Guava. This was a pretty cool combo, and was done before I had started the challenges. It was really helpful that I had printed out the master list of all the color challenges. I simply scanned for Always Artichoke and found what I like.
So, I got my Groovy {Guava} back. Woo hoo!
