AEIHeartUChallenge

I've loved playing along with a few new-to-me challenges recently.  Avery Elle has darling sets, and a few of them just jumped into my basket at Impress in Seattle.  I've taken the Get Well set into play again - I had so much fun with it last month with the 12 Kits girls!

Here is how I've used it for the AEIHeartU Non-White Card-base challenge.  I love SSS Smoke and Fog cardstocks, so it really wasn't a big challenge to use them here:

Inside sentiment:
"Life without you is pretty colorless!"
 
A bit of before-and-after coloring, and I'm happy!  Hope it makes A.E. happy, too!
 
Challenge 28
 
Thanks for dropping by!  OH a bit of business if you don't mind ... many of you darlings are leaving me comments and I'm forever grateful and thrilled about that.  I'd love to say thank you ... please don't be a "no-reply" commenter ... it's an easy fix!  Our wonderful amy T. has shared this link http://anyonecandecorate.blogspot.com/2012/09/are-you-no-reply-blogger-how-to-fix.html for very simple instructions on how to correct the issue on blogger.  [believe me - I had to do it, too!]  Thanks so much!

WOW! This is such a gorgeous card, Michele! I love how you inked the fog panel and colored the white one behind it...so clever! Such a sweet little bloom on the end of your sentiment, too! Looks like a winner to me :)

I am delighted to see this card - what a beautiful design and super great coloring!! The touches of gray add to its' chic-ness and wonderful-ness!!! I tried to fix the no reply thing but blogger does not come up on my Chromebook like that - I have looked around and just do not see the options to fix that!! I might have to try it on a PC!!! Thank you!!

How cool is this card? I LOVE how you combined the gray and white and then colored some and left some not colored. So novel!!! You just AMAZE me with your creativity. When I get sick, you can send this to me!! :)

Once again I am blown away. How do these things pop into your head? I've been wanting to do something like this so I'm pinning it to keep looking and thinking and maybe something will sink in.

Oh, Michele, this is simply lovely! The contrast between the white embossed grey and those bright blooms is fabulous ... perfect with the sentiment you added inside! Hugs, Anita :)

I love grey cardstock too, just wish I could get my hands on some more easily. Hopefully we are going to Nelson (a city about 2hrs away)in a few weeks, so will get some more. Love the design of half-coloured, its adds so much interest and is so clever. Really like the dies that leave the little dot details too, wish all of mine did that!!

I do love that design style, the mono chromatic and then the cut of full color. Beautiful card Michele.
