GCSP08, Summer of Color and Pink Saturday!

Gingersnap Creations Blue Moon is to use 3 Words, 3 Papers and 3 Buttons. Kristin's the Summer of Color challenge is to use RED!
I caught myself going for the fourth paper, when I had die cut some lovely corners. I have to say this was really a challenge for me and not sure what I think about it!  Tried this canvas with black metal photo corners and lace.  Let me know which way looks better? 


This is my share for "Pink Saturday." I actually was the lucky winner of this most lovely "Pink Fleur de Lis and Roses" bowl from Cindy Adkins. If you love vintage, shabby chic, French and pretty much anything gorgeous, you owe it yourself to visit Cindy's Whimsical Musings. This lady is as sweet as she is talented. Stop by and you will be so happy you did! Thank you again, Cindy.
This is a busy weekend for me.  My sister is driving down from AZ and we are going to a family reunion!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Thank you for taking the time to visit me!

Congrats on the beautiful bowl, Cindy's taste is exquisite and she is such a sweet and generous gal.
I love card #1, I think the bold black makes it pop a little better, but they both are gorgeous!

Hi Terry
I love both of your creations but to choose - then it has to be the first one where the black corners seem to balance the composition out.
Wonderful bowl, congrats on your fabulous win you so deserve it.
Have a lovely get together with your family.

Happy Pink Saturday Terry Sweetie...
First congratulations on the wonderful win. Isn't Cindy the BEST? She is SO giving of herself. I think she had us all drooling over this one. Congrats sweetie.

Love you creations as well. Butterflies are my favorite. It is so pretty, looks as though it is ready to take flight and flutter away. I loved the one with the black corners. Sure made everything pop. Just gorgeous.

Thank you for sharing with me this morning. I so enjoyed my visit here sweet friend. I am your newest follower, and I can't wait to see what you share next. Hope you will pop over and say hello. I would love to have you follow as well.

Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

Congratulations on winning that bowl! It is great when you are given a present but it must amazing to receive something like this.

As for the canvas. Again, I love butterflies and re your question I prefer the second one, but both ways is beautiful.

I like both versions - not usually black and red for me but maybe that one I like slightly better - great piece!

These are both so nice, Terry. I love the torn paper poking through! My fave is the second one with the white lace.
