Colours make a difference

Hello my blogging friends, so glad you took the time to check out what I did today.

I just saw this new sketch and just had to give it a try. I played around with two colours and ended up making two cards from them...... so you can see what a difference colour can make.

I made the first one using SU Daffodil Delight as I was thinking Easter card and I think it looks very cheerful and spring like..... and my friends up north sure want spring to come soon. LOL

The second one I did in SU Rose Red .....just because I have been using a soft pink too much lately and I need a change.

I think this makes a clean and simple card too.

Now take a look at both and let me know which one you like the best. I always love the input.

OK here are the cards. Hope you like them....I love this sketch and will use it again for sure.

Yellow first....just because I did this one first.

And now the Rose one.

I hope you are finding something on my little blog to inspire you ...even if it is just a small thing you see that you can use.

Have a happy carding day.

  1. Pretty in both colors! I love silhouettes!
    Thank you for joining us at Tammy's Scrapin Corner this week!

  2. This kind of post is my favorite! I absolutely love to see what a difference just a little detail might do, in this case, the color. The colors give these cards such different feels - I like the vibrant yellow of your first one, so summery and cheerful. Whereas your second card is more of the sweet and girlie type. I like them both! I'm returning your visit from MIM.

  3. Two gorgeous cards Carolyn, the colours give them a totally different look - if I had to choose it would be the yellow one for me. Carol x

  4. A lovely card, beautifully designed. Thanks for joining in at Make My Monday this week.

  6. You have been busy, Carolyn! Love your cards, and the pretty images!

  7. I love them both, but I think the pink seems to pop a bit more (at least on the screen) ... great example of how a small difference changes the look of a design.

  8. I think the yellow makes a good spring colour. They are both very delightful cards. Any one would love to find one of these cards in the mail. Dianne C

  9. I like that you did the card with different colors. And now you have two! Clever girl!

  10. Both colors are beautiful. Thanks for joining us at stamp with fun.

  12. Fabulous silhouette image .Love the papers and punched edge in both colours.Thanks for sharing on Make it Monday

  13. Both are lovely, Carolyn but the first one is my fave. Love the punched border.

  14. Hi Carolyn
    From what I can gather the reader is going to disappear from the dashboard all together on the 1st of July so you would lose all the blogs you're following.
    With bloglovin you can import all the blogs with a press of a button now before they disappear!
    Once all your blogs are there you can sort them into groups too which makes things a lot more manageable if you're following lots of different blogs.
    Hope that helps. Carol x

  15. Both cards are absolutely DARLING!!
    Thanks for joining us at PDE "Anything Goes" Challenge.
