PPC-CC #14 & CPS #65

Boy this week Megan sure put up some challenging colors for me over at the Picture Perfect Creations Crafty Challenge blog. I never use these colors and I mean never. I don't think I have ever inked up my Handsome Hunter pad and I'm sorta glad it's retiring! I decided to pair up this week's challenge with Card Patterns Sketch 65. I'm not entirely happy with how the card turned out but it's way too late to make another card. 
Boy the more I look at this card the more I don't like it one bit. Bleeeech! I'll have to give it to someone I don't like.... jk!! Hope everyone has a great Monday! 
We've had a busy weekend with garage sales and cleaning. I even managed to fit in 30 minutes on the elliptical. Longest 30 minutes ever. Jamie on the other hand, had time to make some bread for us to eat!

Sandy first off looking at your bread on here this morning makes me want to come for a visit...LOL. Way to go on fitting in your working out too. Happy Victoria's Day I found this one challenging and had to break open all of my packs of paper. I love the Handsome Hunter but struggled with the Cameo Coral...LOL. Great minds think alike we used the same card patterns challenge. I love the image you chose (the water coloring)and the way you embossed the Ballet Blue. You did a great job with stamping your image behind too! Hugs and don't be so hard on yourself, it is a nice card. You could always give it too me??? *wink*
