Hi everybody, how is Monday? Great I hope! Well this is the hardest part of hosting the CDSWC, choosing the card to feature. As you can see I decided to show a couple because, it was just to hard. They were all so great, I included links to all of the cards so that you could see them all and be inspired by them. Each one had some unique and inspiring feature! Even as I'm typing this I'm still trying to narrow it down!
Here are my finally choices; Joan for antique oven card. There was so much texture on this card, every little detail was finished off to perfection. The buttons were so pretty and the background that she put them on just worked so perfectly. Not only was it for this color challenge, she completed 4 challenges on this one card! Whew! How hard would that be!!!
I also featured Stephanie's bear card, the colors on it look so soft and the bear is so sweet and colorful with his little paper pieced ball. It was precious! It also has the beautiful blush colored buttons that are the perfect addition to accent this card!

I can't thank you enough for joining me in this week's Clear Dollar stamps Color Challenge.

I believe next weekend will be hosted by Laurie, it should be another great challenge for sure, see you there!- Shawne
