RES-Q Challenge #3

Well, we are going on RES-Q-Challenge #3! This week is JoAnn's turn to hostess and she has come up with a fabulous challenge to go with our new April theme, Daisies and Diamonds! We had to use brown as a primary color and one accessory color, the colors of gerbera daisies (red, orange, yellow or pink). And we had to incorporate diamonds...so here is what I came up with...

This one I actually made the main panel a diamond, as well as the diamond scored BG.
recipe: SU chocolate chip, real red, PTI white cardstock; Papertrey Ink Damask Designs; EK success border punch; scor-pal,; white gel pen; red grosgrain ribbon; versamark; white EP

For this one I went with the scored diamond BG again but I used Coredinations paper (the paper has a different color center) and sanded over the cored part. Cool, huh?

recipe: Coredinations cardstock, SU chocolate chip, PTI white CS; Papertrey ink Anniversary set; scor-pal; satin ribbon; dew drops; SU apricot appeal, chocolate chip, black ink

Thanks so much for joining us! 
See you next Monday!

Denise, I love them both. The red one has that red/black/white classiness to it and the apricot one is just so sweet and springy. Scoring was the perfect way to incorporate diamonds. Thanks again for doing all of this.

Awesome cards! When you said diamonds I was thinking sparkles not the shape! Great idea!!
