Ribbons and Color

Hello! It's Friday so I have a new Dilly Beans challenge to share with you. Plus, it's the 20th (where did this month go???), so I have a new Chromatic Craze challenge as well. The Dilly Beans theme this week is ribbons. Here's what I made.

I made this bookmark for my little girl. She is trying really hard to learn to read. She's 4 1/2. And I knew she would love that crinkly pink and purple ribbon. She was so excited when I gave it to her, and she has been going through lots of books, and using her bookmark for all of them.

I colored this sweet turtle with water colors. The turtle has a similar look to the watercolor-y look for the ribbon.
Now on to Chromatic Craze. This month, the colors are white, buttercream, periwinkle and salmon. To see them, please visit the CC Blog. Here's what I made.

I made an ATC to go along with this week's Wicked Wednesday challenge, which is Crazy for Daisies. 

I've had that sweet little daisy stamp for a while, but never used it. I thought it was perfect for Chromatic Craze and Wicked Wednesday. The "Happy" is from Tiddly Inks
Please be sure to check out all of the sites I've mentioned, and play along with us! Plus, the DT's have lots of wonderful things to share with you. Thanks fr stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
