Color Me #59 - Double Miracle Card

I have to confess that I am somehow scared of color challenges. Especially ones that use more than two or three colors. First Miracle: I have a card for a color challenge. My bloggie friend, Cornelia of Stempel Spass, you probably all know her, is a Guest Designer over at Color Me, so I thought I had to try and overcome my hesitation. Turns out the colors worked well for a retirement card that I needed. I even had a 6x6 paper pad that had the perfect colors. Yes, that's the second miracle: I used lots of DP! Look:

Stamp: unknown, unmounted lady, sentiment handwritten
Paper: My Mind's Eye (fine and dandy)

I've had this stamps for years and I don't think I have used it before. Thought it would be perfect for a retirement card! The funny thing is the friend who retired, one of the 7 Cardologists, is the last person you would find sitting at the beach and reading a magazine! She will be busy with her grandchildren, baking for everyone, and lots of other things.

Sending this to

Color Me #59

Wishing you a fun filled weekend! We will have company until Tuesday morning.



  1. You've worked miracles with this challenge, Susanne - and done so like a 'pro'! The papers, the design, the fabulous image: a combination that is sheer delight! Your retiring friend will love this, as do I. Even though she'll be busy with the grandkids, baking and whatever else, you never know...the allure of the beach, some lounging and magazine reading may call to her. It sure is having that affect on me!

  2. Ha ha ha!!!! So funny! Finde ich ja super, dass Du extra wegen mir bei colour me...! mitmachst! Dankeschoen!!!!! Das mit den Farben hast Du prima gemeistert! Die hast Du besser hingekriegt als ich (mit meinem Zitronengelb....) Du wirst sehen, bald liebst Du Farb Challenges ;)

  3. Susanne, this stamp set cracks me up! And it's perfect for a retirement card!

  4. You should use patterned paper more often if this card is anything to go by! Fab design and great use of the challenge colours. The stamped image is just brilliant :)

  5. Even if we are too busy to lounge on the beach, this card is really adorable, Susanne, and the retirement "message" is conveyed loud and clear to do what you enjoy! Good job using that NBUS!! Hugs, Darnell
