Coriander

It’s the start of another challenge Little Miss Muffet Challenges and this time we’re digging into the warm colors! The theme this fortnight is “Reds, Oranges and Yellows” and we want to see your creation with all those colors.


I went with a summer theme, of course, and used Coriander on my project. I tried to use 100% warm colors but a just a tidbit of green found it’s way into my coloring. But somehow that splash of color works perfectly. ;D


As a side story, I had a dream, possibly a nightmare, that I went to a HOA meeting just out of curiosity but was somehow nominated to be on a board and before I walked out they had put me in as the president. Yikes… that’s a lot to take in but hopefully this card will wake me back up into a nice summer day in the backyard! LOL

Did you know? Garbage Pail Kids is a series of trading cards originally released in 1985 and designed to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls which were immensely popular at the time. Each sticker card featured a Garbage Pail Kid character, with some comical abnormality and/or suffering some terrible fate, and a humorous, word play-rich character name, such as Glandular Angela. During the height of the card series popularity, Garbage Pail Kids were banned in many schools worldwide.

Update: I was a random winner at Bearly Mine for this challenge!
