Well - I think that was successful - just need to keep Keesh's intructions in a safe place until I've done this often enough to remember how - thanks for all the helpful info, Keesh! Now the recipe for the card was basically all stampin' up - Stamp set - Embrace life; Cardstock - very vanilla; Ink - Old Olive and Kiwi kiss (don't have the required greens yet) and rose red; the ribbons are from the rustic retreat and beachfront selections; eyelet punch (isn't it gorgeous), dimensionals, embossing ink and clear powder. I also used the wax paper resist technique, as instructed on the splitcoaststamper website.
And now for a little self indulgance and some photos of the most important people in my life - and I will be in strife with my family for this - my beautiful grandsons, Sawyer (age 3 yrs) and Ethan (age 14 mths.)

Keesh's colour challenge 10

first attempt at Keesh's challenge

This is it!! - I am hoping to upload a photo of a card I made for Keesh's challenge - and then follow her brilliant instructions to send it to the correct site. As I've previously indicated, I am not very computer savvy, so will need good luck, as I don't find it easy to understand the lingo - still here goes!
