Summer Camp-Ferris Wheel

I am excited to be learning at the Summer Card Camp 2011 and this is my entry in the week 1 color challenge.

 The colors are warm purples, orange and pink with a sky blue and white. I am having technical difficulties this morning and can't figure out how to get them on my blog after I downloaded them.
Everything but the sentiment was created on the Silhouette SD. I used 3 images for this card.

Ferris Wheel C02589
Background polka dot even 2466
Frame C02808

I had fun taking all the elements of the ferris wheel apart, some are colored on the silhouette and some were cut out of different colors of card stock. Glossy Accents were added to the cars on the ferris wheel and it gives them some nice dimension but it makes them hard to photograph. Too much light makes them too shiny and too little makes the colors look dull. I did have some help with the photography..

This little guy was out warming up in the early morning sun and he was still a little slow moving.  I think he was more concerned with me stepping on him than the correct lighting for the photo.

Thanks for stopping by and if you are participating in Summer Card Camp I will see you over there :)



  1. Wonderful, Debbie - the glossy accents really make a huge difference on your card!
