SOS 18 - no coloring!

This week's challenge is "no coloring", and at first I thought "eeek! but I like coloring! " and so was stumped. Then, my SimonSaysStamp order came in, with the awesome Graphic45 Magic of Oz pads I ordered (to make my sis' xmas gifts with), and well, it all came together.

This is the card that will be my "official" entry for the challenge. Love teh Scarecrow, and found some raffia to use instead of ribbon, as I thought it was more fitting... I pulled the More Mustard color from his hat, voilĂ ! I actually used the back of an embossed piece of kraft to mount Scarecrow on - figured it fit better than the front... It's a simple card, but there's absolutely no coloring, as per challenge guidelines.

These are two of the other cards I've made for my sister's gift (which will be a set of cards - 8? 10? 12? not sure yet, plus an 8x8 pad of Magic of Oz paper... she's that much of a fan). The Wicked card qualifies for the challenge as well, but it's pretty plain, so I"m not entering it. I did do a bit of coloring with my red Spica pen on the ruby slippers,but you can't have ruby slippers that don't sparkle! that would just be wrong! A little bit of seam binding ribbon & another card done!
