It's A Color Challenge!

Happy Friday Stampers!

We've got another fun challenge for you over on STAMP SOMETHING. This week our design team member and very talented stamper, Becky, has a great color challenge for us. The rules are to make a card using the colors blue, pink, and green. You can use any shades or multiple shades, but you must stick with those colors. There's some great blog candy up for grabs too. Betsy from Innovative Stamp Creations has donated a set of stamps from her collection. Head on over and take a look, we hope you'll join in the color fun too! :)

This is the card I made for the challenge. At first, I thought this was going to be a tough one, but then I remembered my new In Colors and went with those.

My blue is Baja Breeze, the pink is Pink Pirouette, and the green is Kiwi Kiss. I also used some white for a neutral. The stamps are from Embrace Life and All Holidays, both Stampin' Up! sets. It's been a while since I've made a complete card with only Stampin' Up! stamps. I NEED that new catalog to get some new stuff! :)

Thanks for taking a look! I hope you'll visit STAMP SOMETHING and check out the design team samples and stamp something yourself today.



Supplies:
Stamps: Embrace Life, All Holidays
Paper: SU! In Colors Cardstock
Ink: Baja, Pirouette, Kiwi
Accessories: brads, crystal effects, glitter, sponges

Hi, Denise! Thanks so much for coming to visit my blog, and leaving such nice comments. :D
I LOVE the EMBRACE LIFE set, but don't own it yet. I've been waffling, because there's SO MUCH I want! :D I think I'm going to have to break down and get it, though.... Yours is a BEAUTIFUL card! Thanks for the challenge - that's not a color combo I work with often. :)

I love the composition of this card and the way the flowers really stand out. The glitter in the flower's centre adds that extra special wow factor!
