A New Color Challenge



My friend Jennifer Campbell posted this color challenge to her blog yesterday, so I though I would play along. Here is my card for this challenge:



I have to admit that I don't have any DSP with these colors in my collection. I'm not overly fond of any of them, except maybe that Raspberry Ripple, so I had to create my own background paper for this one. I used Crumbcake as the base, and the flower from Bloomin' Marvelous to brighten up the Summer Starfruit, but my favorite part of this card is the flower I created from doilies. The doilies were just a little too big so I punched out three middles and inked them up to change the color - this is such a fun way to change them up a little. Then adhered them to a 2 1/2" circle punch with an Antique Brad. I used the outside of one of the doilies to put an edge back onto the flower, using my 2-way glue to hold it in place.

The Raspberry Ripple piece was pre-cut and left over from another project.

I hope you like my card - thanks for stopping by!
