Color Challenge 7/6/08


Here is my card for this week's color challenge. The colors were Real Red, So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise. I really had a hard time deciding what to do.... So, I went with something I had already done. I copied the design of this Thank You card and used this week's colors. I think it was the So Saffron that was really throwing me. However, I am happy with the way it came out. I even gave it away already.

To make this card, I started with a Tempting Turquoise card. I layered it with a Real Red layer. I stamped the flowers in Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and So Saffron on Whisper White and layered that on the card. Next I put a strip of Turquoise across the middle(it is 3/4" wide). Finally, I colored the Happy birthdya circle stamp with my Real Red and Tempting Turquoise markers. I punched it out with the 1 1/4" circle punch. Next, I punched out a 1 3/8" real red circle. I added the turquoise brad and popped it up with a Dimensional. The best part about this type of card is that it will work with just about any color combo and many stamp sets. Give it a try and send me your pics!! I would love to see what you come up with!
