Color Challenge 09-02-08

OK.... I know haven't posted all week! The kids are finally going back to school and I am trying to get back into a schedule. I think my body is going into shock.

Anyway, this week's color challenge was to use Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss (or Old Olive), and Pumpkin Pie. Last night was the first chance I had to sit down and work on this. I also was feeling like I had no idea what I was going to do. So I decided to open the catalog to a random page and copy the layout of the card. I ended up opening to page 104 and decided on the middle card.

I started with a 3 1/4 x 5 1/4" piece of Chocolate Chip CS for the back of my card. Then I cut a piece of 6" x 5 1/4" piece of Kiwi Kiss that I folded in half. I stamped the branch image from Eastern Blooms in Kiwiw Kiss ink on the top. Then the "Happy" definition from Define your Life on the bottom. I stamped and cut out the flower in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White CS. I also stamped the "For You" from Fresh Cuts in Chocolate Chip ink and punched it out with the Curly Label Punch. Next, I took a scrap piece of Pumpkin Pie CS and punched it with the spiral punch. I adhered this to the back of the Kiwi Kiss card so it sticks out the side.(You will see this in the bottom pic on the inside of the card.) I wrapped the 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain around the card and adhered it to the Chocolate chip backing. Finally, I attached the Label, added one of the new Flower Brads to the center of the flower and put that on the card with Dimensionals. I also stamped a few flowers on the inside of the card.

And now a challenge for you... This card is definitely not somthing I would have ever considered designing. It is so out of the box for me. But it was fun picking a random card from the catalog and using it to create. So I challenge you to give it a try!!

LOVE IT Kel!! I think I should do that, just pick the card randomly instead of thumbing though the whole catty.
We missed u last night but at least u were stamping too. Looking forward to spending the day with you tomorrow. Safe travels in since we're supposed to have bad weather.

Hey Kelly - Love the card!!

I like the idea of randomly picking the card out of the catty too - kind of like spinning the globe and picking where you are going to live!!

Have fun tomorrow,
