A Double Challenge!

The card you see below is a very special card! Not only was it made with by me with love - which makes it special all by itself, but it also satifies the requirements for two different challenges!

First, is this week's color challenge. The colors this week are: Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Rose Red, and More Mustard. THese are not colors I would have thought to put together, but I really like them so much! I can definitely see using this color combo again. That is a great thing about taking on challenges to do things you may not do on your own.
The second challenge is the current Creative Challenge. The challenge is to flip through the current catalog and stop on a random page. Then, pick one of the projects from that page and use that for your inspiration. You can use the colors, stamps, layout, or anything about the project to inspire you. So I took this card from page 114 and changed the colors to go with this week's colors.
The two circles were cut out using the new Circle Cutter. The stamps used were Pick a Petal and Stem Sayings. I also used an Aqua painter on the flower petals and the 5 petal flower punch to make leaves for the stem of the flower.
