Challenge anyone?

I decided that I needed to be challenged so…. I entered a colour challenge!  These are the colours that had to be used in making a card.  Let me say, these are not colours that I would group together.  (Well maybe two or three together but not 5! Plus I added another colour – Confetti White!)  In the end I made two cards.  Mmm, the colour combo does grow on you 🙂

The first card I made, I used a retired stamp set and thought I had better do another one using a current set.  Same colours but two cards that a poles apart.


Odd, but it isn’t my kind of Style but I am sure that my mother would have loved it.  Can you see what I did with the punch?  Let me show you…

Punched through the card front and added the sentiment to the inside!  Different, eh?

Used a few dimentionals to give height to the sentiment.  Added the yellow card to conceal the ribbon edges.  Also added another yellow strip and flowers.  There is still room to write a message.

CARD: See above for colour combo PLUS Confetti White
INK:  Peach Parfait, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Shimmer Paint – Champagne Mist
EMBOSSING FOLDER: Framed Tulips, Polka Dots
EMBOSSITS:  Birds & Blooms, Little Leaves,
PUNCHES:  Scallop Oval, Oval large, Decorative Label, 1/2″ circle,  1/4″ circle, Scallop Trim Border.
RIBBON:  Daffodil Delight

EXTRAS:  Big Shot, sponges (for shading), Dimentionals, Tombow, Brayer (to edge the tulips), Brad – Square Fire.

Phew….. Now for CARD #2

The Ladies in my Tuesday class will be making a card similar to this one.  The layout and the technique.  Oops, I didn’t take a picture of the inside… it has the sentiment inside the card.

So have the colours grown on you?  Maybe I will use the combo to make a CLASS card?  Mmm, what do you think Ladies?
