Another Wonderful Color Challenge!


Dawn McVey at My Favorite Things has posted another fantastic challenge! Here is Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #2! This week's photo is again from Pottery Barn Teen and it's the blue/green version of their Tropical Punch quilt from last week's color challenge! I *love* these colors together!


My 5-1/2" square card didn't end up quite as bright and colorful as I was hoping for, but hopefully you can see that I was trying to work with the challenge colors. I've used Stampin Up chocolate chip, certainly celery and tempting turquoise. I'm not sure why I thought I needed to distress everything, perhaps to make it look OLD...like Maude in the image! (This is an Art Impressions stamp from 1996 so she is OLD! LOL :) I stamped the cardstock with the Stampin Up linen background stamp and Versafine vintage sepia ink. As you can tell, I also have a passion for using designer paper on my cards and this polka dot one is from a K&Company Mat Pad.


You can imagine how much FUN Maude is to color with Copic markers. She's not smiling, but I was! :) The sentiment "Smile! You're on Candid Camera!" is a stamp that I bought at Viva Las Vegas Stamps when we were there last December. To see more info and photos of the store go to this post.

Isn't she funny?! I hope she makes you SMILE today!

Now, you really must check out all the other cards created using this color scheme. The best way is to go to Dawn's blog and click on the names posted with Mr. Linky. Whoever invented this was brilliant!

Happy Stamping & Keep Smiling!
