{Sweet Sketch #12} Color Challenge Too!



Check out this most unlikely combination of Stampin' Up colors! They are: certainly celery, so saffron, real red and only orange. Seriously?!

First. I printed off this week's Sweet Sketch for guidance and then I pulled out a sheet of cardstock for each of these colors. *gasp* What in the world was Arlana thinking!?! :) I'll tell you what she was thinking ~ *challenge*!

It took me longer than usual to create this card, mainly because I had to try every which way of using the colors. Finally, I decided to tame down the fiery red and orange and emphasize the soft saffron & celery.

The stamps used are from Stampin' Up ~ Love Is In the Air and Noteworthy. I've used the polka dot Cuttlebug folder on the so saffron piece and stitched down the layers. Just three little brads and some ribbon to embellish. I hope you like my sketch card and I invite you *ALL* to join in the challenge! Please hop on over the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog for all the details! If you need a bit more persuading, check out what all the other gals on the Sweet Sketch team have created this week.

I want to give a GET WELL SOON shout out to Arlana, the fantastic designer and organizer of Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The poor gal has been battling a sinus infection this week and I'm hoping by the time she sees this, she's feeling as good as new!

How's your week going so far, my friends? The days fly by, don't they?! Whatever you do, try to find time to do what you enjoy!

Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U!
