Thanks to all who entered our specialty challenge this last week. We had an amazing number of enteries and all of them rocked! This week we are back to a color challenge. Megan gave us an a wicked color combo! I just loved it :) The colors are: Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla. With all of the snow lately it is really nice to play with some bright colors. These colors helped me step out of my comfort zone and try something new. Hope you like it! It was so awesome to see the sun this weekend too, it sure does brighten the spirits.
I went looking for some inspiration and let me tell you I found it from my fellow DT's and from a few other challenge sites, who helped me put my card together, Thank You. Papertake Weekly challenge is to use ribbon and pearls (it worked perfect with my bashful blue satin ribbon and vanilla pearls). Stampin Royalty #55 challenge is to use anything with Wings (since these colors had me thinking of spring, I used a bashful blue butterfly). Flutter By Wednesday challenge #138 is a open week (you have to use a fairy, angel or butterfly in your creation). The sketch that really got me thinking with these fabby colors was Card Patterns. It is a beautiful clean and simple.
Here is my card! It is bright with a touch of spring! I used a Martha Stewart punches (flower border and butterfly), linen thread for the cherry cobbler button. I had fun playing with the bashful blue ribbon. The very vanilla is embossed with Victorian cuttlebug folder. My flower was cut out from Blossom Party die and vanilla pearls from Stampin Up. Thank goodness for fun colors that inspire you. Thanks Megan.
I hope you all can join us again this week. It was so much fun seeing what each of you created. For more inspiration hop on over to Picture Perfect Creations to see Lori, Paula, Melissa, Sandy and Megan! They creations rock:) It has been great seeing our number climbing in the challenges, we would love to see even more this week.
Wishing you all a very happy Monday! Thanks for stopping bye and sharing my card with me.
