A Colour Challenge

As is so often the case, I see FABULOUS ideas all over the place. That's the beauty (and sometimes the downfall) of surfing the net.

The other day, the beauty was that I found a colour challenge base on using the new In Colours and coordinating them with our current core colours. The downfall is, now that I'm ready to post, I have no recollection of where I saw it - ARGH!!! I'm pretty sure it was someone's blog (I subscribe to so many, I lose track!) If you recognize the challenge, PLEASE let me know so I can send you to the blogger in question. (Note: Before this posted - LOVE auto post - thanks to Claudia and her persistence, I have now discovered that it was a SUDSOL challenge!)

Anyway, the challenge was to use Bermuda Bay and match it with Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and other colour. I managed to use the four colours I listed and I think it turned out pretty good:
I used another stamp from Very Thankful which I stamped in Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White. It was matted on a piece of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and then I added the flowers from our Flower Fusion Accents and Elements.

I used a piece of Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay ribbon around it, adhered it to the card base and called it done. I think it turned out pretty good!

What do you think?

STAMPS: Very Thankful
INKS: Pumpkin Pie
PAPERS: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock; Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
ACCESSORIES: Flower Fusion, Rhinestone Brad, Ribbon

Happy Stampin'!

  3. Pretty card! :)

    I was wondering....How do you get 3 columns on your blog? I only see options for 2 columns, different formats, but still only 2. Is there something special one has to do to get 3? Thanks!!!
