Kwerner Color Inspiration Challenge 55


Morning all - it's a drizzly Saturday morning here in CA. So, in the midst of my chores this morning, I found time to create a card for Kristina's Color Challenge 55. When I first saw the colors, I have to say that I wasn't really sure what to do - it's definitely a new color scheme for me. Then after I did some blog browsing this morning, I was inspired by the card design from Mary Fish's Father's Day card on her blog today. I liked the look of the tiled squares, so I thought I'd give it a try. First, let me show you what the colors are for Kristina's challenge this week:Here's my full card:
I experimented with scrunching up the ribbon - I wasn't sure how that was gonna come out, but I think I do like it afterall! I used a piece of sticky strip and put that on the card, then just applied the ribbon on top, scrunching it along as I went across. I was surprised at how well the sticky strip held the ribbon. That's some good adhesive. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the card and my attempt at this new color scheme. I like it with the In Colors! What do you think?
Here's the recipe:
*Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die
*Razzle Dazzle and Oval all stamp sets
*Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry textured cardstock and markers; Very Vanilla and Basic Gray cardstock
*Basic Gray taffeta ribbon and corduroy brads; very vanilla brad
*1 1/4" square, scallop oval and large oval punches
Thanks for coming by! Have a great day!

LOVE the idea of using the razzle dazzle image for the butterfly!! I'm really enjoying using the stamp set... have to agree about color combo and comfort zone, although you did a beautiful job as usual, Rose!
