Kwerner Color Inspiration Challenge 56

Hey there! When Kristina posted her challenge yesterday, I know I had to play, but I gotta tell ya - I had a little trouble getting a card together with this color scheme. Don't get me wrong - I love the color palette...I just struggled with a theme to pull all these colors together! Here's what we're working with:See - the colors are fun - aren't they? There's just a lot of them that cover quite a range in the color spectrum! So here's the card I came up with: Whaddayathink? I like it, but not sure I'm quite loving it yet...maybe it will grow on me. It was good practice on my Janome, though, that's for sure! And, I did have fun with all the different elements - as you can tell, this card is heavy on the Big Shot and light on the stamping ;) Here's a close up - I even used the texturz plate for the background that you can kinda see here. I got to use the polka dot acetate sheet, too, and my gorgeous NEW Real Red Polka Dot ribbon! Now, for the recipe (all supplies SU! except where noted):
*Real Red, Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White cardsstock
*Real Red Classic stamp pad
*Beautiful Butterflies and Flower Layers dies; Stampin'Up Backgrounds Texturz plate
*Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, Real Red polka dot grosgrain ribbon
*Modern Label punch, large oval punch, corduroy buttons, flower brad, polka dot acetate sheet
*non SU supplies: Fiskars border punch, thread
Thanks for visiting today! Have a good one ;)
