Colour Challenge

Hi everyone – enjoying your weekend?

 

This week at Come and Get It we have a colour challenge which is Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

 

Hmm I love these colours, yes the Pumpkin Pie is rather bright but a little goes a long way – what do you think ?  Are you thinking outside the box on how to use these colours? 

 

What did I do?  I used Rich Razzleberry for the base of my card and added a layer of Very Vanilla which has been stamped with Crumb Cake and the En Francais script.

 

I added a strip of the Rich Razzleberry DSP from the Summer Smooches pack. I tore one side and then daubered a little Rich Razzleberry ink.

 

I added some swirls in Old Olive and some Pumpkin Pie butterflies which had been cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die.

 

The sentiment is from the retired On Your Birthday stamp set and instead of bling I have gone with Pearls, just a few on the butterflies.

 

Here is my card…

I think you've created a really nice card for this color challenge. Your card is simple and elegant, I love how you've used 2 papers as background - the scripted paper and pink pattern paper look great together!
