A new challenge blog, Color Me Beautiful!, started up last Friday so I thought I'd check it out and see if it would be something I might find interesting. Oh yeah! It's going to be a fun one and I'm definitely going to try to follow it weekly. And, they picked some of my favorite colors for the very first challenge.
I wanted to try to use all five of the colors. It was a challenge to figure out just how much of what color to use and where to use it. Here is the card I designed using all of the colors. The photo does not do justice to the card. Lately my photos have not be all that good. I'm blaming the camera and going to ask for a new one for Christmas.
Stamp Set(s): Everything Eleanor, You Are Loved; Ink(s): Perfect Plum, VersaMark; Card Stock: Basic Gray, Lucky Limeade, Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder; Accessories & Tools: 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon/Wisteria Wonder, Dazzling Details/Silver Sparkle, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Stampin' Emboss Powder/Clear, Crystal Effects, Mini Glue Dots, Little Leaves Sizzlits, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

Yesterday was unexpectedly child-free, so not only did I get my challenge card made, I finished my swap cards and had a chance to spend some time with my upline, Andrea. I always enjoy time with her.
