Color challenged...


I'm not. Or at least I don't think that I am. I mean, I know how to employ a color wheel as well as anyone else...but I am really digging color challenges lately. Of course, they won't top my favorite sketch challenges, but I am really enjoying them. :)

On the Our Creative Corner blog this week, a challenge was made to use Old Olive, Ruby Red and Pumpkin Pie with Chocolate Chip being an optional color. I happen to LOVE these colors. A lot. Autumn is my favorite season all year so I'm always so excited when it comes to using these fun colors on something.

What I used: Glam Girl from C.C. Designs at All That Scraps, Memento ink, Copic markers, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, SU! CS, GP CS, DCWV PP, Studio G stamp for the sentiment, old olive ink, ribbon from Michael's, Prima flowers, Hero Arts flower, Making Memories brad.

I had so much fun making this card. The girl was a bit tricky to snip out with those bony little arms of hers (yeah, mine are like that too...I WISH!) But I knew I wanted to layer her on a Cuttlebug'd oval.

So anyway, thanks for stopping by today! I have to work a full time schedule this week. BOO! But it is okay, just for a few weeks more (hopefully? I keep saying that, don't I? LOL!)
