Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #20



HI Everyone,
Its time for another Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge. This week we were challenged with 5 yummy colors - inspired from a page from Pottery Barn Kids. I can't believe that this challenge makes #20! Wow! Time flies fast when you are having fun :)

The couch had a bold print on it which was softened by a light pink. I liked that idea and created my own background in Photoshop with all of the 5 colors that Kristina gave us. 
I made leaves out of Chocolate chip, the butterflies out of the two pink colors and the green dots (that are a fabric option for the chair) from the Certainly Celery color. After printing the panel 3 times, I adhered it to the cardstock.

 I then added 1" punched out circles to give it a faux embossing, scalloped look on the side, along with ribbon and sentiment. 

I also tried another card that was mostly a regal rose color with the  same background and sentiment - just different layout... 

I enjoyed making both cards - they provided much needed card therapy. It has been a rough few days around here - and its so nice to be able to create something ....it is so therapeutic to cut and paste and stamp :)

Sorry for this crazy blog layout - I have been having trouble trying to get everything centered - and 45 minutes later I can't seem to get it right... arg! Anyhoo - on that note, it seems that my blogging time for today is officially over because my daughter is biting my knee (she is 16 months) so off I go to give her some snuggly cuddles :)

Hope you all have a great Wednesday!
Thanks for visiting,

Ciao for now,
Sankari
