Color Inspiration Challenge #12

Hi Everyone,

Its time for another color challenge from Kristina Werner. This time the challenge had four colors : Whisper White, Sahara Sand, So Saffron and Wasabi Green.  

I have to say it was a little bit of a hard challenge - just the combination of colors and all... but one thing that I have noticed in doing these challenges, is that I make cards that are outside my box - although I don't really know what my box is.... Anyhow - I have to say I liked how the card turned out - I was trying to follow the design of the placemat from the picture - with just little pops of color from the flowers. It's kinda fun to work with circles - I just wanted to keep cutting circles out - (the Cutting System from Creative Memories is awesome for circle cutting...) and the little flowers are just so cute and sweet.

I guess maybe - just that I think a little bit more of the design of the card then just throwing things together. Anyhow... the only stamp is the sentiment Congratulations, which is from G Studio stamps  (only a $1 at AC Moore - Holla!). All the papers are from my scrap pile -not sure from where - the only one I know is the Sahara Sand look alike is from American Traditional Designs and I love this DP - its so nice - feels so good and is double sided cardstock with beautiful vines on the back. The flowers and pearl embellishments are from Kaiser Scrapbook - they are both lovely and delicious.


I really do look forward to these challenges - can't wait till the next one!
Hope all of you are well and are enjoying this beautiful weekend!

Ciao for now!

Really like the texture you used on the card. Did you use the Cuttlebug to get this? Really cute!

Wow, I love all the textures to the circles! Very 3D looking! They sort of remind of shells. Challenges can be fun . . .it does make you think outside of your box! You're doing great!
