Happy Sunday, friends. If you celebrate Easter--happy egg hunting! If you're hunting up a lovely color challenge, look no further than LeAnne's gorgeous choices for this week's color challenge at The Paper Players:
Blues and greens are always a favorite and so easy to mix together. I recently acquired a large background stamp called Sweet Floral and decided to use that as the focal point for today's card:
Pretty dramatic, eh?! Stamping the darker color, Not Quite Navy, onto the lighter Pool Party is an easy way to incorporate two of the challenge colors. For a little pop, I stamped the floral image again and fussy-cut a few of the flowers:
Now, to incorporate Certainly Celery, I layered striped grosgrain ribbon, a label stamped with a Four Frames image and an itty bit of Pool Party ruffled ribbon:
I made my sentiment from the mix-and-match set, Fabulous Phrases in Not Quite Navy with a little background stamping in Pool Party. I had so much fun playing with these colors and I know that you will too! Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team for their amazing inspiration. I hope you will join in the fun over at The Paper Players. Remember, this challenge will close on Friday, April 13th at Noon (PST). Hope to see you there!
