Blogger's Challenge: Orange, Blue, Moss



My post this week is going to be short and sweet as I'm not thrilled with my creation, but I'm not feeling creative enough tonight to make another one.

Our challenge this week was to use orange, blue and moss.  I went more of the rust route when it came to the orange, but I like this color combo.

I used a few of my Stampotique stamps which I've been wanting to use, but think I will have to try my hand with these stamps again.
Make sure to check out the other girls cards here and see how they used this color combination.



Card details:
Stamps: Puffs and  Dotted Squares from Stampotique Originals
Cardstock: Really Rust, Mellow Moss, Brocade Blue
Inks: Same as cardstock
Accessories: white gel pen

Oh Kim you are way to hard on yourself. This is a very nice CAS card with lots of "pop"! The White Gel accents really look great and that little floral image is so charming.
