Brrr....


Today over at The Play Date Cafe, Stampotique is thrilled to be the sponsor of this current color challenge.  Stampotique is giving away a grab bag of stamps worth up to $30, so head on over there and join in on the fun.


I was STUMPED by this color challenge, I could not visualize this color combination at all for some reason.  Finally I broke down and colored an image and then I looked at it a few days before I was able to visualize how to put it all together.  It helped to have a great sketch from the Card Positioning Systems which I turned on it's side.


I'm lame today and was thankful that my wonderful design team friend, Maria pointed out that I didn't even put my photo of my own card up!  LOL!  And now that I look at this, I never even finished my post.  So much for me thinking I was ahead of the game.

So, here's my card.  And if you would like some additional inspiration check out our design team at Stampotique Designer's Challenge as well as the design team at The Play Date Cafe.



Card details:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Green with Envy, Eggplant Envy and Orchid Opulence, patterned paper retired Stampin' Up!

Embellishments: dimensionals, copic 0.3 pen, corner punch

Hee hee! Funny sentiment! I think you approached this color challenge the right way, by coloring an image and keeping the background relatively simple. THe houndstooth pattern goes really well, by the way! Thanks for playing with us at The Play dAte CAfe this week. :)
