Hello Stamping Friends,
Today's post is a rather masculine birthday card based on a color theme from Try Stampin' -Or Not- On Tuesday. To be honest, this color combo freaked me out a little bit at first glance, and then I just let it roll around in my head for awhile and did some deep breathing LOL! It's called a challenge for a reason, right? :-)
My sketch inspiration was from this card:
I thought it was so cute that it made the top picks for my blog feature: Sunday's One Stop, Blog Hop a few weeks ago.
Here is the color challenge for this week:
And here is my take on the scheme:
For me, it's a bold statement of color: I used the new Cucumber Crush, Night Of Navy, and Daffodil Delight
with a few navy candy dots for a little visual interest, and to mimic the stamped dots in the background.
It's a very quick and easy card that could even translate into a neat personalized graduation card. Just used the graduates school colors!
I hope you've enjoyed today's post and have a chance to try this color challenge this week. Above all, take a deep breath and have fun!!
