Today I have a double challenge card for you combining a sketch challenge from the Diva Coffee Break Designs blog DCBD153 and the Color Throwdown blog CT68. I was kinda in the mood to make some Christmas cards (finally!) but the color challenges so far this wek are no where near Christmasy! When I first saw these colors, I was at a loss of what to do. Then I saw the Diva sketch and an idea started forming. Here are the challenge inspirations:
Really?! Only Orange, Real Red, and Crushed Curry? Wow! Not the colors I was hoping for. But I have to say, I really like how this card turned out.
Isn't it so bright and cheerful and fun?! I love Gerbera Daisies and these colors remind me of them. The Big Shot Daisy #2 die makes cutting these little guys out sooooo easy. And best of all, you can make them in any color you want, unlike pre-made embellishements which cost a chunk of change and only come in a limited variety of colors. Can you tell I love my Big Shot?!
The card base is Basic Black, layered with Real Red Textured cardstock. The daisies are cut out of Real Red, Only Orange and Crushed Curry, with a Circle Fire Rhinestone in each center. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (LOVE this set!) and is punched out using the Modern Label Punch.
