Purple and Orange

The challenge at Riley and Company this week is a color challenge, orange and purple.  This is definitely a hard combination for me as a card maker.  When I think of orange and purple, I automatically think of Halloween.  So,  Heather, this was definitely a challenge!

When I made this card I had to start with the paper and work from there.  I used a piece of plain orange yardstick and paired that with a paper that was loose in my stash, but I think it comes from Close to My Heart.  Once I had these I decided I should use confetti cream from Stamping' Up for the base color, because the cream looked better than the white.  Once I had the basic design down, I decided I wanted to do a summery scene since we are just in the heart of summer right now.  I used Hammock Riley that can be found HERE in the Riley and Company Store.  

Once I had that panel colored I had my daughter pick out a sentiment that went with it:

I think she did a great job!  She chose Self-Control that you can also find HERE.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Penny Black - Add a sentiment
Stamping Sensations - feature a creature

Have a great week!  I will see you soon!
