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 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!
