Pals Paper Art Color Challenge #170

This week the Pals Paper Art Challenge is a Color Challenge #170.  This was a tough challenge. While I love each of these colors individually, I struggled putting them together.  Here are the colors:

The Midnight Muse and Crushed curry are striking together especially against Whisper White or Very Vanillla.  But adding Early Espresso did muddy things up (pun intended).  So here is what I did…

As I the card unfolded I was not certain I liked it, then I added the Magnificent Maple in Crushed Curry and the sentiment and it all seemed to come together. As I look at the card now, I should have added three crushed curry candy dots on the right side to balance the weight of the card. That is the wonderful part of creating, you can always add a little something and enhance the project further.

The inside of the card I used a stamp from the Really Good Greetings and masked off the the words I did not want.

I sent this off to our son who is at the University of Florida.  He will like the masculine colors and of course the little bit of cash contained in the card.

I hope you enjoyed this challenge adventure with me.  Until tomorrow…
