I wanted to get in on two fun challenges this week. Inspire.Create.Challenge #19 which is a color challenge and the TGIF Sketch Challenge #163.
The color challenge has been open for a while and I have been struggling with inspiration – I guess that is why it is a challenge! This is why I enjoy participating as they stretch my creativity and hopefully make me a better crafter.
This morning the idea just came to me.
The card is pretty straight forward. The Orange slice is in Grapefruit Grove, the Lemon in Pineapple Punch, and the leaves in Call me Clover. The In Color Designer Series Paper Stack and the sentiment bring in the Blueberry Bushel. the finishing touch is a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon for texture.
I added a little zest on the inside as well. Confession: When I stamped the sentiment (after stamping the lemon) I smudged ink SO I stamped the sentiment again and punched it out with a retired punch. Perhaps I should have simply started over but I hate to waste paper.
While I did not use all five colors I am pretty pleased with the result.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your week allows you to live your life with zest!
