Our Creative Corner - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday and thanks for stopping by! My card for today is for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner. This week our October host, Lori Rider, has challenged us to a Color Challenge. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

Lori has put together a wonderful color combination for the fall: Blush Blossom, Sage Shadow, Handsome Hunter and Soft Suede - feel free to use colors that are similar.

For my sample, I want a little country! I just LOVE the warmth of country crafts and I hope I reached it with this card layout!! After adding the stitching and layering, I inked up the floral image using my SU markers. I then used a block stamp over the floral image - lightly. Ink was sponged around the background piece and flowers were added using a small punch and blush blossom cardstock. The final embellishment was to add the heart chipboard coverd in blush blossom cardstock along with the sentiment. I was really happy with the way my card turned out - I must say, in the end, this was a tough challenge for me!!

My card today will be going to a special friend of ours; she collapsed during work and needed open heart surgery. We hope and pray that she makes a full & speedy recovery!

Please stop by the OCC to see the other samples by the amazing OCC designers. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs & Smiles,

Wow, I am in love with your card this week, Jennifer! You really nailed this challenge. Those big, bold polka dots on the soft suede are wonderful and your three-D flowers are the icing on the (cup)cake! It's a perfect classic country card.
