Hi! I love playing at the Play Date Cafe challenges - their colors are always fun. Here is this week's photo inspiration. Be sure to go look at the DT examples - and check out Sav's take on them:
When I make a card, unless I have a specific image in mind, I often start by looking through my design papers and card stock to pull the colors for the challenge. In this case, right away I went to this beautiful K&Company butterfly paper that has the colors required, plus cream and chocolate brown. I wish I could show you how pretty it is - the gold swirls in it are very slightly glittered. In the same pack was the coral and pink plaid. I liked them both against this pale gold parchment paper, so that was my card base, and then I just added a shell pink. Because of the chocolate in the main panel, I ended up framing each of the other panels in chocolate cardstock. Here was my first version:
The more I looked at it, that ribbon looked too bright and too thin, so off it came and I made a new sentiment panel and placed it to the right:
Then I placed it to the left:
supplies: dark cream parchment, pale pink, and chocolate card stocks, BoBunny flamingo dot (reverse), K&Company "Garden Party" design papers, Hero Arts CL166 SparkleClear Special Friend, Memento Artprint Brown ink, Nesties labels eight die, Martha Stewart small Monarch butterfly punch, gold pearls
I don't know........I'm confused.........what do you think?
Once again, I'm entering this into the "Anything Goes" challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
