A color challenge

Jackie at Rockwell Designs has given us an interesting challenge: she's systematically changing out the colors in her blog header and she's invited us to play along as she does, and make a card for each color.  She's in her 2nd color now, and since I love color challenges, I'm all in.  I'm catching up with 2 cards today.

The first challenge is the Greyed Jade challenge:

We can add neutrals like white, black, grey, or kraft to the accent color, and I used kraft:

My papers are from Studio Calico's Darling Dear pad, and the sentiment is a new The Craft's Meow one, stamped in mid-tone pool ink.  I added some twine, too.

Jackie's 2nd color is Tender Shoots, a green I am always drawn to:

I love it with grey, so this one was really fun for me:

I've had that paper in my stash forever, so I was glad it worked for this challenge.  I added some grey-striped washi, and a PTI daisy die, centered with a big button in the same color.  My sentiment is from one of Hero Arts' oldest clear sets, but I still love this sentiment.  It was stamped in their mid-tone charcoal.

Jackie will choose a winner from all of her challenges and that person will win a free custom blog header design by Jackie! Goodness knows this blog could use a facelift, so I plan to play as often as I can!  Hope you will join me!

Both cards are wonderful, Lin but I really love the second one - beautiful pairing of colors!

Wonderful cards Lin! I too especially love how the second one combines the colors. The green really pops!

I'm thrilled that you played along in both challenges!!! :)
