Color Me Beautiful Challenge #3
Hello! It's Friday! My favorite day of the week! Not only does it mean the weekend is here, but it's also time for a new color challenge at Color Me Beautiful! I am having so much fun playing with the wonderful color combinations and this week is no exception!
Check out these yummy colors...
and our color palette...
Anyone else hungry for eggplant Parmesan, or is it just me?!
When I originally saw these pictures they really called Halloween to me. So I made a Halloween card, but me and my nitpicky, wishy washy ways, I wasn't loving that card. It wasn't horrible, but I really wanted something better to share, so I went back to the drawing board and made a new card...
Nope, not Halloween... but I like this one a lot more! Plus, it gave me the excuse to pull out some new toys and play with them!! AND I have another Christmas card completed!! Bonus!
Have I mentioned that I love the bundles in the Holiday catalog?! As if coordinating stamp sets and framelits weren't wonderful enough, you also save money when you purchase them together!! How could I NOT buy them????
I hope the inspiration picture, color palette, and my little ol' card have encouraged you to pull out these SU colors and some SU stamps and play along!! I'll be patiently waiting to see your wonderful creations!
Be sure to check back later this week and I'll share my first attempt card with you. Like I said, it's not horrid and I like it, but it just wasn't WOW like I wanted it to be.
