Challenging Color Challenge


This week at Come and Get It Challenges, I am hosting a Color Challenge. The colors are Peach, Mint or Light Green and Olive Green. When I chose this combo, I thought it would be very easy to create a card with it. OHHHH, was I wrong. I didn't realize I have NO PEACH INK! ( That will change as I will be getting some of SU's Peach Parfait~) I decided I needed to find something in peach besides my cardstock, so I went on a hunt. I had a few gorgeous DP, but the greens weren't right, so I thought I would just make my own flowers. I wasn't loving the punched flowers, and remembered the link Cindy gave me for Roses made with 5 petal flower punches. You can find it HERE. Oh my goodness, I just LOVE how they came out! I faked the rosebud, but I think it works, what do you think?
I will enter this card into other challenges out there this week:
2 Sisters - Spring
Designed 2 Delight - Handmade Flowers
Shannon's - 3 Flowers and No DP
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - May Flowers
Papertake - Fancy A Punch

The rest of the card came together on its own... The leaves are a die from SU, and the scalloped edge is also by SU. The embossing folder is by Cuttlebug. I must say that is color challenge has turned into one of my favorite creations. I hope you will come play with us at Come and Get It Challenges this week!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a WONDERFUL Sunday!

Rubber Hugs,
Julie

Hey Julie...nice card, it is simple yet elegant. I also had trouble with this challenge...who knew these colours would be so hard to work with.But we both cam through which is why we do these challenges eh!

Your roses are gorgeous. I love your "faked" rose bud.

I can see why you would choose this color combo. It is very pretty together.

Thanks for joining us at Creative Card Crew.
