Color Challenge #12

This week's color challenge was inspired by all the bright color combos on the bella forums the past few weeks. After making some fun cards I felt the need to make the color challenge for this week bright! I usually have a really hard time using the bright colors so this was also to get me out of my box ^_~ To play make a project using at least 3 of the colors. If you don't have CTMH colors and want to play just use whatever you have that's close. Please leave me a comment if you play so I can link your artwork to this post as well and have fun!

Pink Carnation
Citrus Leaf
Crystal Blue
Orchard Bouquet


Sue's Flower Card
Jenn's Adorable Elephant Card

My example :

This is one of the very few layouts I've tried that just uses cardstock. It was quite a challenge for me since I LOVE pattern paper. I sanded the cardstock to give it a softer feel and add some texture. The purple journaling mat was embossed with the cuttlebug and then sanded, the pink background paper was scored then sanded as well for more texture. The only embellishment is a single big bloom flower from CTMH that I cut up to fit with the page maps layout that I used. Playful Petals and Serendipity stamp sets were used for the flowers and Extreme Caps was used for the title. I wasn't sure if I'd like the page seeing as in the beginning it didn't seem to flow but the end result turned out super cute!

Just posted on the CTMH BB. I am such a fan of your blog and your artwork. I thought it was time to start playing. I don't know how you do it with 2 little ones, but it sure does inspire me. I've yet to catch my kiddos in a position anything close to that! Too funny. Ahhh to be a kid!
