I sat down to create my card using the photograph and colors for our challenge and just couldn't come up with something right away. I figured I wanted to capture something that represented the weather we're experiencing, but nothing was coming to my mind. Then, all of a sudden, I got an idea in my head and made it work. I did add a bit of silver foil to my card for interest, as I do think the card needed it.
Here is the picture we used for inspiration, along with the color pallet:
So now you see the colors we had to work with - very chilly and cold, don't you think? Can you see why I struggled a bit? Well, fear not ... I did manage to pull one off, and this is what I created for you:
Paper: island indigo, pool party, silver foil, whisper white
Ink: pool party, island indigo, lost lagoon, sahara sand, smoky slate, silver metallic
Stamp Sets: many merry stars, gorgeous grunge, endless wishes, cheerful tags, work of art
Accessories: basic rhinestones
Success! I hope you like it. I'm happy with the way it turned out. So let's check out what Carol created this week. I can't wait to see how she used these colors in her card. Also, don't forget to hop on over to Joni's blog too. Joni always has a jump on these challenges - she's just that good.
Well, hope you have a wonderful day, and stay warm and dry if you're expecting snow in your area. Tis the season, they say.
Thanks for stopping by!
