Color combo challenges always stump me. So, when I saw the aquamarine/taupe/white combo at ScrapFit (click here to go to the color challenge). I wasn't sure if I wanted to try it out. But, I saved the picture on my iPad anyway. ;) (I save the challenge pictures on my iPad and then browse my pictures for a challenge to do) I liked the sketch over at Artful Delight (click here to go to the Artful Delight blog) so I thought maybe if I had a color combo AND a sketch to use, I might be able to come up with a card. So, I got to work.
I recently bought Crate Paper's "Fourteen" collection and I just loooove the colors of this line. Lucky for me, there is some aquamarine in this collection! I loved the large chevron paper and so I just knew I had to use it on my card. Then I proceeded to find some pretty taupe colored embellishments... a corrugated Jillibean Soup circle, a Prima flower, and a chipboard doily from the Crate Paper collection I was talking about above. I added a white pennant and a transparent sentiment from Basic Grey's "Fact & Fiction" line.
I pretty much love this card. As I said, I'm not really all into the color combo thing, but I actually think I succeeded in this challenge! ;)
