Color Inspiration #39


Hi All!
Two posts in one day! I decided today to do a color challenge...Kristina Werner at KWerner Designs posts a Color Inspiration Challenge weekly. Some of the cards submitted for her challenges are awesome! She will pick 15 personal favorites from all the submissions (last week there was over 200+ for her to look at!) So - here is my card for this challenge... using So Saffron, Green Galore, Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black. You will note that I have used some Glittery black and silver CS that I purchased at Michael's a few months ago. The stamp set is a retired hostess set from Stampin' Up! called Serene Spring - earlier today I mentioned how I long for Spring to arrive! Guess that's my theme for today! I colored with blender pen, markers and ink; used black gingham ribbon , bold brads; also, the scallop edge punch.
I popped the bird scene, matted in black, on the red; and then popped the red on the card background... I also popped the butterfly. This is a retired set as I said - however, I'm thinking it's a "keeper".
The biggest challenge now will be to get the card uploaded to her site so she can see it. Wish me luck!

Enjoy!
Ruthie

Your card is super cute!! You did a great job coloring. Just FYI, you'll be disqualified by Kristina because your link isn't correct. You need to copy and paste the below: http://rainbowkreations.blogspot.com/2009/01/color-inspiration-39.html to the URL link.

If you hover over the links that are currently there, the ones you copied into the URL, you'll see the date/time at the end of the URL. This is a no no.

Hope this helps!!!!
