Two Challenges In One Card!

Hi everyone!
I love to do this ... incorporate 2 challenges in one card. It makes me go outside the box for sure! so today ... Monday - Mojo Monday always has a new challenge for us. Today it was to use this sketch -
AND - on the weekend CR84FN challenged us to use this color combo on a card....
Now, I must say that when I saw these colors listed together I didn't think I could pull it off... the picture is gorgeous but could I find these colors in my stash of S. Up! paper to meet the challenge? Here is my creation for both of these challenges!


Inside the card....

So - what do you think? Did I make it work? I think so! I really like the finished card... and sometimes that doesn't happen so easily for me! I used Silver and Basic Gray for the "gray" ... not a color I use a lot of! Also used Basic Gray to stamp the frame and inside the card. The ribbon is Basic Gray; the "curly" stamp comes from a SAB set - Sweet Summer... I'm loving this particular stamp! And the DSP is from Paisley Petals ... I talked about the promotion for this DP and Frames in my post yesterday... you might want to check this out! :)

Hope you enjoyed your peek here today. Thanks for stopping by!

Tuesday is our Kreations Klub night ... can't show you the projects yet!!!! I will take some pics and post them later in the week!
Have a great week!
Hugs!
