Blogger's Challenge #69: Color challenge












HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!



Yep, another Friday is here, and that means another Bloggers Challenge. This weeks challenge was a color challenge. The colors were Old Olive, Really Rust, Riding Hood Red (white/vanilla or confetti may be used). Color challenges are Hard for me because I rarely make a card without designer paper.


This challenge turned out to be no different. I serious spent 4 hours off and on making this card. Finally I had to break into the DP. Also, I didn't have riding Hood Red, so I used Cranberry, which I hope is close enough. This card is very different for me. I like to use cutesy images, but I really did enjoy coloring the pumpkins and leaves. I LOVE TO COLOR!!!.

This card is the perfect card for our New England fall. It is gorgeous right now. The leaves are slightly past peak and the temp is getting colder, but it is really pretty.Here are a couple photos I have taken recently of the trees and things.








Supplies:


Stamps: CTMH

paper: SU cardstock, Basic Grey DP.

Ink: watercolor crayons, staz on

Misc: Leave punch, Stickles, CTMH brads, Sizzix embossing folders, Marvy scallop punch.

Have a great weekend.
