Color Challenge

I made a quick card after I got home from work today for the SCS color challenge, concord crush, bashful blue, and pear pizzaz.  I thought the color combo was an easy one this week, and the colors do look good together.

I had to nix my original idea to rock 'n roll the flower because I don't have the Concord Crush ink pad; I just have the marker.  So I colored the center of the flower instead, and added a tiny blue rhinestone.   The sentiment was popped not because I made a mistake stamping it on the panel, but because I thought it added a little interest and looked better that way.  I do wish I hadn't stamped it on the panel, though, because now it looks like I did make a mistake.

Oh, well.

Stamps - Apple Blossoms
Paper - Concord Crush, GKD PL white
Ink - Bashful Blue
Accessories - Pear Pizzaz and Concord Crush markers, rhinestone, word window punch, dimensionals

Hope you're having a great day!

Nobody but an obsessive stamper would even think to suspect a mistake under a popped sentiment. And even this obsessive stamper (whose used that trick several times) didn't suspect you of using it here...the popping just adds interest and looks awesome! Lovely card!

This is so beautiful! I love it! Elegant, CAS and gorgeous! Love the popped up sentiment. You can't see from the pic that you stamped it on the panel first. Love the light blue flower with the concord crush center!

This is a beautifully simple card! Love the colors, too...must go look at that challenge! And don't obsess about that sentiment...if you never spilled the beans, we'd have never known!

The popped up sentiment caught my attention first thing and thought how perfect it was. The flower is beautiful and the sentiment stamped flat would have been, well, flat! I love the clean lines and the way you used the colors.
