Being on spring break means I have more spare time on my hands than I know what to do with. So what do I do with it? Spend hours looking at challenge blogs and making cards - that's what. I love the Colour Q site when I need inspiration, but I've never played along with their challenges. Of course the week I choose to do so, one of the colours I like least shows up.
Don't get me wrong, Tempting Turquoise is a nice colour, but I rarely find myself using the brights. (However, I did make 2 cards with brights this week...) It was especially challenging to use these colours together.
I knew that I wanted to have white butterflies, so I added a few in Rich Razzleberry as well. I think they look whimsical. I really like the layout that I did for this card, so I think I'll repeat it in neutrals for a wedding card.
I'm not in love with this one, but I like it well enough. I should have left the bottom corner alone and I would have liked it more, but, being a challenge and all, I tried something that I don't usually do, and stamped the sentiment right on the DSP. Big mistake. It looked horrible. I had to cover it up with something, so this is what I ended up with.
Why am I posting this card if I don't like it? Because I did something outside of my comfort zone, and though I don't love the colours, I do love the layout.
