Am I addicted??

I think I'm addicted to color challenges... They have a way of motivating me to use products that I normally wouldn't use together. Like this- Kristine Werner challenged her blog readers to create a card using this as their inspiration:



It is a beautiful dress, isn't it? The color scheme though? Rose Red, Regal Rose, Sage Shadow, and Whisper White... Not one that I would choose normally but, it was fun to use for this card.

Here is what I came up with:



Goodies:

Stamps: Simply Said set by Stampin' Up!
Ink: Sage Shadow, Rose Red, and Regal Rose Classic Stampin' Pads
Paper: Sage Shadow, Rose Red, Regal Rose, and Whisper White card stock by Stampin' Up!
Other: Ribbon by Making Memories; Jewel, unknown; dimensionals by Stampin' Up!

I decided to use a set I've had forever but rarely break out of its plastic, Simply Said. This set was the first I ever purchased from Stampin' Up! I thought it would be great for simple cards... Now that I have so many others, I find that I forget about it a little... Poor little set!

No tricks on this one! The only tools I used were some punches, my water pen (to fill in the little flowers along the side) and a new favorite, the tool that is used to apply decor elements to the wall! It is a great little distresser!!

OK! Hope all you out in blog land have a great day!
