Color Chef Challenge #2

So... it has been a while since I have been able to sit down and actually create! I have been craving it and finally had some time tonight :) Kelly Ratcliff is hosting a weekly Color Challenge on her blog, so I am going to TRY to keep up with them (actually, to be honest, my goal is to do one a month! haha -- gotta be realistic here!). Here is a link to her blog if you want to join in! http://kjsstamppad.blogspot.com So here is my card using her colors --Orange and Red,and the inspiration of the pillow as shown. I used Tulip and Goldrush (from the CTMH line of inks). Hope you all like it... this will be a wedding card for a friend of mine.

I used 2 CTMH stamp sets: Decorative Dainties (C1309) to Random Stamp on the White Daisy cardstock for the background. And Butterfly Wings (D1341) for the Sentiment. It was tough to get the Random Stamping just right, so I ended up using the Masking technique (though you probably cant tell since it is mostly covered by the Sentiment -- oh well!). I also used the foam squares on the sentiment for added dimension. To see the photos a little more up close just click on the photo :)

Yay, for letting the creative juices flow!

This is so pretty- I agree the goldrush is beautiful with it. I think I just wanted to use the combination of tulip and sorbet so bad :)

You are funny when you say you will try to shoot for weekly challenges but more likely monthly participation- you hit it on the head!
