Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 65}

This is my second post of the day so if you would like to see some more felt scroll down to my first post! I had to squeeze this challenge in this week so, here I am...sliding by!

I loved this color combo and it wanted to take me down....I won't tell you how many tries it took! But today I was successful!

Here is my card...

This card made me think of Christina, because she is always using bright colors so well! I feel like sometimes I can only use 1 or 2 colors at a time!  This is definitley a fun combo!!
That ribbon and the sentiment were the best blue I could find! I know it's a little light but I don't have a good blue ink or paper really! I colored the sentiment with a marker and the ribbon is also Copically altered! I recently bought ALOT of that seam binding so yes Dana....it will last me FOR-ev-A! LOL!

The stamp is a little $1 set I found at Joann's years ago! I knew I had to pull it out eventually! So glad I did!

Here is Stacey's yummy combo for the week....



Thanks for coming by this evening!



OH...One more thing....stop back by on January 25th for a little snowman goodness! Me and some friends are all getting together to bring you some serious snowmen!!


Have a great weekend!!

Great use of the colors! I like that little bit of scallop that is showing! The PD background is super cute too! And, I LOVE the font you used for your name...have to know what that one is!

Yay, you made it! You did an awesome job with these colors! This is just a great design and nice use of white space. And thanks for thinking of me--you're so sweet!

Amy said...

Beautiful card! Love the bright colors! The pictures of your cards are always so great - do you use only natural light?

You know what you need to drive around in my lime green beetle after making such a freaking cute card like that ....... and maybe listen to a bit of B52's :) I love this and the colors and still there is white space that makes it even more bright and fun!!! LOVE IT!!! I will be back on the 25th young lady ....... but I hope you give me something to drool over before that!!!

Adorable card and I love the combo. It's a little spot of brightness in this gloomy winter weather!! Going to have to go buy me some seam binding. I thought I had loads from my days of sewing but guess I used it all!!!
