And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Rose Collage

Hello stamping friends...happy Friday!  I have a very quick post to share with you today.


Do you find yourself reaching for the same colors when making your cards?  I know I do...especially those pinks and greens.  That's why I love color challenges...they stretch me out of my comfort zone. 





I discovered a new color challenge site that I will be visiting again for inspiration... CR84FN.  The colors this week were Kraft, Yellow, and Gray...a combination I would have never put together on my own.  




Here is my CR84FN49 sample card.


Creative Nugget:  Sweet 'n Sassy's beautiful Rose Collage clear stamp set was used for the focal image...LOVE!  The image was colored with copic markers and die cut with a square nestie.  A Labels Twenty die was cut from Kraft and Black.  These were cut in half and layered so that they framed the top and bottom of the main panel.  The striped DP was cut into fourths and layered on Black, Lemon Tart, and a Kraft card base.  Stitching, pearls, and some yellow striped ribbon from my stash were added to complete the card.


Look around the blogosphere for colors that will stretch you and give those combinations a try...you might just love the results!


Have a grand day!  Thanks for stopping by!


Hugs,
Cathymac
