Jaron's Color Challenge

Here's my next two-challenges-with-one-stone card! Kind of a strange color combo for a wedding card, but I was feeling daring! Here are the colors for Jaron's Color Combination Creative Challenge #1.


And I used the sketch from clean&simple Fall-to Layout #39. My first attempt at making a card with these colors was just NOT working because I was trying too hard again to come up with my own layout.


I'm still trying to figure out the best lighting for my pictures, and I swear the base is Taken with Teal, even though it looks more like Tempting Turquoise. :(


This was the first time I finally used my Pretties Kit and now I am hooked! I'm such a dork. I have soooo many supplies and accessories that have never been touched because I am too intimidated or lazy to figure out how to use them! Anyway, with this flower I used the Aqua Painter and Soft Sky ink refill to dye it.


Also, I originally wanted to use the Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon for the strip under the flower, but the shade didn't quite match the Old Olive cardstock. So I used textured cardstock instead!

And for a final touch, I stamped a sentiment inside and a little heart from You & Moi in Taken with Teal on the envelope.


I'm hoping to post at least one more today... do you think my dog will leave me alone long enough to make that a reality??? We'll find out!
