I4U! Color Challenge #1

Happy Wednesday!

I am currently enrolled in the Inkspirations4U! Valentine and Birthday Extravaganza. I previously participated in the Fall and Christmas Editions. Each session offers 11 fully detailed, step-by-step project tutorials and bonus challenges. If you are not familiar with I4U!, you can get details here.

The first color challenge was to use Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink, and Rich Razzleberry.

I stamped the flower image, from the Because I Care set, in Certainly Celery and Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White. Pretty in Pink was sponged on the flower and Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry markers were used for a little leaf detail. The Happy Birthday sentiment and frame are from the retired Vintage Labels set. The Pretty in Pink piece of card stock was embossed with the Finial Press embossing folder. Luckily, I had some Basic Grey corduroy buttons (thank you Carla!) so I could add one to the Pretty in Pink satin ribbon.

If you are thinking that this card looks familiar, you are right. It is the same design I used for my Christmas cards.

Thanks for stopping by.
