H2H Color Challenge ~ Bamboo, Barn Red, Any Blue




This week over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog it's a color challenge.  You are to use Bamboo, Barn Red, and your choice of Blue... I chose to use Crystal Blue on my card.

I wouldn't normally grab these colours to use together, so it was a challenge that I had to think about for a while before I tackled it.  I chose to use the brighter colours sparingly, toning them down with the Bamboo, Colonial White and a little Black.

The front sentiment reads "A true friend remembers your birthday..." and the inside says "but not your age.  Happy Birthday!"

I like how it turned out and I hope you do too!


Check back later for another post.  I also created a card for the Mojo Monday challenge, too.

Happy creating!  :)

Love your beautiful card. I miss this stamp set. I don't keep retired stamp sets so I'm always excited to see something made with those stamps that went bye bye. Thanks for sharing at H2H!

What a beautiful card. I love how you can just barely see the script through the flower petals. It reminds me of stained glass. TFS.
