CR84FN Color Challenge #51


It's time to play with the colour challenge over at CR84FN!  I have not played for a while which is really a shame because they do have some awesome color challenges, and I love that it's only 3 colors, that's about the max I can handle!  Here is what I made.



I pulled out a very, very old piece of patterned paper for the pink layer, so I have no idea who the manufacturer is and it was purchased in South Africa.  The peach layer is made using some PTI card stock on which I stamped the PTI Houndstooth in Versamark and heat embossed.

The light blue layer is once again some very old paper from way back when.  The sentiment is from WPlus9.  That rose bud is from a PTI Year in Flowers set which is inked up with some distress inks.  It took me a while, but eventually I decided that I liked it!  I would never dream of combining those colors together, but actually, they don't look too bad. 

I did get the idea for this layout from a card in the Papercrafts Magazine called 365 Cards ( an older issue). I liked this sketch so much that I actually used it for my card which I posted on Sunday.

Wishing you the most fabulous day!

Pretty design, Brenda! I have decided 3 colors is all I can handle too. It's too much of a struggle after that. Happy Easter to you and your family!
