Creative Crew - January Color Focus


Here is the info on the Holiday Focus if you would like to join us on this challenge:
CCREW112DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM – Color Focus: Use a color combination that you’ve never used before. Make your card with this color combo using the attached sketch.
Just upload your projects to the splitcoast gallery be sure to use keywords above that are in blue.



I love this card ... mostly because it's different then what I normally do. I'm not big on using pastels and figured I would start there when picking a color combo I haven't used before so I went with Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette and Old Olive. At first everything I tried to do with the sketch wasn't working out ... mostly because I DO NOT play well with sketches!! I can start with a sketch and my card at the end never resembles it; I have this thing with being different. Probably why I don't rarely CASE. Even when I get together with friends I always always have to change it up ... drives everyone else crazy. Anyways I finally after several attempts made a card that actually looked like the sketch. I added some of the pleated blushing bride ribbon from the new mini and button as they coordinated just enough, in the picture it stands out a bit more than in real life. Happy Stamping!!

Beautiful card! I love the color combination and how you used the button. I will be CASEing this myself today! Well at least the colors and the design. But I don't have that stamp set so I'll mix it up too!

You've extended yourself in such a good way! I especially like the button with the half circle it's tucked into!

Love everything about this card, but especially how you punched a notch for the button. So cute!

Holy Cow, Carmen! This card is fabulous! For someone who doesn't work with pastels often, you found a way to make this one work; and work beautifully!

OK, that is one of my favorite stamp sets right now, and I love how it coordinates with the embossing folder, and the little partial circle punch around the button!!
