Make-it-Monday Color Challenge Take 2

Hi there!  I'm back with another take on this week's Make-it-Monday Challenge on Nichole Heady's blog.  This time, I decided to use one of my own photos for my color inspiration.  I was in Target the other day when I ran into this collection of gift wrapping.  I instantly fell in love with the color combo.

I took this photo several weeks ago and have had it in my mind ever since.  Now, I have to admit that when I started my project I had this photo in mind, but I didn't actualy have the picture in front of me.  I chose the colors below strictly from "memory".  I now realize that they were definitely off, and I plan to do another project that will hopefully more closely reflect the colors in my inspiration. 

So without further ado, here are the colors for THIS project:

Perfect Match Canyon Clay - Refill (.5 oz) Papertrey Ink Felt - Pure Poppy Perfect Match Berry Sorbet - Refill (.5 oz) Perfect Match Enchanted Evening - Cube

And drum roll please.....ta da!

I'm really pleased with how the card came out, and I am really pleased with the color combo even if it doesn't exactly match the inspiration.  It's still a good combo, right?

The flowers were made with one of the tie stamps from the World's Greatest set and then hand cut.  Super simple and super cute!

Thanks for visiting!  I'm off to create some more!  I'm so inspired!

  1. Fab pairing of a dramatic and energetic color combo with an equally wonderful sentiment! Great use of the tie stamp too!

  2. With so many choices, it never dawned on me to come up with my own color inspiration! Great idea-I need to take more pictures when I see something inspiring. Your card is so bold AND FUN! Very clever use of the ties stamp. Your sentiment and design fit together perfectly!

  3. I am WOWed by your card!!! The colors, the ingenious flowers, the layout are all fabulous.

  4. I love your card! I am laughing hysterically, however, because I took almost this exact same picture in Target last week of this same gift wrapping for color inspiration! Great Minds! Great card!

  5. Another fabulous card! Your blog is FULL of them! Just love how you used the tie stamp!!!
