A Season Full of Bountiful Blessings

This is my second post...it's just a short 
scroll down for embossing with CAS-ual Fridays.

I think that the colors at this week's colourQ challenge are about the strangest group of colors that I have ever seen.  Who puts Cameo with Burgundy or, even worse, Starfruit with Saffron?  Admittedly, the blouse in the photo is cute...but this is still a seriously odd combination.  (Sorry, Arielle!!!)


But somehow it still got my creative juices flowing.  I saw a beautiful sentiment in the burgundy, surrounded by simple flowers or silhouettes.  I checked out the sketch from splitcoaststampers and thought it could all work - as long as I kept a lot of white to offset the colors!!

Season of Blessings



I like it!  Thank you to colourQ for the challenge!!

LOL, I am glad I am not the only one who thought this was an unusual combination!!! But you did manage to create a beautiful card with them!

Jen said...

Hallelujah! I thought that LeAnne and I were the only ones who thought this color combo was out of the box strange! The two of you managed to do the challenge proud, while I was forced to resort to the old layered butterfly trick! LOL!
