BC194 Color Challenge
Hello and welcome to the first BC Challenge of the New Year. For this challenge we were to use the colors:
Brown, Green and Yellow.
I started to panic a little when I couldn't locate any DP with those 3 colors in it. However I persevered and came up with this card.
My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with Pear Pizzazz and some DP from Cosmo Cricket (DeLovely) line. A favorite of mine from last year. I added a border of Daffodil Delight punched with an EK Success punch (Daisy Scallop).
The focal piece was already stamped and colored and laying in a box of "project" hopefuls. You know stuff you start but never quite get to a card but you hate to throw it out because you never know when it might come in handy. Yep, it came in handy.
The stamp is from a retired SU set: Sun Ripened II - It was stamped with Basic Brown ink on Very Vanilla cs and colored with markers. It was crumpled and spritzed with homemade shimmer spray and dusted with some Aztec Gold Powder as well. I added some Brown Twill ribbon, 3 brown brads and the sentiment from Mint Motif (Very Square Sentiments).
I really like how this turned out and am happy to have used up one of my scrap "hopefuls."

Hope the start of 2011 is going well for you.
