Starfruit Surprise

The other day I was at one of many doctor visits flipping thru a magazine and there I found pictures after pictures with color combinations of Summer Starfruit, Black, white and either Gray or Crumb Cake.  I quickly came home and pulled together an awesome card.

I made this thank you card for a parent who came to my Troop meeting to teach the scouts about transforming art from paper to actual figurines.  He created these great stories with his Travelin Bugz.   Here’s his site: http://www.travlinbugz.com/

I made this card using Sycamore Street paper from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  The sentiment was stamped using the Kindness matters stamp set.  I finally watched enough videos to figure out how to make a matt using punches.

I’m still not sure Summer Starfruit has become a favorite yet, but the combination is interesting. I’m just happy I stepped outside my color combo box! How about you??

Have a Magical Day!

    Admitting your not sure of the color is the first step..
    Using the color is the second step! You are on your way to loving Summer Starfruit. Just don’t give up.
    (I have a feeling the new Smokey Slate will be a perfect combo with this!!)

A bit of this. A bit of that.
