Color Challenge!

So today I decided to give myself a color challenge using the Color Coach.    The colors I chose were – Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip.

So first let me say the inspiration for this card was from this video by Brandy Cox showing how to do a Braided card. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LEU7Hzgb2I (copy and paste in your browser to watch the video)

When I saw this braided card all I could think of was flowers on a vine.  So I grabbed my Color Coach and the Best of Flowers flower set  and got started.  So here’s the card!

So I have to say this card was a  challenge and honestly wasn’t my favorite.  MD loved it, but something about it didn’t seem to make me happy.  However I wanted to show it to you so you could see that not all challenges work how you think they will.

I used a piece of Festival of Prints from the retired 2012 Holiday catalog and the Eyelet border punch for the border.  I used the oval designer frame and the Extra Large oval punch for the frame around the flower stamp.  I stamped the side of the Pretty in Pink piece using the Best of Flowers stamp set with Chocolate Chip.  I stamped off so the chocolate color wouldn’t be so strong and take away from the main flower.

Again, this isn’t my favorite card, but I liked that I was able to use the color challenge I gave to myself. I hope this idea helps you to challenge yourself and if you don’t have the Color Coach – which is a must for me!

Have a Magical Day!
