Kristina's color challenge no 37

Hi all. Hope you are all enjoying the holidays. I popped onto Kristina's blog today and saw that she had her challenge up. Normally I check too late. Great timing for me. What a great color combination, baja breeze, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip, old olive and whisper white. As we do not have baja breeze here in New Zealand yet I have used tempting turquoise. I made a couple of cards for the challenge.

I think this colour combination is great for children's cards so I thought I would take the opportunity to get a head start on some cards for my nephews. This was a nice a quick card to make. I stamped the lion from wild about you onto whisper white card stock using old olive, tempting turquoise and pumpkin pie ink. I then layers each with the same coloured card then onto a layer of chocolate chip onto the tempting turquoise card.

stamp set: wild about you
card/ink: whisper white, tempting turquoise, pumpkin pie, old olive, chocolate chip

For the second card I used an old favourite bodacious bouquet. This is such a versatile set.

First I stamped two of the flowers from bodacious bouquet onto whisper white card using tempting turquoise and pumpkin pie. Then on another piece of white card I stamped leaves in each corner using old olive. The flowers have been attached then I have layered onto pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise chocolate chip, and old olive. I have stamped a flower from simply said using whisper white ink onto chocolate chip card. Then layered onto old olive. I have used old olive ribbon.
