Color Challenge Today!


Today's Clearly Inspired color challenge definitely tested my mojo!! The colors to use are Cherry Go Round, Lime Juice and Bee Pollen from Clear Dollar's new Clearly Coordinating Collection, and, as I have a *really* hard time with bright colors, it took two cards before I did one I wasn't embarrassed to show you!! :-)

I used the With Thanksgiving set and the Plumes and Blooms set from Clear Dollar Stamps, and I *really* like how the focal piece turned out. I would definitely try that again. I stamped the plume while the image was still in the nestibilities die, so it left the edges white. So pretty!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely weekend, and I hope you'll join us for the challenge!! :-)
