KWdesigns Color Inspiration #50

Guess what we did yesterday??? I just had to share this photo first.
I didn't start playing with these color challenges until just recently and I can tell you, they are so much fun. This week is #50!
Each combo usually takes me "out of my box" because I never stopped to put those particular colors together. For this one this week, it was a real challenge to add the brown in with the other colors.

It was fun to find this adorable patterned paper by We R Memory Keepers that had most of the colors needed and to use that as my base piece.

The chipboard piece was covered with this cute woodgrain patterned paper and I accented that with Cinnamon Stickles. The birds are rub-ons by Luxe and I just rubbed them onto yellow paper. The card base is dot paper by Bo Bunny Press.

I wanted to keep real simple with this card and in order to get that brown in, my card base is brown Core'dinations cardstock. The rub-ons are also brown.
I simply cut thin, uneven strips from the other colors to finish off my color scheme.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
