Color challenges galore

I found two color challenges that made me bring out more papers and stamps.

Here is a glimpse of the first challenge.

 It is the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger for this week.  This challenge isn't really all about the colors but I did pull them out for my card.
 I knew I wanted to do something with that yummy blue gingham and I remembered how much I love stamping a gingham pattern. I used some hearts by Wplus9 Designs and an embossing folder by Sizzix.  I love the simple, stunning contrast of the gingham ribbon and that great white embossed paper.

 Next up is the Colour Q combo.  This piece just says SPRING!
I also used a sketch from Freshly Made, I just turned it on it's side.

I used a digital stamp by A Day for Daisies.  It was simply printed on white cardstock and then colorsed with Copic markers.
 It is a little hard to see in the photo, but I added some Glossy Accents to the top lip of each bottle to help them look like glass. The letters are new to me stickers that I found at Michael's.
Here is a good view of the colors and shading on the flowers and leaves.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Oh Linda, I LOVE your take on the trigger challenge - so pretty! I too was taken by the blue with the textured white background such a wonderful clean combination!

The other card is so simple and I loved that you accent the lip with GA. What a clever touch!

TFS both cards :)
