Using color

I so love using color challenges.  Most often, they end up being colors I might not have thought to put together so they make me go out of my box a bit.  I used The Play Date Café combo.
 For this card, I turned to a set of stamps by Avery Elle. I LOVE these flowers so it is always fun to think of more ways to use them. The inks are from Clearsnap, they have such a great array of color choices.  
 One of the other things that makes this card fun is that it is a one layer card. I usually find that to be quite a challenge and it just came so naturally with the design I used. I simple stamped the flowers over and over and left a piece unstamped so I could add my sentiment there. I also used what seems to be my more "go to" supply, Liquid Pearls!!!!
Here is The Play Date Café color combination that I used.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

What a beautiful card. Love how you did the flowers and the way you used the colors. I am with you, color challenges make you play around with colors you would not normally put together. I am so happy to be sponsoring this play date cafe challenge. Stop by and say hi.
