More emerging color...Marjorie's Challenge

A CTMH Consultant named Marjorie (check out her blog -- she's Mommy Scraps under my links to the left -- and she has got to be one of the most gifted card-makers I've ever seen!) posted a color challenge this week on our boards, and I thought I'd try emerging color again using her challenge colors. Now since I didn't have all of her challenge colors, I improvised a little. Can I just say that I am loving this emerging color thing? It's so much fun! And you get a sneak peak at the March Stamp of the Month! Sara and Marjorie -- I think you created a monster! ;)




Paper: White daisy CS, Amethyst

Stamp Sets: Simple Beauty (March 2008 Stamp of the Month), Delight in Everything

Ink colors: Petal, Lilac Beauty, Sweet Leaf, Buttercup

Accessories: White organdy ribbon (I intentionally went light on accessories because in person the colors are so much for vibrant....I didn't want to take away from anything.)

Okay, so practice makes perfect...this one is better than the last I think!

Blessings!
