WOJ Challenge #32...Brown and Blue!



Hello Everyone!

After a restful weekend, I really was in the mood to create a few cards. I can't speak for everyone else, but there are times when I have to back away from the craft table and simply clear my head.

While looking for different sketches, challenges and inspiration, I decided to make a card for WOJ's color challenge....brown and blue! This color combination isn't a particular favorite of mine, but once my card came together, I was rather pleased with the results.



Originally, my ribbon was blue but that did not work for me at all. I removed the blue ribbon and replaced it with this sheer ribbon from Flourishes and I loved it. Initially I had wanted to incorporate more hints of blue embellishments, but I decided that the blue smock,pants and umbrella were enough and met the challenge requirements.

Card Details...................
stamp WOJ (Willow with Umbrella ), sentiment is from a scrapbook kit, c/s SU and Neenah Solar White 80#, DP by SU, Nesties oval dies, Copic Markers, Swiss Dots embossing folder, paper pierce tool,ribbon, half pearls and Prima Flowers

Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!

hugs

Hey Risa!! Such a pretty card! The dp that you used compliments your image so beautifully. . .especially the colors!

I'm the same way. . .I sometimes just need to step away and do other things. It makes me appreciate crafting more when I haven't done so for several days! Life has to be balanced for it to be enjoyable!!

Lovely, lovely card, Risa. If you look around, you'll notice a lot of this color combo around now a days. I like the blue scallops against the brown bg. The blue umbrella is lovely as well.
