All That Scraps ...Color Challenge!


Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!
Today is definitely "hump day" for me because I three challenges to post. Here is the first of three. Sit back relax and I hope you enjoy!
Moving right along with my trio of Wednesday challenges, All That Scraps wants you to get creative with Chocolate, Kraft and Aqua!

I tossed around a few ideas and settled on using the Kraft card stock as my card base. I complimented the Kraft with Chocolate card stock and a mixture of designer paper. My layout is rather simple and features Fairy Tales Cupcake Belle.



Cupcake Belle is colored in with Copic Markers and her cupcake topping and candle flame are embellished with Stickles. I really love the contrasting colors of aqua and chocolate, the colors compliment each other beautifully and I plan on using this color combination again and again!
