Red and Turquoise?

Red and Turquoise?
Ugh...

...yep, that's what I thought too!
This is the color challenge at Stamp TV this week.
After watching Gina's video...
...peeking in on what cards were already in the gallery
...checking out Gina's amazing design teams cards...
I decided I literally HAD to try this challenge! And I am SO happy I did! These colors are so wicked-cool together!!! Anyway, enough of the blah, blah, blah, this morning!

Here is my card:

(it's very dark and dreary here today, so the photo is dark and dreary too - sorry!)



All coloring is with copics, gold and frost stickles were added for a touch of yummy sparkle, and I stamped the poinsettia's twice, cutting out only some of the petals and curling their edges before adhering them with pop dots.


Hope these colors made YOU smile!


Have a great Saturday -
I was up cooking a hunter's breakfast before 4 a.m. today.
Now I'm off to check out our local craft fair, and then have 'busy' work, errands, and paperwork for DH while he's checking out the squirrels, birds, napping spots, etc., in the woods today!
I'm hoping to squeeze in a baby shower, so must run!!!


Hugs and blessings,

Patti J.

How pretty these colors are together and your coloring is fantastic - what are you talking about "classes to learn how to use copics"!!! Well you didn't make it to the craft bazaar - and hope you are not on the road. We did just fair - probably broke even maybe!!

I was with you when you first mentioned the color combo! Ewwwwwwwwww But then, when I saw your card it totally changed my mind! Wow, what a beautiful combo and what a beautiful card. I can honestly say that I would not have done well with this combo, but you did an exceptional job! Best, Curt
