Color Challenge

The October challenge at the DeNami Design blog is a color challenge.


I always seem to struggle when I am given specific colors to use.  Once I decided on a design for the card, it finally came together for me.


I used Round Leafy Tree and stamped it using Crumb Cake ink from Stampin' Up!.  I used Crystal Lacquer and applied glitter to the leaves of the tree.  I used Labels 18 from Spellbinders to cut out the image and the mat.   I popped up the image layer off of the mat using some foam scraps left from trimming stamps.

Edited to add:  Apparently, I was super inspired by Lisa's card on the DeNami Blog!  When I went to link my card, I realized our trees were very similar! 

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
Spellbinders Label 18 # 3 & # 4
Stampin' Up! Texturz plates-Flourish
Stampin' Up! Pinking Hearts border punch
Martha Stewart Glitter-Brownstone, Fire Opal, Verdelite
American Crafts pearl brad
Paper Studio Spare Parts button brads
seam binding from my stash
