Bella Twisted Challenge #8

This week Hope gave us a color challenge to use. Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral and Tempting Turquoise were the assigned colors. When I first saw the challenge I thought I don't know if I can make these colors work together. I am a very basic color combo kind of person. The SU color wheel is my friend. LOL! I refer to it often; not that it always helps. I'm actually kind of pleased at how well I was able to work with the assigned colors.

I think the purse and shoe actually turned out ok. Again, most of my shoes are black and my purses are of a solid color and may change with the season. The idea of having a bright colorful purse and matching shoes is neat, I just don't know if I could bring myself to use them.

Love the bright cheery colors everyone uses and I maybe should try some of the color challenges to get me to open up my mind. Occasionally I'll look at the nurses' scrubs at work and think "Wow what a great color combo" only to go home and revert back to my boring self.

How do you come up with your color combinations and choice of DSP?

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, it is absolutely spectacular here.

Such a cute card! Great job with the color challenge.

I've been meaning to get back to you on everything...sorry I'm slow. :)

The letters I used for "inspire" are Thicker stickers that are made by American Crafts. They come in all different fonts and colors. These happened to be naked chipboard, so I just used a sponge dabber and colored them chocolate chip to match my project.

The glitter on my cards is Stickles. There are tons of different clear/white ones, and the one I used is called Crystal. It has the smallest flecks of glitter than the other ones.

The game was still fun though we lost. Seattle has never been really good, I'm use to it. We got to use our Corporate tickets, so it was nice to have good seats and a free game! :) Hope your weekend is going well.
