An Anniversary Challenge

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

The other day I discovered a new (to me) challenge blog.  It's called Picture Perfect Creations and I decided to give it a try.  The challenge this week was a color challenge with an anniversary theme.

I really liked the colors, but I hesitated joining the challenge at first because after an extensive search of my stamp sets, I realized that I didn't have an anniversary one!  I finally found one that I thought would be an appropriate sentiment and along with the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge this week, I set to work.

I found this sketch a little intimidating at first, but once I had a chance to take a good look at it, I was able to break down the elements of it into manageable pieces!

I love Basic Gray (which is what attracted me to this color challenge to begin with), and when paired with a bright color like Melon Mambo I'm helpless to resist!  I'm also gaining a new appreciation for Garden Green.  I've not used it very much, but it's really a very nice color and makes an excellent stem!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
