SSSC121 and Color Dare 104

Monday, June 13, 2011

This week the color challenge at The Color Dare is very unusual.  The challenge was to use Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and Cajun Craze.  I had to think long and hard about this one, and I'm still not sure about what I came up with.  I decided on the Sweet Sunday sketch for my layout.

Once again, I did quite a bit of waffling about what I wanted my stamped image to be.  At first I was going to use one of the animals from the Fox & Friends stamp set, but that would have made the card a little kid-friendly and I just don't have any kid-friendly sentiments.  So, I went the butterfly route.

I think the circle is too big and would have looked quite a bit better if I had some Cajun Craze dp.  Despite all the things I don't like about this card, I do think the colors are really great together.  And I took a little liberty with the ribbon.  It's actually some left-over Dusty Durango, but the color is really close to Cajun Craze.

Thanks for stopping by!
