A color challenge at H2H!

This week over at H2H we are working with the following colors:


Yep, these colors were a little bit of a challenge. When I first thought up the combination I was so excited about it and then when I sat down and started to create, I drew a blank! Of course, part of the problem may have been the pain I was in from all the yardwork I've done the last gew days - that might have been blocking the color mojo! But I finally found something that I think works - what do you think?

So many fun things included in this card! First I stamped two of the images from the Togetherness set onto Topiary and Ocean cardstock with Clear ink and then embossed with White ep. I scored some lines on the Desert Sand cardstock and lightly sanded to bring out some of the white core. I also stamped a background with an older retired set - Argyle Backgrounds (which is one of the sets I have up for sale - see my sale page). The Ocean borders were punched with a new EK Success border punch - also called Argyle. And the sentiment is from the set Treasures. A tied button as the flower center finishes the card.

Are you ready to play along? If you don't have these exact colors, just choose something close. Create your item and then link it up over at the challenge blog. Remember your artwork must include mostly Close To My Heart products! You might just be chosen one of our Friday Five members!

Until next time - have a creative day!
