Blogger's Challenge - Color Combo - Week 39


Hi everyone! I hope you've had a great week - it's been fun having my dd home this week on Spring Break, even if we were both sick! I'm really looking forward to Easter Sunday. I especially love being in church on Easter, celebrating our Risen Lord and Saviour! This year, my family will travel to my parents after church to have a nice relaxing Easter meal that neither me or my dh have to cook - hence the "relaxing" part! :)

Here is my post for this week's Blogger's Challenge. We had to create a project combining the colors of Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Real Red and Chocolate Chip. A while ago, I saw a card on Mercy Kerin's wonderful blog and knew immediately that I wanted to case it for this challenge. This is Mercy's original card here. (http://lordhavemercy-mercykerin.blogspot.com/2008/03/technique-lovers-challenge-158-sketch.html)
I started with a Chocolate Chip card base and stamped the large flower image from One of A Kind randomly in Choc. Chip ink for a background. Then I layered Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Real Red, stamping the small flower image from One of A Kind in Real Red for some contrast. It shows up much better in real life.
The next layers are Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip and Summer Picnic Designer paper tied off with Chocolate Chip Twill ribbon.
The sentiment is from All Holidays and was markered in Chocolate Chip and Real Red. I then layered it on Blue Bayou, added the Red rhinestone brad for bling and popped it up on dimensionals.
Yes, it's lots of layers, but so beautiful in person - well worth the weight of the cardstock. I hope you like it!
Happy Easter to everyone and remember - He is Risen, He is Risen indeed!
