Color challenges can be tons of fun when you really love the colors, and that's what I thought when I saw the Color Throwdown Challenge this week.
Here's my card for the challenge:
I used some retired Stampin' Up! patterned paper combined with Bermuda Bay cardstock I stamped to add a little sunny-like pattern (although the sunny circles are actually cogs from the Clockworks stamp set).
Tiny imperfections on my stamping that I did on the Bermuda cardstock I hid with stamped cogs that were punched with a small circle then positioned on top of my "boo-boo's" on the Bermuda Bay sections of the slanting sunburst pattern. I am surprisingly pleased with the effect of my unintended embellishments.
I placed the slant cut scraps on a background of sandy Crumb Cake and added a little Crumb Cake & Bermuda Bay ribbon, 'cuz a card just isn't finished without a little extra ribbon embellishment (right?). The cheerful sentiment is from SU! Pursuit of Happiness set.
Have a sunny, summery weekend, everyone!
