So KWerner posted Color Inspiration Challenge #56 which included some beautiful and bright colors. I was so inspired that I made two different cards. Look back later for another post with the same color scheme. Visit her site here to check out this and many other color inspirations... http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/
Next I went to a new favorite blog/website to find a simple yet great layout. 2 Sketches 4 You gives amazing layout ideas. Not only that but the examples you see there are amazing. Very talented stampers! This is Sketch #30. Take a look at their site here. http://www.2sketches4you.blogspot.com/
Here's my take on both the colors and layout put together. I think my problem, if you can call it that, is that when I do color challenges I always feel like I need to use all the given colors in CS. I forget that the stamp or embelishments can use the colors too. Hopefully you don't think this card has too much going on. I think the layout minimalized what could have been a disaster card.
