The Cupcake Craft challenge this week is a sketch and this is the one where I'm not quite sure my card fits right. The sketch is below. The image is a bit too big and my circle is a bit too small so I kind of rearranged a bit. I'm submitting anyway because I was trying and I think it's close.
This week is the first Simon Says Stamp Challenge. The theme for their first challenge is yellow and green. I will tell you right off the bat that this is my most dreaded color combination. I usually go out of my way to avoid it. So I thought that was a good reason to give it a shot. I'm not sure why I'm afraid of this combination. I think it's because of the bedroom I had when I was about 10. This was 1974 and it was very bright yellow and very bright green. So every time I put these two colors together that's what I see. For this card, I tried to keep the tones a little softer and the image helped bring them together for me too.
The final challenge for this card is today's Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The challenge this week is to use citrus colors. As soon as I saw the challenge I knew what image I had to use.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon!
