Color Challenge! My favorite! This week there is a great color challenge over at Try Stampin; on Tuesday. I used the Hanging Garden stamp set to create my sample for that challenge.Here’s my card and the color challenge inspiration.

Well, I love this color combination – Fresh Fig, Old Olive and Sweet Sugarplum. I decided to combine those colors with the beautiful Hanging Garden stamp set. For this card, I used the Watercolor Pencils to color in the flowers and butterflies. The leaves came from the Leaf Punch. I began to assemble the card and felt it needed a few things. First, I decided to round the corners of the Sweet Sugarplum piece with the Envelope Punch Board. Next I added a few leaves. Hummmmm. still something missing. Should I emboss the Fresh Fig layer? Should I add some stmping to that layer? What about – wait, I still have some of the Naturally Eclectic Card Overlays.! Eureka!
