Color Me Beautiful! Challenge

Hello friends!  I'm back to show you another card I made for another cool challenge blog!  It's called Color Me Beautiful! and I first learned about it from our exclusive website just for Stampin' Up! demos. The Challenge this week is called Aubergine Dream, doesn't it sound dreamy? Just saying it makes you feel as if you are somewhere else, say it again, Aubergine Dream. 

Okay, so the challenge was to use at least three of the colors in your design and I chose to use all four.

Now when I first saw the colors, right away I had an idea in my head of how I was going to use the colors.  But somehow I think the idea seemed better in my head than in the implementation.  Does that ever happen to you?  Anyhow, this is my end result and I like it. I used the new stamp set called "A Fitting Occasion". 

It actually didn't take too much time to make, but then again, when you're dealing with paper crafters, especially me, time doesn't matter when it comes to creating.  Hope you had a wonderful day!

Thanks for stopping by!

OMG, I almost forgot, I was so happy when I saw that Jackie Bowman is one of the design team members for Color Me Beautiful! HI JACKIE! I met Jackie last July 2011 at my first Stampin' Up! Convention during Hispanic Night and she and I sat together and worked on a project!  I saw her again this past July at convention and she is such a sweet heart! I love all the great friendships I've made with Stampin' Up!
