Today’s challenge over at Heart 2 Heart challenges is all about color. This can be interpreted in so many different ways! You can choose to use your own favorite color or color combo, you can use all of them, you can take inspiration from somewhere else, nature, pinterest, other challenges, photos, and so much more, including the CTMH Love of Color Book. Inspiration is everywhere! Today I grabbed a little from here, and a little from there.
So, along with the H2H challenge, I am playing along with Fusion and Color Throwdown! I knew I wanted to play with the sapphire color, and Color Throwdown happened to have a dark blue, Green, and Grey color palette for this week’s challenge . . . how perfect! Over at Fusion, they have a sketch or a photo that you can take inspiration from. Their photo this week is some adorable Penguins, and I’m telling you, if I had the Hostess only stamp set, “Got Snow?” . . . I would totally be using a super cute penguin on my card today! However, that is not one that I have (but I wish I did!), so I couldn’t use it.
Now, the colors that I use are partially one of the color suggestions in the Love of Color book, there are more options in the palette that they suggest, but I wanted to stick with the few for the throwdown challenge! These are very traditional ‘boy’ colors, but it just popped so well!!
This card is mostly plain cardstock, I almost think I should have done a bit of background stamping on the pewter cardstock, but it looks ok anyway! The sentiment is in the cut-aparts from the Something Fierce paper pack, and the banners are scrap pieces that I have had leftover from other projects using this same paper pack!
I love how simply this fun card came together! Tell me what you think of it? If you had this card, who would YOU give it to?
