A Color Challenge – Today’s colors are rich and so pretty together as we transition from summer into autumn. And autumn comes earlier to some of us than others. Our colors are Turquoise and Orange, with White OR Ivory as your netural and as always, adding Black for a little POP is totally OK, but not required. Here’s a photo of an inviting boy’s room to get your colorful and creative juices flowing.
This is one of the bedrooms in HGTV’s Dream Home 2010. Photo was taken from this site and you may click here to to see more of the rooms nice and close up – FUN!!!

And here’s my card for today:
I used scraps to make this card — just had a notion to try that, and it worked, I think! The background blue/turquoise papers are from Peachy Keen by Kaiser, and the remaining papers are from Devonshire by Kaiser. (All papers can be seen here.) It was fun to combine papers from these 2 pads and they worked together wonderfully! The floral square and long ivory/rose strip were the scraps that I just accented with the darker orange. Some papers are just too pretty to cover, so I used it for my focal image! Doing that saves time, too!
My sentiment is Psalm 37:4 — a Plain Jane by Verve which I’m so pleased to be carrying now in The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. You may see all 20 of the verses of Scripture that I carry on this post. They sell for $3.00 each. LOVE these Plain Janes!!! I used my fav black ink for crisp, clean sentiments — VersaFine Onyx Black. The ribbon is 100% May Arts Silk and the bow is a double bow made made on the largest legs of the Bow Easy.
All items used are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. To order, just email me with your list, state/zip OR country and I’ll get back to you with an invoice.
Thanks much for dropping in again today! I love when you do. And I hope you can find time to play with us if you are so inclined! I plan to be back on Saturday with a simple card in a bit more masculine, or earthy style than I typically gravite towards – LOL!!! And I do have more new colors of Primas to show you — so hope to get that all posted on Saturday. Have a wonderful week, everyone — and hope to see you soon!
