Color Cue 16

***If you're looking for my's right here.***

Hi friends! Every 15th of the month, we have a wonderful color challenge for everyone over at the WPlus9 Design Studio Blog. Even before I became a member of the WPlus9 Design Team, I've always loved joining this color challenge. And nothing has changed since. I might have missed one or two because of other DT projects, but I try my best to join every month. Besides you have ALL month to make a card! So what are you waiting for?! :)

Here's this month's color combo: it might be a toughie for some of us...but that's why they call it a challenge! lol! If everything was easy, what fun would that be? Here's my card for my first ever Color Cue Color Challenge as a DT member! :) Color Cue 16.

I used my favorite stamp set for this card. Flora and Fauna. It's absolutely beautiful. I stamped two images and fussy cut the top and bottom flowers so that I could layer them with foam tape. I think doing that gives it so much more depth and interest. I also colored the flowers using chalk ink and a blender pen. I used sage, but sadly it's not too obvious here. 

The lovely patterned paper is Wisteria from Basic Gray. When I saw the plum and aqua flowers on it, I grabbed it immediately. I was a little stumped before...but when I saw this patterned paper I knew what I wanted to do immediately. Of course I still had no idea how I was going to incorporate the red in there. lol! But this baker's twine was a wonderful addition and a great pop of color. I hope you're liking this card...head on over to the other WPlus9 girls for more inspiration. :)
