Dawn McVey's Color Challenge...


I am on a role... my second post of the day! I had a little time this afternoon to make a card. I know, I know, I should have been napping along with the rest of the family, but I was excited about Dawn's Favorite Color Challenge that PTI is hosting so I had to make something. Dawn's use of color is amazing; she often puts colors together that I would never have dared to use. I really envy her sense of color adventure!

This is one of my favorite color combos from Dawn's cards over the past week. I used this card as my guide, and can't tell you how much I love this color combo. The colors I used are Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, and since I don't have Raspberry Fizz or New Leaf I found some comparable colors in my stash with some pink paper and Martha Stewart Ribbon from last year. I love green, so that New Leaf is definitely on my list!

The flowers and buttons are all from various Making Memories collections, green from 5th Avenue, the pink button from the Lemonade Collection, cream flower from Noteworthy - I was grabbing stuff from everywhere! This is why I love Papertrey's newest additions, it all matches perfectly - hence the name "Perect Match." :-)

I hope you enjoyed another creation today. Now I need to go clean my desk, what a mess!!! I hope to check out the PTI forum release party for a little while before heading off to bed.

I hope you had a fabulous day!
