An Over The Rainbow Color Challenge...

Another one-day challenge from PTI...When I first saw these colors this morning, I was seriously intimidated! I make it a rule to pretty much never use more than three colors, so when Nichole posted these four and possibly more, I was stumped. Good thing I had all day to think about it. I even dreamed about color this afternoon during my nap - he-he!

Anyone else feeling that dreaded cold coming on? My kids were so sweet, they came down from their nap and went back to their rooms to play to let me sleep, I guess they knew I needed it. Could have been the mommy rage prior to their naps that clued them in!

Well by this evening I had quite a few ideas, but not a whole lot of time. This made me think out of my comfort zone - that is precisely what a challenge is for right!

I wrote out this sketch many months ago, when Alli Miles made a similar card. Can't seem to find that card at the moment, like I said it was many months ago, but I will try tomorrow when I have more time. I thought it would be perfect for these colors.

Super easy card, almost no stamping at all, but all the colors are there! Ribbon, buttons, embroidery floss and a sewing machine and you have yourself a card! If I could crank out cards as fast as this one, I would be a very happy stamper!

I hope you are enjoying these challenges as much as I am. It's getting me out of my creative funk!

I am inspired to use these colors again and my kids are fast asleep...

Have a fabulous night!
