Global Design Project 073 | Color Challenge

Last week was my first ever Global Design Project. I absolutely loved the challenge of creating something totally new and different, so I couldn't wait until Monday to see the next project. Turns out this week is a color challenge...and a difficult one for me, at that!

Now, I probably shouldn't admit this but I wasn't exactly thrilled when I saw this color combination. These are not colors I would normally use together, so I had a really tough time getting inspired at first. I pondered the colors throughout the week, and headed straight up to my stamp room this morning to get creative. is my big reveal:

I am so. in. love. with this card!! I knew that I really wanted the colors to pop with this card, so I used crisp Whisper White for my card base and card front. The thin layer of Watermelon Wonder really helps draw your attention to that swirly flower - which is exactly the effect I was going for. To tone down the Emerald Envy a bit, I stamped off before stamping those leaves - again from the Swirly Bird stamp set. Then cut down a dimensional to use to pop up the Watermelon Wonder layer of that flower above the stamped image.

I added that little butterfly in Daffodil Delight to compliment the Thank You sentiment. It's from the Sunshine Wishes thinlets - which is one of my very favorites in the big catalog.

I used Rhinestone Jewels to add just a touch of "bling" to this card - I thought it needed some sparkle! A few flicks of the Watermelon Wonder marker helped balance out the white space behind that cute butterfly, don't you think?

I couldn't be happier with the result of this Global Design Project. I am so excited that I was able to head into unfamiliar creative territory and craft this beautiful card!
