Totally Hues #4

Rats, I missed the challenge deadline by a few hours! Oh well, it was still a great color challenge that I enjoyed doing. Guess I need to pay more attention to deadlines next time ;)

And here is my creation with those colors:

I also made a little treat bag to go along with the card. That's a Recee's Egg sticking out.

And the card and treat bag together:

I am loving these color challenges, they make me step out of my comfort zone and try bold, bright colors that I normally wouldn't have tried together, and I love the result! I don't use purple that often, but after using it, I may have to succumb to it more often, it is such a pretty color, and the other 3 colors truly set it off. The adorable stamp set is a Darcie's set that I got at the Black Friday sale at a local stamp store, but had just never gotten around to using (it also wasn't spring yet....although today it does NOT look like spring outside, it snowed last night and it is white everywhere!) The ribbon and buttons are from SU in addition to the scallop border punch. All paper is PTI and ink SU. The grass punch is Martha Stewart.

I made this card for a new member of the local women's volunteer group I'm a part of. We "senior" members all get assigned a "little sis" to help along and make sure she doesn't fall through the cracks. So I thought it would be nice to welcome her with a card and a little treat and let her know that if she plants her seed in our organization, she can certainly bloom and grow ;)


  1. This is such an adorable set! I can't get over that cute rainboot and fantastic sentiment. Just the cheerful sort of card I needed to see on a snowy April day!

  2. Super cute, Jess!!!!! I love those colors together. You always have the most fantastic color combinations!

    Be sure to check my post tonight - I've got something special for you there! ;)
