Color Inspiration #53











This week I was determined to get my card done for the color inspiration in time to post it. When I checked in to get the colors I was less certain about it. The colors this week are so not me. You know how colors just don't work well for you. Yellow is that color for me. I hardly ever use yellow and its only use is generally in very small amounts for centers of flowers etc. But I'm determined to do some more challenges so I took a sample of all the cardstock colors and laid them out in front of me. For a while they didn't speak to me and I thought I'd have to miss this week. But in the end primary colors spoke little boy and a little boy card was born.
The colors are Sunny Yellow, Holiday Red, Dutch Blue, Black and White Daisy - all CTMH. The stamps used are C1256 Little Boys (retired) and D1300 Circle Around - both CTMH. I stamped and edged both the Holiday Red and Dutch Blue pieces with images and then sanded the edges gently. Originally I didn't have the black photo hangers but the card was missing something so I added this and the piece of blue ribbon - who says ribbon isn't for boys!

So here it is - not sure when I'll use as I don't have much use for cards for little boys at the moment but you never know.

It's awesome that you embraced a color that you don't usually use and boldly made it your base for your card. It turned out really nicely! Who knows, maybe you just found your new favorite color. ;)
