Create For Fun Color Challenge 50

 

I've been looking at this challenge for a while and finally decided to jump in and play along.  The challenge is called CR84FN (Create for Fun) and is a color challenge.  This week the challenge is to create a card using the colors pink, orange, and yellow.

 Strange combination, but it worked out better than I'd envisioned.  Here's my take on the challenge.

 I made this card by adhering strips of pink, orange, and yellow to a piece of card stock, then punching the shaped edge.  The ribbon slots were also punched using a MS punch.  The sentiment is from PTI.  I found three different sized flowers in my stash in the colors I needed, and stacked them and added a piece of pink bling for the center. I also added some green leaves behind the flower. Leaves were cut with a Memory Box die.


I wanted to try something a bit different for this card, so I used my largest Spellbinder die for the flourished square cut in orange.  The finished size of this card is approximately 4.25 x 4.25 inches.  I added a layer of yellow in a 3 inch square.  I used some 1/8 inch score tape to adhere the bright pink ribbon around the card and added a bow with the same ribbon.  To make the back of the card, I cut a square piece the width of the solid area of the front of the card plus 1/2 inch extra.  I scored the piece at 1/2 inch and folded it down. This is the area I attached to the back of the card for the fold.  The ribbon hides where the two pieces are joined. The sentiment is from PTI and was stamped on white card stock.  I cut it out using a Spellbinder die, then cut a small bright pink border for the banner.  The sentiment is pop dotted for a little added dimension.  I added three tiny pieces of bright pink bling to finish it off.

That's my take on the challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by!! Your comments are always appreciated and welcomed.  Until next time...

Hugs!
