CR84FN - Grape, Blue, and Green

I know...back again! I've been on a roll this weekend getting a few challenges done that I've been wanting to try.  This week's challenge at CR84FN (Create for Fun) challenge is a color challenge using the colors green, blue and grape.  Here's my take on the challenge.


I think I tried to take a decent photo of this card about 4 times, and I just can't seem to get the true colors of the card. Phooey!  The colors really are close to the challenge colors....honest!  I cut the branch with my Cameo, then hand cut some small leaves to fit on the branch.  The "grape" colored blooms are a MB flower die, as is the "blue" bird.  I used a Flourishes sentiment and embossed the background with a PTI embossing plate.  Then I added a tiny grape border around the embossed background.  The flowers and the grape border are the same paper...now why didn't they photograph the same?!?  For a final touch, I added some liquid pearls to the centers of the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are always appreciated! Until next time.....

Hugs!

So very striking! Love your card. I have the same problem taking photos of some of my cards. My camera just doesn't like white or cream! Your card is beautiful in this photo so I can't imagine what it looks like in real life!

Love your card Susan. So clean and simple. I had trouble taking a photo of my last card and in the end had to scan it - which I don't like doing but it was the only way to get the true colours! Mad eh?

Hugs.
