A surprise color combo, a challenge for you and blog candy!



Hi all! So how was it for you waking up and it still being so dark thanks to the spring forward time change?! Yuck. One of my boys was asking what time it was because he just knew mom had woken him up too early! Ok, on to the good stuff!! Judy threw a little curve ball at us for our RCAK challenge this weekend. We had to go here -> http://www.scraptitude.com/colorcombo/ and click on *surprise me* and use whatever color combo came up! So here's the combo I ended up with and the card I made using it:


The colors are orchid opulence, not quite navy, pomegranate and white. So MY challenge to YOU is to make a card using this combo!!! I know not many like orchid (I'm one of them!), but with the right colors, it's actually pretty cool!

Just leave a comment with the link to your card or just let me know that you posted one, so I can check it out! For my card, I used the One of a Kind set with the matching Boho punch. So fun! The layout was cased from this week's Featured Stamper on SCS, parisotremba.


Now, that blog candy I promised what, a week ago?? Here 'tis!


What is it? Well, some glitter brads, cute little acrylic stamp set, a whole roll of sheer polka dot ribbon and yes, the flowers are included! Just leave any ol' comment here and I'll randomly pick a number Sunday at 9pm cst.

So have fun with the color challenge and thanks for stoppin' by!

Wow I personally like the color purple, any shade in it too so that would probably include orchid. I like the way your card turned out.

I love the layout and set used on your card! The color combo takes a bit of adjusting as I'm not an "orchid" person but I'm going to CASE what you did and see if I can find some love with the combo you used. Thanks for the chance at some candy! jmniffer
