A Color Challenge

Good morning, Friends! Well the baseball game was horrible! We lost by mercy rule. Yikes! We just couldn't hit the ball. Nick tried but the other team fielded well and that didn't work out so well. Oh well. I might take him to the batting cages today. He is always begging me to pitch to him. But I don't want to go out in all the heat and I am not a very good pitcher (for boys). We keep thinking that we might get a pitching machine.

Today's card is made for a challenge at Create With Connie and Mary. I was one of their top three picks for their sketch challenge! That was a nice surprise! So I thought I would try their color challenge this week. I have to be honest... Since these colors are retiring, I had already packed them away. I never used them anyway and was ready to be done with them. I was into the whole "out with the old, in with the new" idea and was ready to move on. But I dug them out and here you go. I made it very simple because these colors scare me (LOL)!! Check out their blog to see what they came up with. Great samples!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super Friday!!

Card Recipe: Stamps- On Your Birthday; Paper- Brilliant Blue, Bermuda Bay, Summer Sun, Green Galore, Whisper White; Ink- Brilliant Blue; Accessories- Brilliant Blue brad, small star punch, perfect polka dots embossing folder, dimensionals


  1. I know what you mean about these colors being 'scary'! I had retired mine too and had to pull them out for the challenge. Thanks for playing along on this week's challenge on Create with Connie and Mary!

  2. Really neat use of color. I love the panels across.

  3. Well, I'm glad you dug them out...your clean and simple card is wonderful! Thanks for playing along with Create with Connie and Mary this week!
