My Favorite Things has a color challenge as well as the weekly sketch challenge. The color challenge is every 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. Since I'm caught up with my card projects, I thought I would enter this challenge for the first time.
It's not a requirement to use every color or even the exact colors. Just get as close to the challenge colors as you can. I have most of the MFT inks but just a few colors of the paper.
I used the scallop element from Blueprints 14 and layered the red and gray papers. I love the scallops and the dotted border gives it a modern look. I backed this with some white cardstock and mounted it on a navy blue card base.
The Adorable Elephants stamp is the star of the card. i colored him with some gray Copics and used the coordinating die to cut him out. I stamped the cute flowers right onto the panel and colored them with a couple of blue Copic markers. 2 balloons come in the set, round and heart. Is it a surprise that I chose the heart one? You can see the shine from the shimmer pen I used to finish it.
More Essential Sentiments came to the rescue again with just the right phrase to fit the card theme.
