MFT Color Challenge 72

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.
