More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday Challenge

Good Morning Everyone!  I live in NYC and we got over a foot of snow overnight Wednesday into Thursday and I had a snow day from work.  This is a record breaking winter for us and it isn't stopping anytime soon.  I am so over it and Spring is still a long way away.  Oh well...

I made this card Wednesday night to enter Paula's challenge on her blog.  This is the first time I am participating in one of her challenges.  It is a color challenge using the colors pink, brown and green.  I like color challenges because sometimes you have to pair colors that are not normally your style and have to find a way to make it your own.  I am a follower of Momo's and decided to give it a try as she is a designer for this week's challenge.


Recipe: Pink CS from Michael's cut using doily card from Wild Cards cart at 5".  Brown patterned paper from American Crafts cut out in a circle using Plantin Schoolbook at 4".  Flower from Pagoda cart cut at 3".  I used a pearl brad in the middle from Imaginisce and I decorated the card with Viva Decor Pearl pens in Ice White and Brown because I thought it needed more oomph, lol.  I did faux stitching all around the card and flower with a Signo white gel pen.  I so had to restrain myself from using stickles because I love stickles but this card has enough going on, ha ha.  Besides, second to stickles are my Viva Decor pens so I still had fun. 

I like it.  As I said this isn't a color palette I would normally choose, so I had to really work at finding something that I liked.  I tried and that is what is important, right?  I hope whoever reads this tries as well.  I will use this a s a just cause card so I will write a note on the inside.  Enjoy and thank you for looking and commenting.  I never realized how good it makes you feel when other people compliment your work until I started this.  So thank you for the confidence boosts!
