SCS Color Combo Challenge - CC161 Glorious Navy

Good Morning, Friends. Wow, I have to pat myself on the back. . .I actually completed yesterday's and today's SCS challenges. Yay! The only reason I was able to do it is because my kids returned to school and my husband is gone on a business trip. I am running on my "own" time! LOL! I can do what I want to do. . .no one to dictate my time. Just kidding. It is easier to get my crafting done when I can concentrate on it.

Today's challenge is the color combo challenge - CC161 Glorious Navy The color combo is SU Real Red, Glorious Green, and Night of Navy. The first thing I thought was to create a Christmas card because the combo is more like Christmas colors but I wasn't in the mood to create a Christmas card.

My card also qualifies for yesterday's challenge - TL163 - "Stacked Ribbons"

In the end it actually worked out using the SU Mixed Bouquet set. I stamped the background then filled in the "white" areas with a sponge dauber. The main flowers were watercolored, cut out, mounted with foam tape, and I added a little bit of glitter. The sentiment is from the SU "Friendly Flowers" stamp set.

The layout is from a card that I created last night below. I wasn't in the mood to think up of another design so I cased my own card! LOL!


Here is my own card that I had used to case the challenge card. Everything is the same except for the color combo. The color combo for this card is SU Pumpkin Pie, Cranberry Crisp, and Black.

Anyway. . .if interested in this challenge, be sure to drop by SCS and check it out! If I have the time, maybe I'll add another card. We'll see.

Have a great day, Everyone!!!
