KWerner Color Inspiraton 55



I decided to give Kristina Werner's color challenge a go today. I've looked frequently at all of the adorable cards created by so many creative people with my own intentions to do it too! Well, finally I got the opportunity to join in the fun. My daughter needed a birthday card today for a boy from school. I thought the color challenge would be perfect to get me started without having to come up with my own color combination.











For this card, I used All In The Family, Let's Party, and Hugs and Wishes Stampin' Up! stamp sets. For the first time ever, I tried some stitching on my card. I usually try to keep my cards quick and simple but I thought I would add a little bit extra to my card. I stitched it by hand using linen thread and a needle. I think I'm gonna like this new look. Additionally, I've just started getting into the habit of using my Stampamajig to line up images for my cards. I've always been a bit hesitant to use it but now I quickly reach for it to get everything exactly where I want it. It is now one of my essential stamping tools. I used it for the little boy on the card front. I had LOTS of fun with this challenge. I think I'll have to try this again next week.

Thanks for all of your comments on my card. They are greatly appreciated. A couple of you inquired about the gray striped ribbon. It was part of a Ribbon Originals a couple of years ago. It was called District.
