Hot Pink, Orange and Purple

Sounds like a crazy bunch of colors, doesn't it? I guess that is why we call these "challenges!"

Creative Inspirations posted this challenge, and my initial reaction, before I saw the DT cards, was"WHAT?!" Take one look at the ideas they present, and you want to try it out for yourself, just like I did!

I went looking through my stash of papers, and I found one that had those colors! Who knew!
It even had gold glitter dots on it, and yesterday I had made 3 little wire flowers with a gold tone wire--appears to be a match made in heaven!
I colored Tilda with my Prismacolor pencils because I don't have Copics in the right colors.

Here is what I used:
Berry Tilda--Magnolia-licious
Italian Poetry Background Stamp--Hero Arts
Ribbon--JoAnn Fabrics
DCWV "Once Upon a Time" cardstock
Bazzill Basics purple cardstock
SU! cardstock in Only Orange and Pink Passion
MS Scalloped Eyelet punch

For the layout, I used a card from the latest Magnolia Ink Magazine,
Midsummer's Night Dream, page 43--
"Summer Blooms" by Mary

Take a peek inside...
It is hard to tell, but those purple flowers are punched with
a MS dual punch, "Dahlia" and then cut out from the cardstock.

Thinking outside of the box can make for some very beautiful cards!

I, for one love it.. sometimes the crazier the colors, the lovier the card... and this is a great card... You did so well with your coloring and then just started adding colors as you wanted and it all worked out... the paper had a little gold, purple, orange, so you put it all together and put the pink.... Great thought and it works!!! Great card inside too.
Hugs, Jean
