Razzleberry Pink


For the OCC this week, our challenge is a color challenge based on this photo. Don't those petit fours look yummy?

I'm not sure why but I had trouble getting started with this challenge - I think the hot pink threw me, LOL. Once I decided to use this DP from Razzleberry Lemonade and the coordinating Razzle Dazzle stamp set, my card came together pretty quickly. For my colors I used melon mambo and pretty in pink, along with chocolate chip and whisper white.

I first colored the "stripe" pattern stamp with markers and used my Stamp-a-ma-Jig to align two impressions of the stamp. (Unfortunately the two images didn't join quite correctly, but a little carefully placed taffeta ribbon took care of that!) I also colored the main image with markers and cut it out with Nestabilities. The sentiment is from the Autumn Harvest rub-ons, and I used 5/16" chocolate chip brads (with the prongs cut off) in the upper left corner. And that's it, really... I can't believe how much time I put into this card that was so simple in the end!

I hope you find these colors inspiring and come play the challenge this week! Be sure you also check out the samples from the rest of the team - they are amazing as always. Thanks for visiting my blog and have a great weekend!
