Oozak's February Challenge

I made this card for Oozak's February challenge #11 which is "anything goes with your favorite colors." I began to make a card following this sketch challenge, but by the time I was finished, I'd disqualified myself because this is clearly NOT CAS! I have this urge to add layers all the time, and that's what I've done here......again :) My favorite color combination is purple & green, so I die cut the MB Prim Poppy from white & lavender card stocks, and layered it on a royal purple background. The ef was borrowed, so I'm sorry I have no idea who makes it. I matted with PTI New Leaf green, adding matching ribbons and a computer generated sentiment.

Thanks for checking in today - I wish you a fantastic Monday!

Hi Carol,
I love your favorite color combo. They pair so beautifully. The EF is from Cuttlebug. Isn't it funny how we want to keep adding?

I have the same problem......need to add LOTS of layers but to me this card is CAS....lots of open white space! ;0) And that is a CB folder, might be cakked paisley?? Not postive on the name though.

It's a beautiful card, and it looks CAS to me, but then I'm someone who usually puts at least 6 layers on my cards...

Donna Hanley said...

CAS of not, it is gorgeous. I love those two little ribbon pieces and your embossing is so pretty. You really know how to showcase that MB die nicely. Another winner, Carol.

Benzi said...

Very pretty, Carol. That is a really pretty color combo, too.

I think that embossing folder is Cuttlebug's Perfectly Paisley.

Purple and green is a great color combo--I can see why it's your favorite! Love all the details on this--the embossed background, the layers, etc.

Oh I don't know . . . it still has plenty of white space . . .I reckon you could get away with it being CAS.

Very pretty anyway. xxx
