Today's Color Challenge (CC581) was a little challenging to me..I like the sky blue & green..even the wisteria..but that blackberry color is one I'm not that crazy about. And it's hard to match. I did the best I could using Distress inks & just hoped for the best.
I sponged the Distress inks across a large white panel. Then I put the Medallion Bg into my Misti & applied the Memento inks to it & stamped on top of the sponged bg. In the sky blue & wisteria areas I applied ink again & restamped. After die cutting this panel w/ 2 sizes of Pierced Rectangles, I inserted a fancy white layer in between then attached them to my card. The greeting centerpiece was die cut w/ a Pierced Circle, layered onto a larger sponged blackberry layer & attached to a die cut piece of vellum. I used the same die to cut the white topper, but also used the inside die to cut out the middle & make a frame of it. I trimmed a couple of little corners from a Majestic Medallion die cut & added them below the greeting.
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups & the inside are on my blog: The Write Stuff

Wow! Julie, this is fabulous! Your sponging of the challenge colors is amazing. I like how the two panels are opposite of each other. It's very effective. The die-cuts are awesome. What a beautiful card! You did great. TFS
