lucy's color challenge

Lucy's having her first color challenge.The challenge: use the colors soft pink, aqua blue, and kraft cardstock.
I didn't have a lot of kraft cardstock, but i still wanted to participate in the challenge. I love color challenges, they're a challenge but you have so many style/technique options.

this is Lucy's first challenge, and its just for the joy of scrapping not for a prize. and it'll be open until December 1st.

I knew i wanted to make a circle card cause i'm loving my coluzzle right now. i decided to go with a tone on tone look for the background, so i used colorbox chalk ink in orchid pastel on the pink cardstock, and colorbox chalk ink in mint blue on the aqua cardstock with hero arts dot flourish border stamp. i used die cuts with a view rub on stitching on the background. i used fiskars corner rounder on a small piece of kraft cardstock to give it a label look. I used martha stewarts 3 in 1 butterfly punch, and recollections rhinestones on the the butterflies. the flower is a colorbok chipboard flower (that i got in the sale bin at Michael's for $1) then used a marvy white gel pen to do faux stitching on the label and around the base of the card. the thanks stamp is from hero arts trees, birds and messages set.

i had a lot of fun making this card, i'm so glad lucy started doing challenges i look forward to her next color challenge, thank you so much for looking :)
