Out of My Comfort Zone...

Hi Stampers!

Well after about 3 hours of trying to organize my craft disaster and find my desk...I finally found it! Good thing because I have lots of projects to get made because I want to get ahead a little bit :)

Here is what I made for your Inspiration today...

This card is totally out of my style element - LOL! I normally do not use the bright, bold colors but I saw a challenge on Anyone For Anya to create a card based on this inspiration photo...

When I saw this I immediately thought of the Anya Blooms stamp from The Greeting Farm because of the flowers. I also thought that the color scheme of kraft, burgundy, orange, and dark and light pinks was intriguing. So I thought I would try it out! I don't think it turned out to bad! That is one of the fun things about challenges! Sometimes it is fun to go outside your comfort zone a little and try something new! I never would have put these colors together on my own. My Sentiment is from the Anya Celebrates stamp set.

For my layout I used the sketch from this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge...

Anyway...I hope you were not too blinded by my Bright, Bold, Summer colors - LOL! What do you think of my Blonde Hair color? I have never tried coloring blonde hair with my copics because I don't have many colors yet so I just kind of grabbed a few that looked "Blondish" and went with it - LOL! I kind of like it - more of a golden strawberry blonde.

Here is one last look at my Anya...
