AC165 - Colour Challenge. Hello Friend...

Today at Annabelle Stamps we have a fabulous colour challenge for you!!

 This is my card using the colours.. Well sort of... LOL!

I had a vision of what this card was going to look like... It's nothing like it, at ALL! Not to say that I don't like my card, but I like to be honest with you, and it's just not the fabulous thing I had going on in my head... But I digress... It is what it is, and although I should learn that sometimes less is more you never know unless you try... And lets face it, it turned out...ok.

I started off the card by stamping some of the gorgeous images from the AS Garden Silhouettes stamp set...

... on white cardstock with my SU Baja Breeze waterbased ink and then stamped some more images with my Tim Holtz's Weathered Wood distress ink. Then over the top again I stamped using my VersaColor Indigo ink pad. I then used the pumpkin colour in my chalk set to give the whole thing a nice soft background {the photo actually doesn't do this justice}. I chose my papers from Lilybee's "Autumn Spice" 6x6 paper pad, it was a perfect match to the challenge colours. I then sewed, changed the card, and sewed a bit more. It need a sentiment so I stamped the "Hello Friend" onto a white banner and added a button and was finished... Until I added the corner stamp {this is where less is more comes into play!}.... Then I was finished.

I don't want you to think that I want you all to tell me that I am being too harsh on myself either. I just want to be honest with you and myself and being really honest means we all know not every card turns out perfect and exactly how you see it in your head... LOL!
