FUNdamentals in a card....

Yesterday, I created a card using the sketch from Atlantic hearts challenge sketch  using this sketch:                                                                                                  

I also followed the colour challenge from Color my heart color dare where I was challenged to use only these colours:                                                                                                                                

When looking at this colour combination I was stumped at first and had to do some thinking and looking through my stash, as these are colours I do not usually put together. In fact, I have hardly ever used Goldrush. Close to my Heart has created a paper pack for each colour family that they have and made patterned paper using the colours from that family, with only one colour per side of the paper. I love the looks of this paper but have been having a hard time using them, I happened to have the Enchantment FUNdamentals paper pack which includes the colours Eggplant and Goldrush. After some fun stamping and fussy cutting, this is the card I created.
I had fun playing and thinking about how to use the colours and the sketch, I even randomly added bling :) Here is a pic of the supplies used: 
The color challenge is good for two weeks and the sketch challenge has to be posted by tonight. Happy playing!

  2. Fabulous CAS card, Arlene! I love the color combo as well as the subtle use of the background patterns on the butterflies, very effective! Thanks for sharing with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

  3. Great job on combining both the Color Dare and AHSC...and using the eggplant Paper Fundamentals design paper is so attractive. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare, please come back to our to our current color challenge using blues.

  4. I also found this was not a color combination I would have thought of using... but you created a pretty CAS card and used two challenges. Very well done! Thank you for playing along at Color Dare.

  5. I love this sketch and how you used the Color Dare Colors! The butterflies are perfect for this card. Thank you for playing along with us at Color Dare.
