Color Combos Galore #161

Hey everyone! Just thought I would come by and share the card I made for this week's color combo and challenge over at Color Combos Galore. I just love the photo this week's color combo was inspired by, but I have to say this one was a little bit tough for me. It took a lot of digging, but I eventually found some papers and embellishments to work with. The more neutral colors initially scared me, but I ended up really liking what I came up with.


The designer's challenge with week was to use handwriting. And while I didn't actually do any handwriting myself, I thought the patterned paper had a doodled kind of look to it that sort of went along with the idea of the challenge.

One of my favorite things about doing these challenges is that it forces me to go through my ever-growing stash of scrapping supplies, and I get to use things that I may have forgotten about (like the Fontwerks patterned paper) and mix them with some of my favorite/newer things to use (like the Basic Grey chipboard alpha).

I hope you get a chance to play along this week, and if you do, make sure to post it in the Color Combos Galore Gallery so that we can all see.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hugs! :)
