Embellish Embossing Color Challenge

I stayed up late last night working on my card for the latest Embellish challenge. And granted Practicing Creativity is sponsoring, but I LOVE this:

I think those images are gorgeous. Now... that isn't to say I had an easy time with this card! Don't you think it's funny how colors look so gorgeous together, but then give you fits when you actually try to work them together on a card? I decided to break out Look Up! and For the Love of Dots for this card.


I had to adjust my colors just a tad, and I'm in love with that pink twill which is a little lighter. I seriously do not have any true blue paper or ink! You can come play along with this challenge here! I hope you all have a great weekend!

Love the banners with the Celebrate - just perfect. And I know EXACTLY what you mean when you see colors that go well or look fun together and then just can't seem to get them together yourself...not easily anyway; but this is really fun!

WOW Courtney, this card has so many fun details I don't know where to look first. That pink twill is fab, and so is that blue button.

I think that little drop of blue in the button works beautifully! This challenge is on my to do list! It would be lovely to have "For the Love of Dots" in my collection.

Hope you're finding some down time in your busy schedule.

I'd have to dig into my scrapping supplies for a true blue....I do a ton of scrappy pages with that color. But, I think your button works really well and I also really like how you layered the banners...makes me feel like I'm at a party!! :>
