2RedBananas Color Challenge

This card is for 2RedBanana's Challenge for this week. It's a color challenge this time - orange, purple and black. Why don't you play along - it will be fun! Edited to add: Here is a direct link to the challenge post.

I know those should probably be Halloween colors, but I wanted to do something different. This is what I came up with. I used glossy white cardstock. (Actually, I used photo paper.) I first brayered Stampin' Up!'s Pumpkin Pie on the top three-fourths of the card. Then I punched a circle and put it over the Pumpkin Pie and brayered again with Pumpkin Pie. Then I brayered Tangerine Tango on the very top and down a little ways. I next brayered with Almost Amethyst starting at the bottom and working my way up. Next I brayered with Lovely Lilac on the bottom. I stamped the trees from SU!'s Lovely as a Tree. The quote is from 2RedBananas' set Wrapped In His Love. I matted the brayered and stamped piece on black cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

this is a beautiful card. I love the colors you used for the challenge. You nailed this one. I would have also thought Halloween. Good job of thinking outside of the box!

This is a neat card Lynette. It was so great seeing you last week. I did cave and turn the furnace on yesterday. I could not take it anymore. Did you go to the RS Expo? Me NO!!!

nette this is an absolutely gorgeous card. I think that the colors that you used certainly can be used for Halloween. I *love* that stamp set. I checked it out after seeing your card. :) Time for me to get my brayer out and use it. Thanks for the inspiration.
