Trying Something New...

I have had more time than usual to play in the craft room this week! Lucky me!

I discovered a new challenge blog that I thought I would try. Usually if I play along with challenges, they are sketch challenges, but this one is a color challenge! How fun is that?!

Have you heard of the Dynamic Duos Challenge Blog? This week just happens to be their one year anniversary celebration so participants can choose from any of the past color combos to make their projects.

I chose this one:

And created this card:

My photo set-up had to be moved this week and is a little less than ideal. I am still having a hard time getting the best pictures, so the gray is not showing up but it is there! =)

This card will also be entered in the Verve Diva Dare to use stars and stripes. 
The extra challenge was to make a CAS card, which is totally not my style, but sometimes it is fun to try something new! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day!
