Bright & Funky!!

Bright & funky - these are the colours from the challenge of Kristina for this week. WOW!!!
The main colours are Black, Pumpkin Pie & Rose Red; with our choice to use Summer Sun or Green Galore. I've chosen to go with the green, even though I don't really like that shade of green and would hardly ever use it on a card. But that's what a challenge is for: create something out of something you've been given (does that make sense)

So put your sunnies on; here is my card. I've chosen green as the main colour as well, imitating the bedding. The stamps are from Baroque Motif. I used my SU markers for the different colours on the stamped image and added a green button in the middle. It's a really simple card, but I'm happy with the end result. I'm sure if I send it to someone, it's bound to brighten their day.

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Baroque Motifs

Cardstock: Basic Black (textured), Green Galore, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red & Whisper White

I like the way your card turned out! I too, do not use the green galore very much. I love that you used baroque motifs set. The bg is very similar to the bed spread and the orange and pink medalion looks like it should be one of the pillows that go with the bed set! Love it!
