UDI45 Natures Pace Color Challenge

Welcome back!  I hope you enjoyed this weekend’s Super Saturday Tutorial, and Christmas Cards!  Today I’m sharing another color challenge for the Utah Divas International Design Team! 

Today’s color challenge asked use to use Certainly Celery, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, and Concord Crush in a card or project.  LOL… I actually made another card, but right before posting realized I had left out one of the challenge colors!!  So I quickly made another card and design... 20 minutes start to finish, and not as ornate as the original design I had created.  I’ll share the other card on Friday Smile Hope you’ll stop back to see it too!

Today’s UDI Color Challenge card features the lovely new Idea Book & Catalog stamp sets:  Petite Pairs, and Nature’s Pace, along with embossing, pearls, and a double loop bow with a proper tail, tied on my fingers!

LOVE the new embossing frames duo folders!!  I used a wide oval punch to punch out the thistle image from Nature’s Pace and popped it into the center of the oval frame.  (LOL, never saw a tempting turquoise thistle… but had to get that darn color in there and it was very late in the evening!)UDI45, color challenge, Sharon Field, Created by You, new products, idea book and catalog, natures pace, petite pairs, embossing folder duo, big shot machine, perfect polka dots, basic jewels, pearls, wide oval punch, double loop bow, super saturday tutoria

The lower portion of the card was embossed with Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder… adds some interest to an otherwise plain area of the card, don’t you think?

Crimped the Concord Crush Card Stock for additional texture.  Thought the string of pearls mimicked well the beaded embossed oval frame… adding some more interest and leading the way to a fabulous (and proper) double loop bow!UDI45, color challenge, Sharon Field, Created by You, new products, idea book and catalog, natures pace, petite pairs, embossing folder duo, big shot machine, perfect polka dots, basic jewels, pearls, wide oval punch, double loop bow, super saturday tutoria

The double loop bow sits right above the tiny oval punched sentiment from Petite Pairs… which is also popped up from the card surface.

LOL, my very good friend Ruth insists that proper bows must have proper tails, and that they must be dove-tailed too!  I know she’ll like this bow a lot!

LOL… my card looks NOTHING like the inspiration piece!  I wonder what the rest of the team will come up with?  Come play along with us, create your very own card or project using today’s UDI45 Challenge Colors, and then upload the URL of your creation at the Utah Divas International Blog!

You've made a beautiful card.

Thanks

Two embossing folders were used on this card, the new catalog "Designer Frames" duo and perfect polka dots both from the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog. Unfortunately, Sally Lou... you probably don't have them in New Zealand yet!
