Hitting the JustRite Challenge 112 - Color Inspiration one more time....

I have to admit....this color combination has me both intrigued and befuddled.  Honestly, this has been such a difficult combo for me to work with....I think because the colors almost seem to clash to my eye. When I finally got something together I liked the rather "vintagely" look that the colors had but it took me a long time and a lot of futzing around before I came up with a card I liked!  I went a little layer heavy on this particular card....everytime I tried to bring it in with fewer layers I ended up with a card that seemed to be missing something....obviously I worked on this too long and was getting punchy!  I do love the challenges over at JustRite as they almost always involve their stamps and Spellbinder dies and so I get to use two of my most favorite product lines in a new and interesting way.  So, here is the JustRite color combination challenge 112.


And I did deviate from the exact match on these colors....I just couldn't find any that were an exact match in my stash so some of my colors are a bit darker....and for whatever reason, once I brushed ivory onto my red rose it became purple-ish looking....oh well!

Here is my card-


And thank you for stopping by today....I always appreciate visits and comments!

Be well,
Sheila

Your card is gorgeous- I love the layering! I think some of the cards that are the hardest to make become our masterpieces in the end!

Another great card that is totally different from your last one! I don't think you can have too many layers, can you?! LOL
