Today begins a new 2 week challenge at The Challenge!! (try saying that three times!). The Challenge is another wonderful creation by Lesley Croghan and is hosted on her blog Always Playing with Paper. Lesley is the creator of Fusion, Dynamic Duos, Seize the Birthday, Seize the Sketch, Card Concept, and Merry Monday. This time is double the fun because there is a color challenge, and a sketch challenge. You can use either one that inspires you, or you can incorporate them both together like I did. I didn't have all the Stampin' Up! Papers / Inks so I improvised with colors that were similar.
The dark orange pattern paper is purchased, the flower print I stamped myself (why thank you very much!) It was a simple and easy way to sneak in all the colors - the light and dark orange for the flowers, the green on the foliage.
Check out what the rest of the DT made for this challenge.
