Color Challenge on Papercraft Planet

I know, you all must think I'm a "challenge junkie" ... right??? OKAY ... I admit it ... I AM!!! But what fun and what a great way to get your creative juices flowing!!!


Here is a card for "yet another" challenge. This one is sponsored by Treehouse Stamps - Ashley Bowen over on Papercraft Planet. The colors today are: vanilla, chocolate chip, cameo coral, and robin hood red. Never in a million years would I have put these colors together and it took me a little while to get this worked out, but I'm very happy with the results. What are your thoughts??
The card consists pretty much of only these four colors, punched and layerd. The punches used here are Martha Stewart doily lace punch and the branch punch. The only stamping is this cute image by Crafty Secrets (vintage christmas set) and I colored it with SU watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I did add a little liquid applique to the furry accents on her coat & hat.
Hope you like it ... all comments are welcome!! Have a great day!! I'd better go get my work done... OH GOODNESS, look at the time ... I'll definately have to speed clean today!!! Happy Stamping All!!

Okay okay -- I saw that little baby and thought I did it - ha! That is my FAV stamp in the entire set - and I love the way you added liquide applique, what a neat trick! Looks great with those colors!

This is such an interesting color combo. I would love to play this challenge, but I'm afraid it will have to wait. I have company coming tonight and they are staying for 5 days. No time for stamping. Sad. I'm going to go thru stamping withdrawal.
