Make The Cards Challenge #24


 Welcome back friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on  Make The Cards Challenge.
Today we are having a color challenge ...


And a new term begins today which means HELLO to a few new members and GOOD-BYE to a few others.  Here's our 3rd Quarter DT group:


 Believe it or not, I struggle with color challenges!  Half of my brain keeps going to a simple color block design but the other half says "NO! ... you can do better than that!"  So while going through my MANY design papers I came across this awesome Amy Designs 'Underwater' 6x6 2-sided pack and found this beautiful sheet. 


It's bright colors on one side and the same design in muted colors on the other side ... pretty cool.  If you look closely, you will see all four of these colors are within the design.  I've added a dot of each color using Nuvo Crystal Drops across the top of the sentiment panel just as a color reference.

The scuba diver was one of eight images on the flip side of the 'sand panel' so I did a bit of fussy cutting and popped him up to accent the sentiment which is from Stampscapes.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun ... here's the link for you one more time ...
