Thanks, Chickie!

It's Color Me Crazy Monday, or so I hear - and the challenge today over at Papertrey Ink fits in perfectly! I love it when things work out like that :)

Here's the colors we were given:I don't have any orange zest or terracotta tile from PTI, so I subbed in some pumpkin pie and really rust from SU! Here's what I came up with:
What do you think? I've used a color combo similar to this in the past, minus the terracotta tile/really rust. In fact, my college graduation announcements were these colors :) The terracotta/rust color definitely provided a challenge for me though. Supplies for this simple card are listed below. I'll probably list this in my poor, neglected Etsy store later today.

I hope everyone is having a great Monday! Be sure to visit the PTI site to see about their exciting anniversary announcements - including acrylic paint!!

  1. I was so glad that I didn't get assigned this color combo, but I have seen some awesome cards made with it! I especially love your polka dot stamping and the great big Avocado button!!!

  2. Love that sentiment. Way to rock the PTI paint by numbers challenge.

    It's a good life!

  3. You created a beautiful card with this color combo, Jen! I found it a bit out of my comfort zone.

  4. Really like your polka dots and button. I had the same color combo and it was tough!!
