Simple Color Challenge Card
For this week's clean and simple cards and the color challenge at Splitcoaststampers, I did this card using the Trendy Trees stamp set. I loved the clean and simple sketch. The color challenge was to use Rose Red, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray. For dessert we could add any other color. What a great dessert option as three colors is often a real challenge and this gives us a chance to use discontinued colors. My choice was Bermuda Bay. I did have to think a little outside the box for me on the trees and give them Gray trunks. Ok, that isn't much outside the box, but I'm pretty literal so my trees always have brown trunks. :-)
Hope you have a great Wednesday. If you want to relax in front of the TV tonight, check out the Defenders at 10 Eastern on CBS. I watched last week because I usually enjoy Jim Belushi. The show was much better than I expected - the characters have more depth. Definitely worth seeing again.
