Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo #12

I'm starting to like these challenges that I find! Of course, then when you enter, you have to go see everyone else's submissions, which leads to more yummy ideas but also more then I have to see if I can make something for that one too. It is a lovely little circle of events, you know?

I did stumble across the Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo blog just that way and once I saw the challenge I really wanted to enter it. Thought the prize was cool too...Copic markers from iCopic! I don't own any Copics or even know what I would do with them, but the color combination was just too much fun to pass the challenge by. And I bet I would get some pointers on how to use them by checking out all these blogs I'm finding these days!

The color combo was similar to the Raspberry Suite Challenge but since I had so much fun with that one I wanted to do it again. Ok, so want and actually doing are different things...I had a heck of a time getting a result out last night even though I had pulled many of my various card making items that fit in the color scheme out and they were sitting in front of me. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what to do. Part of this, I think, was the fact that I'm actually done making Thank You cards from the wedding. Yes, you heard right, DONE! So for this card I was puzzled as to what to do next! AHHH! Anyway, I left my crafty table with nothing made last night figuring that something would come to me in the morning....

And I was right! It all fit into place today. Go figure! So enough about that and on to the card! :)

The result turned out to be this little "Hello" card with a bit of my Hawaiian themed paper that I have around my crafty table due to working on a scrapbook of a trip to there in March. I wanted to showcase the pretty little flowers that were in the patterned paper and I thought I would turn the sentiment on its side (something I don't do much of). Finish it off with a little pink flower with orange button and the card was complete. I can't wait to give it to a friend! I think a friend would enjoy it out of the blue and I hope you did too! Thanks for stopping by!

Paper: Blue from DieCuts with a View 6.5x4.5 Mat Stacks, Orange from Bazzil Basics, Patterned from Unknown
Extras: Flower from Prima Flowers/Costa Brights, Button from Dress It Up, "Hello" Stamp by Hampton Art (the Michel's $1 bin)

P.S. Check out the SPCC blog also for some blog candy to be handed out in September!
