This is an "interesting" color combination......but, I think it works! Must be because of that new theory, "brown is the new black!!" The brown...or in this case, Close to Cocoa.....seems to ground these colors. One more interesting fact: these are colors in the new SU DSP pack in the Holiday Mini, Frosty Day. However, I do not own any of this new paper....since I really need to use up some of what I already have on hand, I didn't purchase it! Some of the cards and projects I've seen with this paper have been spectacular, but, I'm still not comfortable with these as Christmas colors! So, when using these colors for our Challenge this week, I did not make a holiday card, but made a friendship, or thank you card instead. We still need those, right?...even at this time of the year!
This layout has been floating around lately since it was a challenge on SCS recently, and it works perfectly for this card, doesn't it?!! The base of the card is Close to Cocoa and each strip of color was stamped with a set I haven't really used in awhile, Seeing Spots. Once I decided on the layout and stamp set, this card really was fairly quick....only that faux stitching took a bit of time.
So, what do you think of this color combination: Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, and Whisper White?
