The Paper Players Color Challenge


Hi everyone!

Today Nance has a color challenge at The Paper Players:




I went pretty heavy on the black and red with just a tiny heart of Calypso Coral. The 3 colors are so pretty together, I wish I would have used more of it. Isn't that how it always goes? You get a card done, go back and look at it, and think of other things you would like to change. But no time for that...I have a ton of things on my list to do! But I will definitely make another card with that color combo again, especially after seeing some of the other DT cards.

You can check those out here:

Addicted to CAS: ( I used XO designer paper)




Curtain Call:  ( I used XO designer paper)



Head on over to The Paper Players and play along!

Laurie, I'm with you. I always look at my finish projects and want to change things! I think yours is perfect just the way it is, though. Love the beautiful embossed black background. It really makes everything else pop!

Pretty card!! And don't worry about the Calypso Coral, sometimes just a smidge of a color is the best way to go! A very lovely Valentine :)

Laurie, this is such a pretty Valentine! I love the little pop of color in the Coral. The embossing and that red banner is fabulous! XX

Gorgeous card! I combined my colours in a similar way - I think sometimes the one that you underplay really stands out if there is only a little of it. Love the xo heart and thinlit word die - perfect for Valentine's Day.
