The Paper Players Color Challenge

Hi everyone!

It's my turn to host the color challenge at The Paper Players today. 

Here's what I chose:

I saw the color combo in the Stampin' Up catty. 
I probably would never choose the colors together, so I thought it would be a fun challenge. They are really pretty!

I made another square card...I'm kinda into those lately...using Talyored Expressions mini block cutting plate. The stamps are also from TE, called "Life is a Kitchen." Which I spend a lot of time kitchen! (You can also check out my other blog...Cookin Up North.)

 I did add the small apron stamped under the sentiment from SCC's " From the Kitchen." A few sparkly enamel dots and the card was done!

Now I have to confess.

Take a CLOSE look at the Tangerine Tango ink and the matching (?) paper. I was wondering why the ink was so much lighter.Then I realized I grabbed the wrong paper for the frame and heart! It's actually Dusty Durango. 


 I guess it's pretty close anyway!

We sure would love to have you join us this week...head on over to The Paper Players and play along!

Have a Happy Valentines day!
