PPA Color Challenge 79

Ok.  I must admit, (curse of being brutally honest I guess)  when I got the challenge in my inbox this morning for Pals Paper Arts, I couldn't believe it.  To each his own, I know.  But this color combo was not one I would have put together in a million years voluntarily.  I didn't like them even one tiny little bit. 

I guess that's the beauty of challenges though.  They get you out of ruts, even if you don't know you're in one.  I get the green and purple-I use those together all the time.  They're great compliments to each other.  But red with them?  Really?  Seriously?  What on earth am I to make w/ Riding Hood Red, Rich Razzleberry, and Certainly Celery?  Well........
I dusted off my sewing machine for this challenge (ok, I didn't really dust it, per se'.  It's an expression people!  I assure you, there is still plenty of dust on it.) 

And I hate to admit it, but I really like how this card turned out.  I don't know if I'll be reaching for these 3 colors together again any time soon-but hey, it was fun while it lasted!  Thanks PPA for allowing me to create something I love that never would have seen the likes of my scrap room otherwise!

Back later with my matching cards for yesterdays mini magazine card holder-

  1. What a fabulous way to incorporate the challenge colors! The stitched ribbon is the perfect accent!

  2. Very cute - love the ribbon treatment and the stamp set you used. Great way to tackle the color challenge which was very challenging this week!
