One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Color Throwdown # 257

Well, I made two cards because I wasn't sure if I liked the first one, and now I am not sure I really like the second one either.  My father raised "mums" which is what this set is called"  Mum's the Word from PTI.  I really don't think mums are pink, or at least not a hot pink, but in the world of card making, I think anything goes, right?  But the colors did bother me a bit...so I tried making a second card:
So this one has the colors of mum that is more true, (except maybe that little one that has a bit of pink...do you see it over on the side?  Oh well, the challenge was to use these colors:
                                          
                                                                                                                                                                             So if you want to play along with this challenge, go HERE to access the blog and see the other cards the design team made.

  1. The colorscheme is not simple to work with, in my opinion. But I think you did a very good job on both cards! Ik think I like the second one best, but love that sentiment strip on the first!
