So the challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was to pick ONE non-neutral color and pair it with white. You were not allowed to use any other colors. I picked real red.... it sounded good at the time. I'm really not sure about this one. I think maybe the image was too small for the sketch I chose or something.

I think I'm going to try this again because I like how one color looks paired with white, I just am not toooooo happy with this one!

The sketch was based on Beate's Weekend Sketch found HERE.

So, what do you think?

Card Details:
Stamps : Just Celebrate (Stampin' Up)
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Real Red DP (all Stampin' Up)
Embellishments: Hardware (unknown vendor), Prima, Brad (unknown vendor), Ribbon (unknown vendor)

I hope you all have a great day! Happy Stampin' :)

  1. Hey Riley! Just saw the link to your blog over on SCS. I never knew you're from Roanoke! I'm in NoVa now, but grew up in Harrisonburg, a few hours up I-81. Anyway, your card today looks great. Sounds like a tough challenge, but you nailed it! Love all the different patterns and the paper pieced elepant!

  2. Riley, I really like the red. I think it would also look great with a bigger image, but I totally like the elephant. Too cute. Great job on the sketch!

  3. I like it! Way cute. I'm too chicken s*%t to participate in this one - I struggle with being creative with a whole palette of colors!!!

  4. Gorgeous take on the sketch.. love it :)

  5. Aw, that lil polka dotted elephant is adorable! I like how you used the *very* limited colors on such a cute card!

  6. Riley, that's adorable! Hugs and smiles

  7. This is wonderful...I like the little red elephant! Joan

  8. This card looks awesome! I love all the patterns and what you did with the elephant! GREAT blog! Love the grass background!

  9. I think this turned out perfect! I did the challenge too :) It was a fun one. I think I want to do another card with the red's like you did. Looks great!
