Jewelled July at The Outlawz Color Challenge - Week 2

This week, Margaret will be our host at the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. She is challenging us to use the following color combo: Cranberry Red, Pea Green and Coffee Bean Brown. This week the Jewelled July Twist is "Add Ribbon".

I have to be honest and let you know that this week color combo had me totally stunned. I would not normally used these colors together and I was tempted to "call in sick" for this one. I just couldn't come up with anything until I checked my paper stack and it was like all the colors were calling on to me and somehow the craft fairy was inspiring me. My daughter Gabrielle was graduating from University in a few days and I wanted to make a card that expresses her sense of wonder and her wit. I looked in my "A Day for Daisies" (our monthly sponsor) folder to find an image that would say just that and found one that fit perfectly called: New Things.

Our sponsor this month is A Day for Daisie. Tammy, the owner, donated wonderful images to the DT and is offering a $12 gift certificate from her online store to our monthly winner.

I hope you will join us this week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. Can't wait to see what you will do with this color combination.
