Color Hues #57


Welcome to February and a new color challenge at the Color Hues challenge blog!  I am the host this fortnight which means I got to choose today's color palette.  Since we've already had a couple of challenges with Valentine colors I decided to go with something spring related.  

Coral and Sage

The background color is reading pinkish here 
but I assure you it's a pretty coral color in person.

I dug into my supply of patterned paper pads and chose two for use in my card today.  I die cut the envelope with the sage paper and used a coral colored design for my background.   I stamped the mini card in black and used a coral cardstock as a mat.  The hand was blended out with Distress Oxide ink with a little dot of a coral Copic for her thumbnail.  After assembling my front panel I popped it up with some fun foam and added three colors of pearls to finish it off.

I invite you to join us over at the Color Hues blog where you'll see lots of coral and sage inspiration from our DT as well as our special guests.  I do hope to see your card in our gallery!

As always, thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me!
