Today's color challenge on Splitcoaststampers was a toughie for me today. Who in their right mind uses Taken with Teal, Baja Breeze, Real Red and White together???? Ugh! Gag me! Not to be defeated by a simple color challenge I pulled out all the colors and immediately decided the key was to accent only with the bright colors and make the bulk of the card the more subtle Baja and White. Those two colors reminded me of a Winter's day - but I have made enough Christmas Cards this year - so what else could I use. Birthday? No - not in the mood. Animals? No - not the right colors. Wedding? Red and Teal on a wedding card? Why not give it a go?

I used a wedding set I purchased off the internet as well as SU! Holiday Tag Time (dove) and SU! Seasons of Joy (swirls). White Craft Ink and White embossing powder. Martha Stewart scalloped punch , white ribbon and a Signo White Gel Pen.

Can you see the Real Red? The Taken with Teal? They are there - but ALMOST invisible.

Hope you enjoyed visiting today and be careful if you are out and about. The weather is terrible (at least in East Peoria, Illinois).

Jill, thanks for your comment on my blog! Your card is beautiful. I haven't had a chance to do ANY SCS challenges, but this one sounds "challenging"! I am going to peruse your blog some more!
