Whenever I can, I like to play along with the challenges at the Fiskateers site, especially Lead Fiskateer Tami's monthly color challenge. December's was the "Mr. Grinch" challenge- use red, bright pink and lime green together. Yikes- challenging, indeed! To make it even more of a challenge, I decided to only use scraps- no cutting into a whole piece of paper to make a small card.
I envisioned a clean and modern Christmas card. Here's what I made:
I never thought I'd like red, hot pink and lime together, but I totally think it works. Especially with the red rhinestones. And that's why I love color challenges so much- I never would have tried this combination on my own!
