365 Cards Monday Color Scheme

The 365 Cards Challenge for today is to use this Color Scheme.

I don't think Pam has ever given me a color scheme before, or if she has it's been a while. I don't normally care for color schemes because I'm never sure if I have to use ALL the colors or just some of them, or if I can use different shades of the colors, or what. That's why I'm more of a sketch kind of gal. But it just so happens that I went to my LSS last week and picked up a sheet of double sided Bo Bunny paper that was PERFECT for this color scheme!

I added the gold Close to My Heart textured cardstock and the dark aqua ribbon, and TA DA! I also put one of my Martha Stewart punches to work, plus my new Nestability Labels One die.

Check out the pearl that I glued to the small button. That's a left over from one of the Mac Mae Card Kits. Way to use my left overs! I think this turned out to be a yummy combination. I also love the fact that the paper was sort of trendy on one side and more vintage on the other. It really looks cool together!

Thanks for stopping by! Remember - I love reading your comments so don't be shy!


  1. excellent job on the color challenge Gloria...lucky duck that you were able to find some delish papers that had all the colors in it!!

  2. well i am in shock that pam didn't give you a "M" challenge after all the ideas we gave her! LOL this is a beautiful card :0) i dont see shades well so i am using the same paper Michelle used as it has all the colors in it ;0) thats NOT cheating it's being inspired by someone, right? LOL

  3. I love your card today Gloria, the papers are gorgeous indeed. As Rose said the BG June Bug paper pad had all the colours required for this one so being my newest acquisition, I had to use it lol as well as my new Martha Stewart punch hahaha. I think we have all rocked the challenge. There doesn't seem to be a lot of people doing the challenges at the moment does there?

  4. Amazing card! Very pretty papers... I love it! and the pearl on the button.. great idea I may have to try that ;) I hate leaving them unstitched but sometimes just cant be bothered lol xx
