PCCC190 - Thank You

It's not very often that the challenges for which I am on the design team both have colour challenges, but that's exactly the way it happened this week.  As it happens, the colours were different for each.  Two separate cards were, therefore, necessary.

I decided to create a single layer stamped card for this challenge and so used a mask to keep the colours to one area of the Whisper White and then sponged my colours.  I sponged the Tempting Turquoise at the top, next I sponged the Watermelon Wonder, and then I sponged the Crushed Curry.  At the very bottom I sponged the Cucumber Crush.  I loved the way the colours give the illusion of a setting sun and so I decided that a silhouette of a tree would be a perfect addition.  Since neutrals are allowed, I stamped the tree from the Sheltering Tree set as well as a few of the leaves from the same set.  The sentiment from the Circle of Spring set finished the card off nicely.

I hope you'll join us this week at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.

I've also added this card to the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge which has a CAS challenge this week.
