Who's up for a color challenge??

Well I've got one for you sponsored by the Diva's Coffee Break Designs! This week we have these four luscious colors to work with and it was fun. I do have to apologize and admit that I ran off to our county fair yesterday, ended up with 6 kids to chase from ride to ride, and got home late (after a gigantic downpour!) and completely forgot about my Diva card- OOPS! So I whipped something out after 10pm last night and was able to put the finishing touch on this morning before getting it posted.

Hope you like it! This is the Branch Out set which I've been feeling bad about not using much lately, as well as a sentiment from Think Happy Thoughts. When it was all done I added the sponged shadow beneath the tree because it felt too stark, but now I'm not so sure I should have... what do you think? (It's OK to be honest- I'm a big girl).

Thanks for stopping by and visiting on this lovely Wednesday! Hope you have a fabulous day and have a chance to stamp something for yourself! Hey, while you're at it, why don't you go play along with our Diva challenge- I'd love to see it!

  1. Love this! I especially like your little embellishment there! Cute!

  2. Love the tree, beautiful job with the color combination for this challenge

  3. Hi Kristin!
    I never would have thought of these colors with Branch Out but I have to tell you I LOVE your card! The circle embellie peeking off to the side is so cute too.
    I think I would have added the sponging too, looks good.

  4. SOOO Beautiful, I LOVE branch out!!!

  5. I really like your card and I like your whole blog. I need to visit it more often! I'm answering a question you asked in an earlier post - I like your blog because it's SU Only, and I love your designs, and you hang out at CindyB's blog and so do I!

  6. Beautiful! Absolutely love the colors you used. Great layout, especially love the circle part. Gorgeous card!

  7. Great color combo ... great card ... great layout. I love the scallop circle tucked behind. Also like the sponging at the base of the tree ... makes it more grounded.

  8. Kristin, this card is so lovely! It's perfect for the colors! I don't know why I haven't gotten this set.
