Cool Color Challenge {DCBD162}

Not at all what I had imagined... this card that is. I started out thinking I'd use mostly Chocolate, Olive & Teal with a hint of Regal Rose. I also started out with a different stamp set. Then the doorbell rang and I had new goodies at my disposal. I finally caved on the Sweet Treat Cups and coordinating stamp set on my last order. I just knew my daughter would love to use this for her Valentines.

After I stamped my images I felt so "ho-hum blah" about the card that I almost started over. But persistent as always I kept at it until I was satisfied. That little touch of glitter on the wing helped tremendously (even though the original dots are so cute!).

Anyway, this week's DCBD color challenge is Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal, Regal Rose and Old Olive (obviously). There are endless possibilities for this combo so I hope you'll play along with us!

Gotta run,
have a great day and thanks for visiting! Go play with the Divas!
