PTI Color Challenge- 4

I have one last card for the Papertrey Release color challenges. I submitted it long ago, but forgot to share it with you! This was Nichole's color combo, which was definitely a stretch for me, but that's why I chose to work with it. In a really sick way, I enjoy a color challenge that scares me, lol.

I kept things really clean and simple since these colors were so bold. I popped up the birdcage to allow the ribbon to run behind it, and to compete with the crazy dimension of the wrinkled ribbon (a new favorite ribbon treatment!). I added a strip of jewels to the bottom of the cage for some bling. The celebrate sentiment is from Mat Stack 2 Collection.

I'm off to Reno this weekend to go visit a dear friend, as well as attend an Elton John concert! So stinkin' excited! Elton John! It's President's Weekend here in the US, so we have a three-day weekend, and I'm taking full advantage of it, because there are no more breaks until Spring Break in April. Gotta squeeze my travelling in where I can.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Don't know why I"m just seeing this, but glad I did :) Fabulous card. Ribbon treatment is great as is the bling on the bird cage :)

    Trusting the Elton John concert was amazing. He is such a talented artist and has been around FOREVER!! Rocket man comes to mind...when I was around grade 7 I think....many, many, moons ago LOL! Hoping all is well with you :)

  2. LOVE the ribbon. It is such a nice contrast to the simplicty of teh rest of the card. Very nice!
