*A New (to me) Colour Challenge*

Despite feeling pretty nasty all day yesterday, I was feeling the need to create.  It took me a while, but I managed to finish one card.

I used the current Fall To Layout challenge over at the Clean and Simple blog (see the link in my sidebar) and couldn't decide on colours to use.  So I did a bit of blog surfing and discovered these colours on a few blogs and followed the links to the Curtain Call Color Challenge....
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Pacific Point, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist
*Images: Amuse; Inkadinkadoo
*Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! Whisper White pigment
*Tools: Martha Stewart border punch
*Challenges:  FTL122; Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 64



I wasn't too sure about this layout but now that it's done, I really like it!  I was wanting to use flowers instead of balloons but I was creating a birthday card for my father in law and decided that balloons would make this more masculine than flowers would have.

Be sure to check out the Clean and Simple blog and play along in this week's challenge.... and check out the Curtain Call Color Challenge too!  I will be playing with them again too!
