With snow swirling outside - finally - I thought I'd pull out some blues and whites for this challenge.

I'm trying to get better at challenges this year so I'm starting out by linking up with Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge. This week is Anything Goes.

Sadly, I needed a sympathy card this week for a sweet lady and the colors lent themselves to the need.

I chose SU colors Wisteria Wonder, Night of Navy and Marina Mist. The Marina Mist is one of the colors in a retired SU DSP - Botanical Gazette. I thought the birds went well with the new set from SU - Beautiful Peacock.

I used Wisteria Wonder base then began the layering with the other two colors. My favorite MS punch, the lace, brought a bit of femininity to the card. The peacock feathers are stamped in Marina Mist and the Peacock in Night of Navy on Whisper White. The trick to working with this set is to use two high contrasting colors against one another. I added Basic Rhinestones in clear to accent the feathers.  The sentiment inside and out is from Thoughts & Prayers. The white and navy circles are cut from the Stitched Framelits SU set. 

That's mine.. let's see yours! Just add the link to your blog post (not your blog URL but the url to the actual blog post) and Mr. Linky will add you to the list so we may stop by to check out your creation!

There aren't any rules. You may use any company product you like. My only request is if you use a stamp or something special, link to the company so we may add to our stash, too :-D

And remember to grab the Color Challenge button on my sidebar to link your followers here. I'd love to have them playing along!


  1. So sorry for your loss Kelly. This is a lovely card to express your sympathy. Beautiful design and colours. Thanks for sharing your creation with us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges. Linda

  2. So sorry that you needed to have a sympathy card. That is one that I don't usually have on hand, so each one is made as they need comes up. I just love your color combo and the peacock stamp. Lovely.

  3. At my age, I never have enough of these kinds of cards. Sorry Kelly that you needed one. These are pretty colors, in fact my colors! Maybe I will try again to make one for your color challenge. Have a great week!
