No black

This was a bit of a tough challenge for me - use blues, browns, purples/plums - and no black.  I used a variety of Costco double sided cs (in my stash for  LONG time - it was a huge pack!), and Chocolate Chip ink for the Unity stamps.  I fussy cut the bird, and embossed the light blue layer with a bird folder - from Paper Studio.  The embossing is highlighted with Chocolate Chip chalk - but does not show well here.  The strips are Washi tape.  Oh, yes, some of the circles are Spellbinders Majestic elements, and the tag is highlighted with a crystal gem.

This card is super sweet! I would also be intimidated by the color combo, but you pulled it off beautifullly. Love the shimmer too!

Thank you for playing along at Fresh Brewed Designs Choose Your Challenge!

The little bird is so cute and I love how you added the washi tape for your purple element. I agree with Heather above, you pulled off the colour challenge beautifully. Thanks so much for joining in our challenge at Our Creative Corner. Anne x

Not sure which card you have entered into Challenges 4 Everybody, as when you click on your name it says the page isn't available, I clicked on your home tab but am unsure which card you have entered. I am already a follower of your blog and hope you are one of mine. Happy crafting! Ange
