Another color challenge...

This one is a little different. Well, it doesn't come from SCS. Kristina Werner has started posting a color inspiration challenge on her blog each week. She finds these amazing combos from different magazines and such. She also does this cool thing (she's very computer savvy) with the first 25 enteries, it's called the round up. Check it out Here is the source of inspiration.

Isn't it cool? The colors to use for the challenge are: Tempting turquoise, Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Choc. chip, close to cocoa and very vanilla. So, from this picutre I came up with the following card and I really do love how it came out. I told you yesterday that I had used the same layout on another card ( I know I have seen similar layouts, so the idea is not my own. Thanks to anyone who has used a similar layout that I'm sure I was inspired by). I used my Bali Breeze paper and my square punches and the Embrace Life stamp set. I stamped the branch image three times is three different colors and left one of the squares blank so I could include the sentiment. I did ink up the word seperatly so I could make it fit the 1 1/4 inch square.
What I love about this hobby is that you can be inspired by anything and everything!
