Simply Betty Challenge #3

Simply Betty Challenge #3
Non-traditional Colors!!


This week we have such a neat challenge for you and I know a DT member or two had a bit of trubs with this one. I suppose that's why it's called a challenge cuz believe me, even WE have troubles sometimes!! 

The idea is NOT to use the traditional colors of orange, purple, black or green for your project but to come up with a new color combo for Halloween. As you can see I chose brown and pink!!  It's one of my favorite combo's but I really used it cuz I luv the paper I used for it. [See deets below]  This is Drew from the Punky Teens digi line at Simply Betty Stamps.  Isn't she wonderfully wicked?!!! 



THIS WEEK'S PRIZE:

*******Halloween Emos in RUBBER are now in and ready to ship so if you've been eyeballing a MUST HAVE make your way over to Simply Betty  Stamps to check it out!!  

So what do yo think?!  I would LOVE to see your non-traditional colors as I have made sooooo many lately with the traditional colors.

Check out all the beauty inspiration over at Simply Betty Stamps challenge blog.  I LUV THEM!!  Also check out all the details for this challenge over there as well!!

I've also used a very cool sentiment that my IRL friend Cheri made up.  Thanks Cheri!!

Awesome color combo and such a creative ribbon technique! Great job on the challenge. I totally LOVED your sentiment! It made me smile on a gloomy rainy day!

I LOVE it. I love the challenge of using non-traditional colors. I mean, not all children go out in black and orange, right? Love the coiled effect down the left side and the sentiment is fabulous!

Sheri said...

What a funny card! Love it and your great use of color etc.

Nancy said...

Me again - don't know where my other post went. Is the dripping under the sentiment a punch also, or part of the sentiment? If my other post doesn't show up, I will redo it.
