Whimsical Wednesday: Color Challenge!

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Good Morning and a happy Hump day to you all!

I love Wednesdays for two reasons; 1. We're on the back end of the week and that much closer to the weekend, and 2. It's payday! :) And that's ALWAYS a good thing! hahaha

Another reason I love Wednesday's is because it's time for another Diedrich Dare! And this week, Mama Diedrich has given her kiddies a bit of a break and is issuing her own dare - a color challenge! The colors are Avocado, Pink, Sky Blue and Raspberry. You can check out the color swatch over at the DD blog post as well as oogle the fabulous creation from this week's featured Daredevil - Randi Wall!

I dear friend of mine is having a birthday next week, so I needed to whip up a birthday card quick. I know how much she loves TGF stamps, so I inked up the sweet Miss Chelsea Wild Sprout and used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch #56 for the layout. I hope she likes it! :) This paper from Pink Paislee matched the colors in the challenge so well I almost wondered if Mama Diedrich herself used this paper as her inspiration! Can you see the blinged out iPod? I added some Stickles to it to really make it sparkle! And now I want a sparkly iPod!! LOL

While you ponder what you might do for this challenge, here's some more inspiration from the rest of the Daredevils, for you:


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a great Wednesday!
