The Challenge 30-You Are Kind of Amazing

The Challenge is back again with a new challenge!  Next up in our new format is a color challenge.  This week's colors are Smoky Slate, Real Red, Pool Party, and Whisper White.

You Are Kind of Amazing card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from WPlus9I used the colors along with WPlus9's Unforgettable stamp set.  I colored the elephant
in shades of gray and the balloon in red, then cut the images with the matching dies.  The pieces were adhered to a piece of gingham patterned paper using foam tape.  I adhered the panel to a gray card base, then added the sentiment to the left side of the panel.  It was stamped on a solid red panel for a bold contrast against the gingham background.  A few white sequins scattered around the elephant and balloon finished the design.
