Papertrey Posse Color Challenge!

Hi there!  It's time for the Papertrey Posse Parade of blogs!  This month Amy challenged us to what I thought would be a difficult color challenge!  But I actually loved these colors in the end!!  Thanks, Amy!

The colors are Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry and Dark Chocolate.


I paired it with this sketch from the Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge #10.  Love their challenges but I don't always have time to participate! 


I was trying to figure out how to incorporate these colors together and a lightbulb went off in my mind.....make some background paper using all four colors!  I pulled out Distressed Stripes and got to work.  I love these colors together in plaid!  I pulled out my beloved Friend's 'Til the End and stamped the smaller flower in Dark Chocolate on Melon Berry Bitty Dot dp.  The leaves are Ocean Tides felt and were cut out with the smaller leaf die from the Delightful Dahlia die set.  I did take the small leaf stamp from Delightful Dahlia and stamp over the felt leaf in Dark Chocolate.  The Aqua Mist bg was stamped in Dark Chocolate using Background Basics: Tin Types. The Dark Chocolate felt scallops were cut with the medium scallop die.  
The Details:
Create a card using the colors provided below - Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, and Dark Chocolate (or something close if you don't have these on hand).

Use at least one PTI product on your card.

Post your creation to your blog on July 15th for our official Papertrey Posse Parade of Blogs!

On July 15th, after you have posted your card, stop by and sign Mr. Linky on the official Parade of Blogs July 2010 post.

Everyone is invited to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a great day!
