Pomegranate Artichokes

This was for yesterday's Color Challenge on SCS, Taken With Pomegranate Artichokes. . .to use Taken With Teal, Purely Pomegranate and Always Artichoke. This color combo was very different, but I like it. I never would have put Taken With Teal and Always Artichoke together. This card also qualifies for my challenge to myself. . .to learn to love the So Much set! Unfortunately, I still don't LOVE it, but at least I like it a little more than I did! The polka dot organdy ribbon on this card really isn't this bright. I think the light picked up the "shimmery-ness" of it and made it look more lime. In real life, it does look a little more olive.

We have a busy day today, so I'm trying to rush to get out of the house. I'd really like to stamp before I go, but don't know if that will happen! We'll see! Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- So Much; Paper- Purely Pomegranate, Always Artichoke, Taken With Teal; Ink- Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, Always Artichoke, Taken With Teal; Accessories- polka dot organdy ribbon from Doodliedoo, Making Memories brads, slit punch, ticket corner punch, circle Coluzzle, paper piercer, Always Artichoke marker, rhinestone brad.

Okay, this must be your day to prove me wrong. I saw this color challenge yesterdy and thought, "yuck". I saw this stamp set in the catty and thought, "yuck, what in the world can you even do with that". And yet, you've made the most beautiful card. You're amazing.

So beautiful! This combo is so pretty, even though it's out of my normal palette. Love the layout.

not my favorite color combo, but it's an interesting design.

any thoughts to share from regionals?

I love your layout and the way you used the set! Your card turned out great! Way to go with colors you wouldn't have put together and a set you aren't sure off!
