color challenge design team card

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. This is such an exciting day for me.
I guess excited is really an understatement. I am jumpin' up and down doing a happy dance!!

I am part of a new design team on splitcoaststampers for the Tuesday color challenge.
What an honor to be working with Betty Wright, Joanne Travis & Vicki Dutcher. These women are really talented stampers. Just keeping up with them will be a challenge (lol)!!

The colors we are using this week are concord crush, old olive and cherry cobbler.

Our little challenge from our hostess, Betty, was to use argyle -either with a stamp or designer paper or a die cut. I chose to create the argyle look with the stampin-up texturz plate- perfect details.

I really like the look of these colors together. Deep rich colors like this appeal to me.
My card base is the concord crush and then I used concord crush designer paper. Such a deep shade of purple that I absolutely love.
I also used some designer paper from the Stampin-Up Christmas collection "jolly holiday".
Seam binding is so trendy right now in the crafting world for use on cards and other projects. I used some cherry cobbler on my card and added an olive button for my center.
A Stampin-Up border punch was used on the 2 rectangular panels. to complete my card.

This layout was one from the ODBD blog back in April. I really like the layout and have used it several times on my cards.

Well, this completes my post for today. Hope to see you back here again real soon. God bless!!
