Simon Says Challenge #1 - Green and Yellow
Simon Says Stamp has started a new challenge blog! The very first challenge is going on right now. There will be a new challenge posted every two weeks. The current challenge is to make anything your heart desires...ATC, card, tag, scrapbook layout etc....as long as you use the colors green and yellow. I love green but have never been a fan of yellow so I had to think this one through a bit. I found some paper that had some bright springy green and yellows and from there my idea developed. I'm having a bit of trouble with one of the colors showing correctly in my photo. There is a bit of orange in the paper that I also used to pull color from for my ribbon and matting the image and sentiment. It is not really showing the true color in the photo. Sorry for this. I should have taken this outside for photographing it.
