I friend of mine asked me for an inspirational/encouraging card so I started by figuring out the sentiment I wanted to use. I grabbed one from the Power Poppy set M-Powering Words (it's a retiring set but you can still pick it up for a deeply discounted price!). I then looked at the colors and decided which ones I wanted to use for the image panel. I went with the yellow and gray in the photo and stamped the background stamp with both colors. The gray got a bit muddy but it's there, I promise :) I then stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral on top of the yellow/gray background.
The background paper I used is some retired SU DSP I have in my stash. As soon as I saw the color of this challenge I instantly thought of this paper and it ended up working out perfectly!
Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see how you interpret these colors!
