Bright & Bold Color Challenge on the PB Blog

Hi all! I'm hosting the reader challenge this week on the Penny Black Blog and I'm challenging everyone to go bold and bright. Bold and bright isn't something I normally do...and after chatting with my blogging friend Andrea about styles, I realized I also usually stay away from three-color combos on my cards. I usually go with two colors plus a neutral. Soooo.....for this challenge, I'm going to try and break myself out of my own box by not only going bold and bright but also going with a trio of colors. So.....here's my first card for the week...



I went with bright blue, orange, and yellow! It's a 5" square card. I added Stickles to the water and in the centers of the flowers.

Hop on over to the Penny Black Blog and check out the details of the challenge. If you participate, link up your project on the Penny Black Flickr Gallery, you'll have a chance to win a little something! :) Have a great day!
