A Pleasant Surprise

Don’t you just love it when you have a vision for a project and it turns out better than you thought it would?  That’s what happened to me with this project.  I started out knowing I wanted to participate in the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

And then I decided I really wanted to try the color challenge at Color Throwdown, as the inspiration picture is just gorgeous.

But when I pulled out the card stock in these colors, I was a little stumped.  So I just picked a stamp set off my shelf and focused on the sketch, and the colors kinda took care of themselves.  I ended up liking this combination of colors a lot!  What a pleasant suprise!  I love it when that happens!  That’s one of the reasons I like participating in these challenges — sometimes you end up pleasantly surprised at what you like.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Amy, your card is absolutely gorgeous using these colors! I have to admit I was NOT a fan of starfruit but it does work when it’s paired with the right colors. By itself…not so much – lol! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Color Throwdown!

  2. Such a great card, Amy! I love the chevron background and the way you put together those colors. Fabulous job! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
