"Because of You" Crazy 4 Challenges

Happy Saturday!  We have a new and fun challenge for you this week at Crazy 4 Challenges!   Check out the C4C blog for more challenge details at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C221).  

This week's challenge is 
a trio of colors
blue, green, and purple

For my card I am using Verve's Let It Be, Dream Big, Joyful Blooms, and Sweet Scallop Tag stamp sets along with Verve's Cut Above Joyful Blooms and Dreamy Leaves,  and Sweet Scallop die sets.   I combined some Prima Madeline designer papers to coordinate with the color challenge.   I added some ink distressing and sewing machine stitching.   I stamped and die cut the sweet scalloped frame using dark chocolate ink.  I stamped the sentiment in royal purple ink to give me the final color for the trio of colors for the challenge.    I die cut the Joyful Blooms using SU text designer papers.   I stamped the flower outlines using dark chocolate ink.  I layered the flowers using foam tape.  I topped the flowers with a gold pearl.  I stamped the leaves and added some ink distressing and Copic veining accenting.   I finished my card with some rustic twine topped with a prism cut turquoise dot.  


I am playing along with this week's Mojo Sketch.  I looked at the sketch and obviously focused more on the tall and skinny concept than the sketch.  My card took on a look all of its own.   I really had no clue I was off that much until I loaded my card.    I am playing along with this month's Curtain Call Challenge!  My card works perfectly with these colors!  

Check out what the rest of the team did with this week's challenge!
