MEFY Color Combo Challenge

Happy fifth Monday! Fifth days of the month only happen about four times a year, but when they do, they sure throw off our monthly challenge schedule! Any time there is a fifth Monday the challenge at Made Especially For You will be a color combo challenge. I absolutely love color combos and have a whole board (almost 700 pins!) filled with them on my Pinterest, which you can see by clicking here. I find them so fun to work with!

This week's challenge is to create a card inspired by the provided color combo:

I'll admit this was a tough color combo for me to work with! I had no problem finding solid colored papers to match these colors, but I had very few patterned papers that matched this combination. Here's what I came up with:

I paired together some polka dot papers and embossed the rectangle behind the 'HELLO' with my Cuttlebug to give it some texture. I used a corner punch on the blue cardstock and then embossed it with the flower and went over the embossing with a white gel pen. Added some pearls and I was done!

The winner of this week's challenge will receive their choice of three sets of images from The Cutting Cafe, not to mention a one-week guest designer position here at MEFY!

Stop by the Weekly Challenge page to see some more inspiration from the design team!
