Red is my favorite color. I don't usually mix it with orange and yellow but I don't know why not. Those colors remind me of a beautiful sunset. They are also the colors for the Die Cuttin' Divas challenge this week. I combined the colors with this sketch from Freshly Made.
I had a piece of paper from K and Company that had the colors in it and it was screaming "use me!"
The card base is yellow. The print has what looks like dahlias on it so I took a similar image from Elegant Edges and cut the loopy part in yellow, the background in red, added another circle of the print in the center and popped it up on dimesionals. The bottom section is a coordinating orange with the sentiment stamped in red. I thought I was done until I looked again and noticed the three little dots on the sketch. Out came some yellow rhinestones to finish it off.
I had some trouble photographing this card. I took one in natural light and the color was WAY off. I took another one in my paper light box and it looked very yellowy. I changed the bulb in my lamp to one of the new compact fluorescents and this is what I got. It still doesn't look very bright although the color is pretty close. Any suggestions?
