GCA #23 - Non-Traditional Valentine's colors!!

Hello everyone!!! Just as much as I love non-traditional colors at Christmas time, I thought I'd try this out on Valentine's day card!! I had these pieces of cardstock on my craft table from another project and thought they would make great colors for a Valentine's card. My colors are: Confetti Cream, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Very Vanilla. This card is also for FS100 on SCS! This week the FS is JulieHRR, AKA Julie Ebersole! Julie has an amazing style and one that I find very hard to do on my own. She makes awesome one layer and minimal layered cards. She is NOT afraid of negative white space on a card!!! Here is the card I CASE'd: Felted Flowers Mothers Day.

My changes include:

* Colors of cardstock/ink/dsp
* Theme
* I used the Top Note die as my focal point
* I used the same felt flowers but only 2 and a small filigree brad for the center.
* I paper pieced the elephant (I LOVE doing this!!)
* I turned my card to be a vertical top folding card

I tried to keep it simple like Julie, but I may have gone just a little over!!

Now for this week's challenge!!

You are to create a card/project with a Valentine's Day theme, BUT using non-traditional colors!! That means NO use of pinks, reds, silvers, grays or golds. I know you can do it!! Your card can be elaborate or simple, that is up to you! Have fun!!
And don't foget the inside!!! (Not a requirement for the GCA!)

To be entered in the challenge drawing, make a ONE LAYER card, upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery and post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment by January 9, 2009 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner through a random number generator and post the next day.

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenge and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it!If you upload your card on SCS, or Paper Craft Planet, please put GCA23(NO SPACE IN BETWEEN GCA AND 22) in the keyword section. That way everyone can look at all of the creations at once! If you've been waiting to join in the fun, jump on in and have some fun!!

Happy Stamping!!!
