A color challenge...

I made this card for the Stamp TV color challenge. Initially, I was stumped by a combination of light blue, cranberry, fresh asparagus (green) and white. I also wanted to try a new type of card, so this is my first attempt with Scor-Pal's upright Z card design.

You should check out the challenges on Stamp TV. They are a lot of fun, and the prizes are awesome. By the way, this stamp set, Warm Winter Wishes, was drawn by Carolyn King for Gina K Designs. Cammie has committed all of her profits from this set to the Alzheimer's Association in honor of her Grandmother.

Oh - here's a side view of this card for a better concept of the card.

I really like this style of card. I'm going to use this one again. It folds flat for shipping, but displays beautifully. I hope you like it! Have a terrific day!

Ta for now, ~ky
