Pals Paper Arts Challenge #140

Welcome to my first Challenge!  The Stampin' Up group that I am part of is Stampin' Pretty Pals. They do two challenges each month, and I hope to start participating in each one.  

This is a color challenge, using three Stampin' Up Colors.  See how I have incorporatated these colors, three of my personal favorites, into one card!  Although I love them all, I am not sure I would have thought to combine them, but I am very happy with my final result!!  

I used Summer Starfruit as my card base.  This is one of our new 2012-2014 In Colors.  The other colored cardstock is Marina Mist, part of our Subtles Collection.  Last but not least, Real Red is used as my main Accent Color.  It is part of our Brights Collection. I purposefully attached the layers to the upper left corner to show more color of the color by my image.  See the list below for my card ingredients.

Stamp Sets- Occasional Quotes (hostess collection) and Betsy's Blossoms (126006)

Paper- Summer Starfruit (126839), Marina Mist (119682), and Whisper White (100730), along wtih Birds of a Feather DSP (126899)

Our NEW Classic Stamp FOAM pads-  Summer Starfruit (126991), Marina Mist (126962), and Real Red (102482)
