House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #163 - Color Challenge!

The House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #163 is a color challenge!  Create a project using Amethyst (a shade of purple), White, and one other color.  My unusual color combination is Amethyst, White, and my other color is Yellow!  I wanted to pick up the main colors found in the image.  I used an image and sentiment from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse Designs (R) Project Book 1 CD.  I printed the image from the CD using my inkjet printer, rounded the corners and adhered it to a panel of amethyst cardstock.  My card is a 5 1/2" square.  I then cut about a half inch off the front of the card base and then used my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to create a file folder card!  The designer paper I used is from a retired Stampin' Up paper pack.  The cluster of flowers are from a Martha Stewart adhesive flower pack.  The white leaves are punched using a Martha Stewart punch.  I used white curling ribbon to compliment the streamers in the image!

This was a fun card to create and also my first time to use an image from the CD.  I am having lots of fun playing along as a GDT member with the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenges during the months of January and February! 

We hope you'll play along with Color Challenge.  You Can find the challenge HERE.
