Challenge #14

Photo from Country Living
Hi all, time for a new Peeps challenge! I found this photo some time ago and flagged it. I think I was first drawn to the background which reminds me of Harvest Gold. I am so loving that color! For me, color is usually a major factor in coming up with a design. I love to select the colors and lay them all out for inspiration. It is so much fun to just play and change things around to get different effects. I was intrigued about ways to use 2 primary colors with both cream and white. I have seen some really awesome cards recently that use white as the accent--very striking! 

So here's the challenge: Make something using RED, YELLOW and CREAM with at least a dollop of WHITE!

When thinking about what to make, I first thought of seasons. The red and yellow seemed naturals for summer and also for fall. My first card is a basket of apples for a fall thank you note.
But how about spring and winter! Card 2 is my winter sample. Something bright and cheery for a cold winter day. Hard to remember how that feels with our long stretch of over 100 degree days! I again used plastic film over the globe image. So easy to do since I found the right glue! I even used an eyelet! I have a bunch of these laying unused in a drawer. One of my first 'had to have' purchases when I started stamping. DH bought me a Crop-a-Dile too! I thought I was going to use it for everything (LOL!).
Hope you find time to play. You don't have to pick a season. Anything that inspires you will do--JUST HAVE FUN!

Have a good week!
Hugs, Sharron
