Color Blocking

Sharon Johnson's challenges are always fun. This week was Color Blocking. You know how you have one idea in your head, and it turns out totally different! That's how my first card started (the blue & green one)! I did another one and although I like the first one, the second one is my favorite in its simplicity (the caramel, guava & pomegranate one)!! The colors were chosen based on the ribbon alone--I would never have put these colors together! See how you like them! (Remember you can click on the photos for a really nice close view of that yummy ribbon!)
Stamps: Holiday Blitz, Mixed Message by Papertrey
Paper: WW, DP Slab from Michaels, Purely Pomegranate, Creamy Caramel, Groovy Guava, Confetti Tan, Green Galore, Ballet Blue
Ink: Ballet Blue, Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava
Acc: Ribbons from Michaels, Rhinestones, Markers, DD Glitter

These are both terrific, but I really like the present one. It's just so striking in it's simplicity!
