Another Sunday Morning Challenge

Edited to add: I made a mistake when I originally uploaded the challenge and listed Rose Red as the third color instead of Regal Rose. Using Rose Red may make the card very dark and intense, so I'm editing to give you the option of using Regal Rose instead (though not both Rose Red and Regal Rose). I'm still going to try to make a card using the original challenge colors and we'll see what happens --LOL!

Two Sundays ago I started a tradition and at least some of you have taken me up on my challenges, so here goes another one. I have a feeling this one is going to be tough!

I copied this layout from a swap card I received from a fellow demonstrator-- Pauline Driscoll. However, Pauline used bold bright colors on her card and since we just did that last week I decided to pick a different combination. Next weekend I will post Pauline's card and my CASE of it using the colors from this challenge. But in the meantime, I hope we all have fun thinking of all sorts of different variations on the same theme!

Main Image and Sentiment Stamp Set: Lexicon of Love

Colors: Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red or Regal Rose (and you may, but don't have to use a neutral color of ink and/or card stock for accents)

Layout -- as you see in the photo, thought you can play with the dimensions to make the components fit your card just as long as the basic layout is the same. You may add extra mats/layers if you wish. The circle may be a stamped image or an embellishment (like punched flower)

Permitted: Any background stamps, other image stamps, accessories, embellishments, techniques, etc. Be creative!

This challenge is open to everyone. It will run for 1 week, though I plan to make my first (you know I won't be able to just stop at one) card later today. If you make a card and upload it to your splitcoast gallery or to your blog or web site, leave a comment here with a link. Or, if you prefer, e-mail me a photo/scan of your card to with permission to upload it here and I will be happy to post it for all other readers to see.

Good Luck! I can't wait to see what we come up with! As of this moment I honestly have no clue what my card will look like, but I'm really looking forward to meeting this challenge hear on!

Okay, I've got attempts two and three up on my blog but the second one doesn't count. You'll see why.
