Friday Challenge! 3.11

Good morning everyone! It’s Friday (yay!) and that means Challenge Day over at This week’s challenge is a color challenge based on this inspiration photo below. Anyone can participate in these challenges, so head over and check it out. All you have to do is complete a layout with this color scheme and upload it. And the best part is you will be entered into a drawing for a free prize! Who doesn’t like free scrap goodies? 🙂

And here is my layout based on the color scheme of this photo:

This was a fun layout I created about the special relationship between my oldest and youngest daughters. I started with a base of plain 12 x 12 cardstock (DCWV), then cut down another sheet of 12 x 12 patterned paper (AC) for the large mat and rounded the corners. Then I used 2 coordinating strips of patterned paper (AC) of varying widths to create the vertical pieces. I used a thin strip of ribbon between the two vertical pieces. All of the edges of the paper were inked using the Concord Grape Distress Ink. I was finally able to use the really cool basketweave (lattice? hmm) style punch from EK to do the horizontal border on the bottom. Finally, I just added a few little  flowers (Prima and Sassafras) and the cute butterfly. I added some little action lines under the butterfly.

I hope you all have a great weekend!!
