Kristina Werner Color challenge

Another cute color set from Kristina Werner. I have to admit, when I saw the colors for this challenge, I thought to myself that it might be hard to lay something out with these colors. I went out into my stamp room tonight for an open stamp night. Only one girlfriend came, but we had a blast. I was looking for my stash of extra card packets for the troops. I found this packet that had to be over 2 or 3 years old with this paper that had the SAME colors as the challenge! Isn't this fun??

Yet another stamp set that I need to reluctantly say good bye to. I'll miss "amazing" Anyway, one note about the brads. They looked a little plain when i finished the card. So, I mixed crystal effects with dazzling diamonds and painted them. I added some teal reinker to the mix to make the center. By rights, I should have let the first clear layer dry before adding the one with color (to prevent a color meld) but I was too excited and just dropped it on there.

Measurements for this card: I cut my base layer 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and scored it at 4.25" My green layer is 4 x 5 1/4". The dsp is 1" x 5 1/4". the blue piece is 2.75" square and the white focal point is 2 1/2" square. I had fun with this one! Thanks for another great challenge Kristina!
