A Real Color Challenge

And Mum's the Word
A real challenging color challenge at Color My heart 
that happens to go with Mum's the Word at Heart 2 Heart
With Ruby and Crystal Blue and White Daisy with
Colonial White this makes a real challenge. For me Ruby
is too bold to go with Crystal Blue. So to soften Ruby 
I stamped it second generation. Then I used Colonial
White for my mat under my White Daisy Sentiment piece.
The two whites were a good mix with the white shimmer trim.
And, a Happy Mother's Day card goes over to Heart 2 Heart.
So, share with us your idea for a Mother's Day creation or
take the color challenge at Color My Heart or both.
CTMH Supplies:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Colonial White
Stamps: Happy to Be Friends
Ink: Crystal Blue, Ruby
Embellishments: White Shimmer Trim

Beautiful card, Jody! I loved your strategy for combining these colors and the background textures. For me the most challenging part of this challenge was combining White Daisy and Colonial White and you did a great job of it. Thanks for sharing with us at Color My Heart Color Dare again!

Beautiful card! I love the random stamping and the texture you gave the card by using the embossing folder. Thank you for inspiring us at Color My Heart Challenge Blog.

What a lovely card! I love the 2nd generation Ruby, too. Perfect touch! Also, the White Daisy and Colonial White layers look wonderful together. Thanks for joining us at Color My Heart!

I agree with you about the Ruby, I would have chosen Tulip (if it were still around). But you made it work! And I love how you matted the two whites together. Beautiful card. Thanks for playing at Color My Heart this week!
