The color challenge at Dynamic Duos this week is Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  I really, really don't like Rich Razzleberry, so this was a true challenge for me.  I combined the color challenge with the sketch from Stamping 411.

I went simple with this card, letting the Big Shot and the colors do the work.  I used my Daisies die and the Little Leaves die to create a flower and leaves.  I sponged all the die cuts to give a bit more dimension.  All said, despite not liking Razzleberry, I actually quite like this card.  I think all the white softens the glare of the Razzleberry somewhat.

Here are the challenge details:

Thanks for looking.  Hopefully, I'll get some more posts up this week, not having to deal with that pesky full-time job for a week LOL.

Ooh, Karren - this is so dramatic! I did laugh at your strong dislike of Rich Razzleberry (I, personally, think it is a gorgeous colour, LOL). You have made a BEAUTIFUL card!

Carolyn said...

Great card Karren. I have yet to make my card as I am having a bit of trouble putting together something that is not over the top. I just love simple elegance of your card, great inspiration.
