I am quickly becoming addicted to the Embellish Magazine Color Trend Challenges!
Ashley Newell manages to select color combinations and themes that are wonderfully paired, but still a challenge to work with – and I love a challenge!
As soon as I saw this week’s challenge, I had to participate! Why?
Well – I love the colors – but I REALLY love French Macaroons!!!!
I just love the picture Ashley chose for the inspiration banner…so before I got started on my card for the challenge, I walked across the street to the Chocolatier, where they sell lots of yumminess, including these:
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way – here’s my card for the challenge.
I went with a simple layout, staying true to my style – but I added a vintage feel with tea-dyed edges and a Rustic Cream and Kraft card base.
The colors I chose are slightly brighter hues than the ones in the inspiration photo – but bright is the Damask Love way of doing things!
The circles are adhered with varying thicknesses of foam adhesive, adding some depth to the project.
Thanks for stopping by for a little Damask Love!
