Tiddly Inks Tuesday - A Color Challenge

Good morning everyone, how is your Tuesday shaping up so far?  I'm happy because it is my first day back to work after a long weekend and that means a 4 day work week!  I think that is a great way to start the week!  Yesterday was a nice, relaxing, crafty day and I caught up and actually went ahead on many of this week's projects!  Yay!  That hardly ever happens.

Today starts our second challenge of 2012 over at Tiddly Inks!  2012 brought a few changes to our challenge blog, including the length of our challenges.  The challenges will now be running for two weeks instead of one.  Yeah, more time to get your card completed and entered into our challenge each time!

This week we are hosting a color challenge.  We would like yo to use the colors GREEN, YELLOW, ORANGE and BLUE in your projects.  I'll admit, when I first saw this color challenge I could not figure out how in the world I would put these colors together.  BUT, I actually did do it and I love the way the card turned out. 

For my card I used the Tiddly Inks image, Happy Birthday Girl.  

Materials Used:
Copic Markers - I used the color families Y, YG, YR and B.
Spellbinders dies
Big Shot
MS Frond Punch
Crystal Stickles

Here's a close up of my colored image.

So, now that you've seen that these colors really do work well together why not give this week's challenge a try!  Hope to see your project there!
Thanks so much for stopping by today,
