Fab Friday Color Challenge 90: Friendly Wishes

Good morning!  One of my favorite things about short holiday weeks is that we're already at the halfway point of the week, feeling kind of tired after all this weekends fun (I'm sure you can understand).  Today I decided to play along with this weeks Fab Friday color challenge.  I love all these bright colors individually but will admit I haven't tried all four together before.  I decided to change things up and go with a very geometric card.

I started with Tempting Turquoise cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Night of Navy cardstock for the cardfront and embossed it with the Big Shot and Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  Next I used the Big Shot and Layering Squares Framelits to cut two larger squares using Real Red and Pacific Point cardstock.  I used some Brights Designer Series Paper and smaller square framelits to cut out squares using the Real Red and Tempting Turquoise DSP. 

For the Pacific Point square I embossed it using the Big Shot and Lovely Lace Embossing Folder before starting to layer the squares.  For the greeting I used the Friendly Wishes stamp set and stamped using Night of Navy ink directly on the Real Red square.  I attached all the squares to the cardfront and used dimensionals just on the smallest square so it pops up.  I want to add a little bling (come on, you're surprised??) so I turned to the Metallic Enamel Shapes and added two of the stars which was just what I needed.

I know this is definitely not my normally style but I really like how this turned out and it's a great way to show off all these colors and how they work together, go figure!  That's one of the reasons I love participating in these challenges, it helps me try new things, you never know what you may like but don't know it yet.
