Blogger's Challenge Friday #10

This week were were challenged to use the layout on page 92 of the Fall/Winter Collection (Circus Train) as our card inspiration. We did not have to make a pocket card, we just had to use the layout with the 5 squares.

This was a tricky challenge for me. I'm not good at randomly positioning things and having them look good. I'm more right brained -- orderly I guess. Anyway, trying to line up the squares just like the sample was making my head explode, so I decided to rotate the card 90 degrees and attempt my own pattern with the squares.

Aside from my personal issues with randomness, this was a really easy card to pull together. The color combination (groovy guava, ruby red, blush blossom and river rock) is from the In Color Combos sheet from Stampin' Up! It's like a color coach supplement with all the new colors for this year.

I hope you enjoyed my entry this week. Don't forget to check out the other Blogger's challenge entries! You can find links to all of their sites in my sidebar.

You know, I really didn't like the card sample that was our Challenge, but everyone did such a fabulous job with it! As usual, all the submissions are as varied and different as we all are. You did an amazing job with the Challenge as well.....love it turned right side up! Love the color combo, too!!
