Color Challenge ~ Heartfelt Thanks

Today I'm sharing a card I made over the weekend for a color challenge in one of my card swap groups.  

For this challenge I selected Lee Holland's Piglet with Flower and made this Thank You card.

 These were the color combos we were given with white, black, gray and kraft brown being our neutral free colors.

I stayed pretty close to the basic five shades only adding an extra blue for the under side of the hat and an additional shade of salmon for the skin shading. 

After coloring, I used the Gina Marie Designs Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles for the decorative edge. Then I added the stamped sentiment in the top corner.  Next I added the solid red coordinating mat which I cut slightly larger than the die cut rectangle.  For the card base I selected a soft yellow polka-dotted patterned cardstock, then secured the two layers on top.

 Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
