Fab 'n Funky - Colors that Clash

Hello Everyone,

Another wonderful Wednesday!!
It's new challenge day at Fab 'n Funky.
This week we are challenging everyone to mix up colors that don't usually go together. I know many of us use all sorts of colors in our card making - but let try and see if we can challenge ourselves to go out of the comfort zone and mix it up!!

Here are two cards that have un-traditional color combos.

I thought it might be fun to combine brown, black, olive and yellow.
What do you think?
I am also submitting this card for the current challenge at :
and for card #2 :

I combined orange, purple and brown.

Have a good day.

Celebrate with LOTV

Happy Canada Day
to my fellow Canadians!!

This morning I am going to show a fun and out-of-the-box card that I made for my mom. She has a wedding to go to next weekend and wanted a creative gift card holder. I searched You-Tube for some creative card and found a great tutorial for a double-pull card. You can find it here.

Here's what I came up with :

This is the CLOSED view
And this is the OPEN view

The gift card pocket is on the top and there is room for a little writing on the botton. And it all slides back closed to fit nicely in an envelope. Love it!!

Here is another little close-up of the coloring. I even colored thier hair the actual colors of the bride and groom. (A little personal touch).

I am submitting this card for the :

Hope you enjoyed and have a great weekend!!
