Tuesday Color Challenge # 104

Here is the Color Challenge for this week:
and here’s my card:
UDI Color Challenge 104
It’s pretty simple.  Here’s what I used:
Stamp Set: Pursuit of Happiness
Ink: Pacific Point
Designer Series Paper (DSP): Floral District, Brights Color Stack
Card Stock:  Pacific Point, Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch

The base is Pacific Point card stock, and I centered a 5-1/2" x 3-1/8" panel of Lucky Limeade on top.

The square medallion measurements are as follows:
Floral District Designer Paper: 3" x 3" I just cut the section of poppies I liked best.
Crumb Cake Card Stock: 3-1/16 x 3-1/16 I added the strip of scalloped border underneath.  If you don't like that line, you could make one side 3-3/8" and punch it with the Scallop Border Punch.
Real Red Card Stock: 3-1/4" x 3-1/2"
Tangerine Tango DSP:  I punched a strip with the Scallop Border Punch, and cut it down to 6 scallops and added it under the red layer.

I layered them all flush to the right and centered vertically. Then I popped them up with dimensionals.  I was feeling lucky, so I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink directly on the Lucky Limeade panel, but you might want to wait to glue that panel down until you can measure it against the square medallion in case it doesn't come out the way you want it the first time. That way you have the option of flipping the panel over and using the other side.  You would actually have 4 shots at it on just that one panel before having to cut a new one because you could flip it around and use the other end if necessary and your boo boo would be hidden by the square.

Hope you enjoyed this project. Stop by the UDI Blog to see what the rest of the design team made! Have a great day!
