Stamp-a-faire Challenge #1 + Summer Card Camp Week 4

I'll admit it: I'm envious beyond words of the PTI friends who are attending the special Stamp-a-faire event in Cincinnati today! Hopefully it will be an annual event and I might get to go next year. :) But in the meantime, Nichole and the DT have challenges that will be posted all day on Nichole's blog, so that we can play along too!

The first challenge is: "Create a project featuring patterned strips that are created with some of your favorite decorative elements." I have had a design element in my head for a while that I thought fit this challenge well, so I pulled out Modern Basics, stamped a pattern, and colored it in. While I was at it, I figured I would use a color combo from Card Camp Week 4, so that my card will be for that challenge also! The color combo (see below) is pink, orange, yellow, blue and purple... wow, definitely brighter colors than my usual palette! But I think they look nice in the Modern Basics motif.


I used a Bitty Box patterned paper for the purple, and Sending You for the sentiment. Also added a banner stamped in white with Polka Dot Basics 2, and three little pearls.


Here is the Card Camp color combo that I used. Thanks for looking!

Debbie, the banner looks like a ribbon. I love the card and the color palette--not colors I would normally use, either. I'm into softer colors, but I absolutely love your card!

Awesome card! Love the design and not colours I would use either, but they came together beautifully here!

Love your interpretation of this challenge! The Card Camp colors are really fun and fresh. I am enjoying Card Camp vicariously thru your blog, sorry that I could not participate myself. Maybe next year!

Happy colors, happy card :>)
I too shy away from brighter colors, but you really committed to it with your card! Great clean and graphic feel, even with all the patterns. The top part is so colorful that the grid feels like a solid.
