6/18 My first Diva Challenge Card

Isn't this an awesome color combination? I was inspired to try it when I was blog hopping and saw that the Diva Coffee Break Designs Blog was hosting a color challenge. I love the rich regalness of these colors and I don't know that I would have thought of pairing these colors with Bashful Blue . . . but isn't that a lovely touch?

I used one of my freebie reward sets that I recently received. This one is called Friends 24-7. Can you believe that it has been on my wish list since January? I've seen so many beautiful cards made with this set . . . but then it's scary to get it because you wonder if you can make anything even half so good . . . like all of the ideas for it have been sucked up already. But, I guess I did OK. I like how the image panel is long like the card. This will be an easy one to mail . . . even though I did you some dimensionals. Just can't resist that little bit of "pop!"

Awesome card, Kay....I struggled with that Bashful Blue too, but you really made it work. I used my LAST dimensional today----and then my SU order arrived. PHEW!!! I go through those things a lot!!!
