A Color Challenge Card

Over at Moxie Fab World they are having a color challenge contest.

The challenge is to make a card with only these three colors. I don't have a lot of supplies but I did manage a card.

I am trying to force myself out of my normal little box. So I took on this challenge- didn't procrastinate and completed it in 1 day. I wanted this card to be masculine. How did I do?

Paper crafts new magazine has lots of color challenges and I plan on trying a few more. JUst for fun mind you.

So what challenges have you made and met? This is just one of a few but ya know, I have to admit it was fun.

I don't take on a lot of challenges, just ones within myself. I have a few going on that I hope to finish soon, hopefully :0) Great card!

Your card is beautiful. I may have to borrow your idea;)
One of my challenges is making a video everyday for 31 days. So far, so good.

card is certainly neutral enough to be masculine...a lot of men like shades of blue. I saw the magazine in JoAnn Fabrics today...I have so many things to finish don't believe I'll be doing a card challenge...I could never do something that came out crisp and clean like yours...beautiful even if for a man!

Hi Tracy, Oh thank you. Wanted to watch the video tonight but internet is being stupid.
yes, so far so good. I actually did this card twice. Once in their choices and again same colors but inked & distressed the dicken's out of it. You will have to wait until tomorrow to see it. I will be blogging again if the internet is nice.
congrats on sticking with your challenge and so far so good for me on blogging too!;)

I was afraid with the pale colors it was going to be too girly. I might try another just for fun.
I did make this card again and it is not clean and crisp that is for sure but ya know even hubby likes the new one better!
Good luck finishing your stuff. I have a lot to do on my room yet, but need a bit of play time first.

Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and letting me know you can relate to the rabbit day :). I must admit I didn't really look at your card because your Etsy shop grabbed my attention. WOWZERS, your creations are incredible! I really admire those who can do such detailed sewing. I can sew curtains LOL, only after hubby threads the machine for me.

Tracy is the best! And do you know you are the second person from Washington who visited my blog via Tracy's blog :).
