Basic Grey Challenge 6: colour combo

Today's BG blog challenge is to make a card with a certain colour combo - a choice of green and red, brown and cream, or blue and gold/yellow/orange. I think I'd have found the first two options easier, but I decided to go for the third option.

I chose BG cupcake papers, which lent themselves to the colours of Donald - printing the Happy Birthday bits on the computer.

I really found this was a challenge because I won't normally think of this colour combo.

A spoonful of sugar challenge 20 pink and green

Earlier this week I came across A spoonful of sugar and thought I would do a card for this challenge - this time: to use pink and green colour scheme.

I've mainly used BG two scoops with a little sultry for good measure! The stamped daisy has been coloured in with karisma and sansodor.

I also swiped versamark over the squares and heat embossed with the hot pink and then stamped and embossed the images with black. The papers are Dovecraft:
