~Hunting~ for a card...

Good Morning everyone! I am so excited because I played in my craft room last night, and my main goal was to create a card for a few challenges, and I am happy to report that I succeeded! The challenges are:

Cute Card Thursday: Use beads

Cupcake Craft Challenges: Create a 5x5 birthday card

SPCC: Use the colors shown to the right

I have been wanting to participate in the SPCC challenges for awhile, and I was finally able to find the time. Now honestly when I saw these colors, I really didn't know what to do - these colors are definitely a challenge!

Here is my submission:

The background papers are all Pink Petticoat, though I modified the colors slightly so they included the colors for the challenge. I use Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2, and I copied the colors from Samantha's inspiration photo, then I use the "flood fill" option to modify the colors.

The first 2 lines of the sentiment are from the Clear Dollar Stamps Deer Hunting Set. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Sign Language set because the Happy Birthday sentiment in the Deer Hunting set is a little bit too hard to read.

The deer and the trees are from the Cricut Camp Out cartridge.

Thanks so much for Looking!

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
All patterns are from Pink Petticoat, printed on Bazzill Basics cream cardstock.
Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 was used to modify the colors in the patterns to match the color swatches in the challenge.
